About Carina

Carina’s interest in travel was sparked over 25 years ago as an archaeology student at Sydney University.  She was fascinated with ancient civilisations and was determined to travel to discover them first hand!  Carina decided a job in travel would be the perfect way to establish a career while indulging her desire to explore the world.

Carina joined Mary Rossi Travel in 1995 and recently returned after taking some time out to raise her family.  Customising itineraries that uncover more than just the tourist sights is what she loves.  Plus re-living her client’s experiences when they return from their travels!

Carina has developed a real passion for Italy followed closely by Egypt and Jordan.  Her most memorable travel moment though occurred while staying at Mala Mala Game Reserve in South Africa. Seeing the big 5 in my three night stay was one of her life’s truly amazing experiences and she thinks it’s definitely one for everyone’s bucket list.

Where to next?  Carina would really love to return to Italy – she thinks it’s got a real knack of capturing your heart!

I was amazed with Carina’s caring approach in every step of our holiday planning. Everything from the moment we took off until we landed back home was organised for us which made our holiday very enjoyable and totally care free. I’ve never had such a relaxing getaway and would certainly use her services again. Thank you Carina :))

Carina was a joy to work with. All my enquires were responded to promptly either by telephone or email. The organisation of our trip which also included a 4 day extension to Rome worked out beautifully without any hiccups. Communication between Carina and Kate from the Mary Rossi Travel team during the whole process of planning, organising and booking our trip was just fantastic. Thank you Ladies for a wonderful holiday.

Carina is an excellent trip planner and executor. She goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure that every aspect of the trip is planned and is extremely competent and knowledgeable. During this last trip in Europe when we had problems with cancelled flights Carina immediately found alternatives arriving us at our destination with a minimum of fuss. Her choice of Hotels exceeded our expectations , and always placed us in a style of Hotel which matched our personal style. Carina has been planning and executing trips for us to the UK , Europe and Japan and i highly recommend her services .

“Carina, Just letting you know we’re back and had a wonderful time. Thank you for all your work in the organisation of the trip.  Everything went smoothly, and we loved the upgrade at Sabi Sabi as well as the wine in our room. What a lovely lodge that is!  We’ll be in touch soon, as our next cruise draws closer. Thanks again.”
