Middle East Specialist

I grew up reading stories and myths from all over the world, then caught the travel bug aged 16 on a trip to Italy. I graduated from art school and spent ten years working in the family business. Then my fascination with North Africa led me to return to university to study social anthropology in London, focusing on that region. After working for the civil service my love of travel triumphed and I embarked upon a year long round-the-world adventure.

On returning, I joined the Middle East team, working in Witney, Boston and London, then from home. Morocco is a feast for the senses with its diverse landscapes, time-worn, labyrinthine cities and vibrant cultures, while the interface between ancient and modern Egypt is intriguing. Turkey is vast, and a fascinating melting pot of cultures, and I have recently been able to explore compact Jordan and visit awe-inspiring Petra.

When I'm not working or exploring the world, I enjoy walking and creating artifacts from recycled objects.

We had very high expectations when we embarked on our trip. Our expectations were exceeded.

Linda G. traveled to Morocco for 13 days in October 2015, organized by Brigitte C

From my first conversation with our specialist, Brigitte, we were excited about our Morocco adventure. We shared our interests and abilities with Brigitte and found that our requests were granted, down to the tiniest detail. We have already recommended Audley Travel and Brigitte in particular on social media and in person.

I recommend visiting - Fez, Morocco

Fez is a wonderful, labyrinthine medieval city, less discovered than Marrakesh. It has almost two thousand winding narrow streets and passageways to explore with every twist and turn revealing something new. While there, I've discovered everything from rows of stalls selling wedding clothes, bakeries where you can peer right into the heart of the mudbrick ovens to the exquisite intricate detailing of an ancient mosque or fountain.

I'll never forget when…

Snorkeling in the Red Sea has to be one of my best memories of my time in Egypt. Many of the hotels have 'house reefs' which literally start where the beach ends. I hired a mask, fins and snorkel for a few pounds and as soon as I entered the water, the brilliance of the diverse corals looked like an underwater garden; not visited by butterflies but by shoals of fish in every form and color.
