An Interview With Cathy Fraser

How many years have you been selling travel?

I moved to Halifax just out of High School.  I took my travel course at Maritime Careers business College.  I always knew I wanted to be involved in Travel and Im so thankful I realized it at such a young age.  After completing my course I moved to Toronto and started looking for work as a junior agent.  I was given a wonderful opportunity by a fellow CAPE BRETONER who managed  BEACHES TRAVEL ... I learned alot working there but  I and my husband still longed to be home where all of our family still lived.   After 3 years working at beaches travel, I had the opportunity to move home and work for MARITIME TRAVEL.  Part time in the beginning but I was thrilled to be doing what I loved to do in a place I absolutely adore.  That was October of 1989,  Our mayflower mall location was new and we continued to grow year after year.   I am now still at this location and happy to be the manager and work with a wonderful team that shares my passion for travelling.

What are your hobbies?

My hobbies are spending time with family and friends, home renovations and reading.

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

I enjoy a smaller more intimate resort.  Adult only is great.  The things that are so important to me is a friendly atmosphere, and a beautiful white sand beaches.  I dont look for a resort that has 15 restaurants and 10 bars etc.  I like quiet and intimate.  When we travel we spend our time being together at the beach, swimming and relaxing.  I love to snorkel from the beach and love listening to caribbean ( mostly reggae ) music.  Jamaica is my favorite destination in the caribbean and I will continue to return there.

What are your favorite destinations?

Jamaica for sure and I also love the Bahamas.    I love Cuba and its people, the beaches here are amazing.   I also love Europe and its rich authentic history.   I did love my river cruise from Amsterdam through the Rhine to Luxemburg.  The scenery and history and fantastic service was overwhelming.

What languages do you speak?

English and I can get by a bit with spanish 

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

My husband and I have 2 children. They are grown 29 and 26 but we have travelled together twice to WALT DISNEY WORLD  and to Beaches Jamaica and Breezes Punta Cana.    Our children have a great desire to travel to europe.
