I have always been an inquisitive individual and from a young age loved seeing new places and experiencing new things. My passion for travel first started several years ago when I visited family in Melbourne and toured the east coast of Australia for six weeks while on my summer break from university. I absolutely fell in love with this side of the world and soon after graduating I began my travels with a visit to Southeast Asia and New Zealand, before returning to Australia where I lived in Sydney and Cairns for a year.
I spent my two months in New Zealand discovering both islands and was immediately enchanted by the culture, people and landscape. From hiking Franz Josef Glacier to skydiving over Lake Taupo and hesitantly doing the Nevis Swing in Queenstown, I was smitten and am now delighted to share this passion to help others plan their trips.
Since joining Audley I have had the pleasure of re-visiting New Zealand again, as well as the stunning Cook Islands — giving me that first-hand knowledge. In doing so I have formed great relationships with individuals in these countries in order to help me make your Audley trip an unforgettable one.
I'll never forget when…
The coastal town of Kaikoura on New Zealand’s South Island is home to an astonishing amount of marine life. I was lucky enough to go whale watching in an eight-seater plane which is a great way to see the landscape from a new perspective and observe whales and dolphins. During the flight, we saw hundreds of dolphins and I was even lucky enough to spot a few blue whales. We followed the whales for a while with pure amazement on everyone’s faces as we watched these gracious animals glide through the ocean. It was an experience I will never forget.
