Meet Our Team

Joyce Blom

International Consultant/ Owner

My travel career commenced in Christchurch New Zealand, in 1979, working in retail and wholesale offices. The last 25 years I have worked as an international consultant in various Sydney agencies of which the last 18 years has been as an equal partner in Travel Menai Metro. Even though I have over 30 years of travel experience I still get excited and love to plan and create great trips for my clients whether it’s a cruise, guided touring, independent itineraries for families or couples. Travel destinations visited recently include Scandinavia and South America. I have also holidayed to various Pacific Islands, Asia, USA, Canada, Europe, Sabah, Mexico, India, and Ireland. My most recent cruise was cruising Vikings Star from Stockholm to Bergen. For a more relaxed cruise experience I would highly recommend the Star Clipper cruises having sailed around the Tahitian island and the Mediterranean.
