Born and raised in a quiet Massachusetts suburb, Andea knew she wanted to get out and see the world from a young age. After her first year at Boston University, Andea spent a summer in Peru studying, volunteering, and climbing Machu Picchu. It was there that her love of learning new cultures and languages was born, and she went on to study abroad in both Madrid and London. Upon graduating, Andea moved to London to get her Master's degree from LSE and then moved back to Madrid for two years to teach English.
In the past few years Andea has managed to travel to over 30 countries on four continents, but the charm and beauty of the UK and Ireland keep calling her back.
When she's not exploring the world, Andea loves photography, playing basketball, and reading (particularly the Outlander series, which only makes her want to return to Scotland even more).
Amazing doesn't even begin to express what an incredible experience this trip has been. Genius would come close.
Living out my dream since childhood of walking on the ground my maternal grandparents walked on finally happened. Without Andea and Audley Travel's great advice and helpful suggestions it might not have turned out to be the emotional journey of a lifetime that it was. Amazing doesn't even begin to express what an incredible experience this trip has been. Genius would come close. Thank you Andea.
I'll never forget when…
My favorite experience was visiting the Cairngorms National Park and Rothiemurchus Estate in Scotland. The Cairngorms National Park embodies that rugged and wild landscape most visitors imagine when they think of Scotland, and Rothiemurchus gives them a chance to get out and explore it.
The afternoon kicked off with a private Land Rover tour of the estate, made entirely unique with a delicious picnic in the middle of an incredible scenic vista. I then got to hand-feed deer — which is much more fun than it may sound. Finally, I had a private fly fishing lesson with a local ghillie. Fly fishing was something I'd never thought I would enjoy so much, but thanks to the great instructors and stunning scenery, I can't wait to get back out on the lake.
