Flight Centre Store Manager Wins Top Honour

31 July 2013

Flight Centre Store Manager, Michelle Nievaart was lauded last week as the  Best Australian Retail Travel Agency Manager at the prestigious National Travel Industry Awards. Michelle, who's based at Flight Centre Garden City in Western Australia, was recognised for her commitment to best practice, individual achievement and excellence.

"This award has capped off an amazing year with Flight Centre. Together with my incredible team, it's great to celebrate our achievement and continue to offer exceptional service to our customers. Working for Flight Centre is terrific because being with the company has also given me the opportunity to travel around the world. I also lived and worked for Flight Centre in California and Florida," said Michelle.

Given that Michelle has enjoyed a fruitful ten years with the company, we thought we'd spotlight just a couple of the inspiring destinations around the world that she's explored.

 

....................................................................................................................................

 

The Giza Plateau, Egypt

"Egypt was just a dream come true because I'd always wanted to see the Pyramids. After my Giza exploration and camel ride, we took a cruise down the Nile. Abu Simbel was just extraordinary."

Jungfrau, Switzerland

"I went to Switzerland with my husband to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary - so this will always be a sentimental favourite. Incidentally this was the first time my husband had seen snow."

Prague, Czech Republic

"Prague really is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was an absolute pleasure to walk through the streets of this stunning European capital."

Trekking With The Gorillas, Uganda

"This would have to be one of my highlights of the past ten years: trekking with Gap Adventures for over an hour to find the gorillas. We spent about twenty minutes with the silverbacks - but your heart really does skip a beat because they are only two metres away."

 

....................................................................................................................................

 

Berlin, Germany

"I was keen to explore Berlin because of all the history. The Berlin Wall was so unique that I couldn't resist buying a piece of it; I now have a small fragment at home."

 

....................................................................................................................................

 

Niagara Falls, Canada

"It was Trafalgar Tours that guided me around Canada. Taking the Maid of the Mist so close to the Falls was absolutely brilliant. It was also great to see the water from both the Canadian and the American side."

 

....................................................................................................................................

 

Allure of the Seas, Nassau

"I absolutely love cruising; I've done over 20 cruises. No avid cruiser has really cruised until they've been on the Allure of the Seas;  it's the biggest cruise ship in the world. I went through the Caribbean with this luxury vessel. This holiday will always be special because it was my best friend's 40th birthday celebrations."

 

....................................................................................................................................

 

Boston, USA

"In Boston, I couldn't resist asking a policemen for a photo opportunity with their bike. They were so nice. I'm such a baseball fan; so being in the city with the Boston Red Sox was incredible and touring the Samuel Adams Brewery was just terrific."
