An Interview With Phyllis Barter

How many years have you been selling travel?

My first trip was in 1974 - when I travelled to the Ivory Coast in West Africa, where I lived for 6 months with an exchange program for Canada World Youth. This started in me the "TRAVEL BUG"  and upon my return to Canada, I began working as a Travel Agent. That was 1975 - and I have been working in the travel business and travelling the world ever since!

What are your hobbies?

I like reading, shopping, musicals, theatre, singing (I have been in a few choirs),my new and very enjoyable hobby is Paper Crafting - cards, journals ... I love to recycle and create something new.

What type of resort activities do you favor? ie water sports, lounging by the pool, etc?

I like all resorts - really - I do!  When I am on vacation - I love to relax and read - but I most enjoy visiting the country that I am visiting - I like to see and do and learn as much as possible.

What are your favorite destinations?

I alway enjoy wherever I have been - but I think my favorite trips have been the Mediterranean Cruise and the trip to China - awesome! Add to that the African Safari ... amazing!

What languages do you speak?

English and a bit of French (a bit rusty - but in a pinch)

Do you have a family? and if so what type of family travel have you done?

Family trips we have done - Barbados (all Inclusive); Cuba (all inclusive) and Walt Disney World - Even though my children have grown, we still travel together from time to time all over the world.
