I've had a passion for travel for as long as I can remember. This stems from many weekends spent at my grandparent's house while growing up, listening to stories of their multiple round-the-world trips. I put on my backpack for the first time after finishing school and set off to visit Australia, Asia, South and Central America, Africa and Canada.
After gaining an MSc from the University of Bath I continued to travel whenever possible and this eventually led to a career at Audley. My passion for the outdoors and wildlife has always drawn me to Canada and since joining Audley I have been able to spend more time exploring the rugged scenery of the Rocky Mountains, the beaches and wildlife of Vancouver Island, and the incredible food in Toronto and Vancouver.
I'll never forget when…
As a lover of all wildlife, the chance to go on a bear-watching excursion in Tofino was a highlight of my trip to Canada. We headed out on a boat with our guide and started scanning the shoreline for black bears. After 30 minutes of eagerly watching and waiting, I was starting to lose hope that we would be able to see them but shortly after I spotted a mother and baby bear come out from the trees and head down to the water. I cannot describe how privileged I felt to be able to observe these incredible creatures in their natural environment.
