Robert, Japan specialist
Robert has always had a passion for travel and an immense interest in other cultures. He followed that interest to the College of Charleston in South Carolina where he studied Anthology and Religious Studies. After graduation Robert set off or Asia in hopes to put his studies to practice. After a couple years in South East Asia he moved on to Tokyo, Japan and immediately fell in love with the country. He particularly loves the cuisine and the Japanese countryside- his oasis from the world's biggest and busiest city. After his year in Japan he decided to join Audley as a Japan Specialist so that he can help as many people experience Japan as possible. When he is not planning his next great adventure Robert likes to cook Thai and Japanese food, watch films, and get outdoors as much as possible.
I'll never forget when…
I love the outdoors which is why my most memorable experience from my last trip was walking along the Nakasendo Highway. This 330 mile ancient highway connects Kyoto with Tokyo and it lined with waterfalls, cedars, and rice fields. I spent a sunny February afternoon alone on the trail meandering from Magome to Tsumago. It was such a peaceful experience and felt great to breathe the fresh mountain air after a couple of nights in Tokyo.
