Tay, New Zealand Specialist
I grasped the opportunity to travel at the age of 18. I soon discovered a passion for adventure which led me to explore many parts of the world. Having spent time in the Middle East, Asia and Australasia during my travels, I worked as a tour guide in several capacities, including working as a PADI Divemaster and an activity leader for several outdoor expedition companies. I have an affinitive bond with New Zealand though, having spent time living there and subsequently returning to visit my family. My enthusiasm for the great outdoors ultimately lead me to complete a degree in outdoor studies which I achieved with first class honours, winning awards along the way. I subsequently worked as a marine environmental consultant alongside the Omani government, before ultimately opting to maximise my experience and love of travel to tailor-make experiences at Audley.

I'll never forget when…
When I think of New Zealand, I immediately think of adventures and striking landscapes. I combined both in one day when I went heli-hiking and jetboating along the Makarora River. The adrenaline-fuelled helicopter journey, narrowly passing over the knife-edged mountains, put into perspective the sheer wonder of the natural surroundings. After being dropped off, I enjoyed an undulating hike along the riverbank, taking in the steely-blue water running alongside me and the silent, ice-capped mountains which surrounded me. At the end of the track, I hopped aboard a jetboat for another dose of adrenaline to finish off what was an incredible day.
