Welcome to Bucket List Travel, your local travel brokers in Whangaparaoa. I’m Michelle and I believe that we spend too long dreaming about holidays that go onto our bucket list.

Travel is my passion and whether you are 8 or 80, everyone has places in the world they want to travel to.

I have a bucket list, as most people do, and yes, life is short and the world is large, so we should make the time to tick these places off our list.

I love my job; I liken it to working in a candy store. Every day I get excited about where people want to go, and I love creating that dream for them so that it can become a reality.

Whether it is a flight to Sydney, flop and drop at a tropical island or a round-the-world holiday, I can arrange them all. At Bucket List Travel I strive to make those holiday dreams a reality!  I also handle any corporate travel and group travel!

Whether you’re travelling for leisure or business, a family vacation, the holiday of a lifetime or travelling alone it’s never been more important to use a travel advisor.

So, if you’re looking for someone who can offer you peace of mind and willing to go the extra mile give me a call today.

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. “

Kia Ora, Kia Orana, Ia Orana, Bula, Bonjour, Hola, Ciao and Gidday Mate.

Life in the travel industry started after university, followed by the traditional OE, where I was lucky enough to live in Canada, the United Kingdom and travel extensively throughout Europe and the Middle East. 

Since finding a husband and having four children, the Pacific Islands and cruising have been a favourite for our family. 

Creating memories and sharing experiences with friends and family and new friends is one thing you will always keep. 

So get your bucket list ready for ticking and remember: Life is like a box of chocolates – and you should taste them in every country.



My travel career started when I took a family holiday in a motorhome at 15 years old… Australia was amazing and I was hooked.

Since then, I’ve travelled through NZ, Australia, USA, UK & Europe and explored Central & Southern Africa in depth.

I love creating holidays with complicated itineraries, escorted tours and sporting packages. Personally, I enjoy alternative holidays like glamping safaris, canoeing adventures, slow e-bike trips, and exploring villages off-the-beaten-track.

My most memorable trip was to the Serengeti in Tanzania, where I camped under the stars and listened to the roar of the lions into the night, then viewed the animal migration from a hot air balloon … ahhh, just magical!

If you have destinations you’d like to see, please give me a call… I’ll help you create your own magical memories.
