With over 12 years’ travel industry experience and an impressive 50 countries across five continents under his travel belt, Nathan is perfectly placed to help you plan your dream holiday. He has travelled extensively throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and Australia and in a variety of travelling modes including solo, with his young family and in small groups, and on bus tours and cruise ships.
Nathan’s top three travel destinations are China, for its beautiful countryside and crazy cities; Bolivia, for its people, food and untouched beauty; and Germany for the castles, villages, wartime history and the unforgettable experience of flying down the Autobahn in a Mercedes. In fact, his favourite travel memory is of ice skating at the Christmas markets in Munich, although he says the audience of 1,000 boisterous locals made it hard to concentrate!
Apart from travel, Nathan’s other passion is golfing. He’s an expert on golf holidays and has played courses in over 14 countries where he gets to combine his two interests. “For a golfer, there is nothing better than playing exotic golf courses with local caddies, amazing locations and great sport while enjoying everything a foreign country has on offer,” he says. Some of the standout courses he has visited include Sun City in South Africa, which borders Pilanesburg Game Reserve; Pebble Beach in the US overlooking the Pacific; St Andrews in Scotland for the history; the massive selection of courses at Mission Hills in China; and the opulence of The Montgomerie in Dubai.
Whatever your travel passion, Nathan has the knowhow and experience to make your holiday plans a hole in one.

If it’s active adventure in the great outdoors that you seek, Russell Pierce is your man. This highly experienced travel consultant has chased fresh powder snow and the thrills of downhill skiing in the ski fields and mountains of Switzerland, Austria, Romania, British Columbia, Colorado, Utah, California, New Zealand and Australia as well as most recently in Hokkaido in Japan.
Skiing is not Russell’s only passion. This action man has also trekked to the summit of Mount Agung in Bali to watch the sunrise over the dormant volcano, and hiked to Borobudur in central Java to gain a firsthand view of the violent eruptions of Mount Merapi. Russell has also climbed the Mayan pyramids of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and the breathtaking Uluru in central Australia. In South America, Russell has tackled the summit of Huana Picchu to see where the glacial peaks meet the legendary Amazon jungle above the ruins of Machu Picchu.
Watersports are also a siren call for this adrenalin junkie. Russell has dived in limestone caves deep in the jungle, gone whitewater rafting in New Zealand and surfed and snorkelled around Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. A more relaxing experience has see him bathe in the turquoise onsens in Kyushu in Japan. Always on the move, Russell has also cycled to ancient ruins in Hue and explored North Vietnam by train, taken helicopter flights over the spectacular Iguazu Falls in Brazil, and gone on game safaris in Botswana and Zimbabwe.
With so many bucket list experiences to choose from, Russell says his most memorable travel moments include skiing in deep powder up to his ribs in Hokkaido, watching a lion kill its prey in Chobe National Park in Botswana, and exploring the rugged coastline of the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
Russell is one of Travel Associate’s most experienced consultants with 24 years of travel industry
experience behind him. Russell's personal passion for adventure and active travel makes him the
ideal person to contact for an out-of-the-ordinary holiday.
