Emily's love for travel began early thanks to frequent travels to America and the Caribbean.
After finishing school she fell in love with the French language and decided to embark on a degree in modern languages at the University of Bristol. During her studies she spent a year abroad in Lille and the French Alps, which allowed her to continue exploring Europe as well as also perfect her language skills.
After graduating she was keen to continue her life abroad and moved to Bordeaux to work at the university, teaching English. Here, she made frequent trips to North America, including French-speaking Canada, where she discovered the country's huge diversity and individuality.
Since working for Audley, Emily has had the chance to explore the vast west coast of Canada, Ontario and Québec. Her highlights included kayaking off Vancouver Island and a visit to Great Bear Lodge in the Great Bear Rainforest.
I'll never forget when…
I will always remember a wonderful day spent exploring the wineries of Niagara and learning how the famous Canadian ice wine is produced. We spent the day in the lap of luxury, being picked-up by a driver from our hotel at Niagara Falls and driven to the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. We visited two renowned wineries, Château des Charmes and Inniskillin, tasting a variety of delicious whites and reds, including Inniskillin's ice wine. For wine lovers who are keen to find out more about different wine regions from around the world, I would absolutely recommend these visits.
