HOLLIE-RAE BRADER EDITOR, ASPIRE


Before I started in my role as Aspire editor I headed to South America to discover the sights and sounds of Brazil and Argentina. I loved both but Argentina was particularly special as it was impossible not to be won over by the locals’ passion – for their culture, history, heritage, food, wine . . . you get the idea. That passion resonated with me because the same mantra exists in the travel sector. The industry is full of people who love learning about new places and sending customers on dream trips. And it’s that passion which also shines through each year at the Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards where the best in the business are recognised. This year the Aspire Awards will honour the agents who go above and beyond for their customers and I’m looking forward to receiving your entries to the four categories, sponsored by Celebrity Cruises. In this issue you can read all about my South American escapades, plus features on South Africa and travelling with babies. I hope the whole edition fuels your passion for offering your clients nothing but the best.
