Helen Williams, Businesswoman, Cape Town

I have been a single parent for many years and I have always had the yen to travel. It was never a case of when to travel, but who to travel with. One day I picked up the Link Up magazine and found my solution. Joanna Castle was organising a tour to India. Although my intention was to go to Egypt, India was close enough. The tour was set for the April 2006. Joanna has an amazing talent for creating memorable trips to exotic destinations filled with history, magical fun filled moments, breathtaking architecture, and a kaleidoscope of smells, sounds and impressions that will transform your life forever.

Since India I have travelled to Morocco, Vietnam and finally did get to Egypt with her.
Travelling is wonderful but tiring. Joanna has the ability to put together a tour that offers the opportunity to recharge your energy levels after hectic spells of travelling, site seeing, and yes even shopping. We go to a little village for a few days to ride bicycles or donkeys, a dawn balloon ride, or tea at the Winter Palace.
This year I am doing two trips with her. Can hardly wait till Bali in July. Oh yes, I almost forgot the most important part, her trips are sooooooo affordable.
