Misha Treasure

(Cruise Centre Manager/Consultant)

I am in my 9th year at Cathie Rice Travel and during my time here, I have travelled to many amazing destinations. One of my favourite holidays would have to be South America, visiting Peru’s Inca city “Machu Picchu” and exploring beautiful villages well off the beaten track.  In November 2016 i was lucky enough to be able to cruise on the Magnificent Ovation of the Seas! Contact Misha for all things cruising!

During my 10 years with Cathie Rice Travel, I have been blessed to experience a number of vastly different destinations and adventures.

Most recently I spent quality time with family on the North Island of New Zealand.  I would love to share some of my travel experiences with you.

Camilla’s dream holiday would be to visit either Machu Picchu, Peru or the Camino de Santiago, Spain.

 Brittany Gellard

(Senior Consultant)

I have been with Cathie Rice Travel for 8 years and have had many amazing travel experiences in that time. My favourite destination is the beautiful islands of Croatia – the local food, wine, stunning beaches and buzzing atmosphere make it a place I hope to visit again in the future. When I travel I love to get the most out of every day! I find guided holidays are a great way to do this and have had fantastic experiences with Trafalgar, Contiki and Insight Vacations.
