Virtuoso Travel Week

Last month Sonia flew to Las Vegas for the annual Virtuoso Travel Week conference. With 5000 attendees from over 100 countries, there was plenty of virtual travel shopping to do be done! Sonia had 140 appointments as well as multiple networking sessions with the world's best hotels, resorts, cruise lines, tour operators and local suppliers. It was a wonderful event and inspiring to be immersed in global travel once again.

Travel's Hot Spots

Are people travelling internationally again? Absolutely! The hottest destinations include Europe (especially Italy and Greece), the United States and Canada, and then this week out of the gates came Japan! The announcement from the Japanese government around the removal of PCR testing and relaxation around travel requirements has resulted in a huge spike in Japan travel enquiries. The catch is that your travel must be booked through an accredited travel agency... and the great news is that SJT is both accredited AND a Japan travel specialist! So for those wanting to sit beneath the cherry blossoms, soak in an onsen or hit the ski slopes, get in touch with Sonia today to get planning your Japanese adventure of a lifetime.


A Personal Travel Tale

As some of you know, Sonia's father hails from Northern Italy. Sonia and her dad had planned a special trip back to see their Italian family in March 2020, which sadly was not meant to be. Since then, there has been much talk about when the return to Italy would happen. Well I am pleased to say that last month it did! Sonia took her father back to Recoaro Terme, his tiny hometown about 2 hours' drive from Venice. It was a very special experience to reunite with the family and the smile on her father's face said it all!


Finally, Thank You

Amy and Sonia have been overwhelmed by the volume of referrals that we have received in the past few months. Thanks to each and every one of you who has passed our details on to your friends and family members. We have had such an influx of new business (yay!) that we have recruited not one but TWO new staff to join our team! Watch this space in the coming weeks!
