Grace on the Great Ocean Road, Australia

Grace, Australia & New Zealand Specialist

I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BA in Archaeology and an MA in the Ancient and Classical World. I then joined the cruising world and spent the next 15 months sailing around the Mediterranean, Southeast Asia and Africa operating tours in each destination. After so much time at sea I was ready to plant my feet on solid ground but was definitely not ready to return to the UK. Within a month of leaving the high seas I booked a oneway flight to Australia where I lived and worked for a year before moving on to New Zealand. I spent three months a piece in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney as well as touring the east coast extensively. I then lived on a horse ranch in the north island of New Zealand before hiring a camper van to tour the south of the island. I fell in love with the relaxed nature of Aussie and Kiwi life, their eccentric and extreme wildlife and their ancient aboriginal and Maori culture.

I'll never forget when…

I have been incredibly fortunate in my travels and have had many wonderful experiences but every now and again I still get those moments when I wish time would stand still so I could soak up the magical atmosphere. Most recently this happened while diving on the Great Barrier Reef. I spent four nights aboard a dive boat exploring the wonderfully rich ecosystem and observing the staggering array of marine life here. Getting into the water with the early morning sun and watching the ocean come to life around me was simply unforgettable.
