Nicky has worked in the travel industry for 20 years and comes to Sonia Jones Travel with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Nicky has travelled all across the globe and has especially fond memories of her time spent in South East Asia and Hawaii. She loves cruising as it allows you to really see destinations from a different perspective. Nicky says that there is something special about arriving by water, rather than at a busy airport!
Each year Nicky tries to visit a new place so that she can experience a different culture and create memories that will last a lifetime.
