Watching Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman’s travel documentary Long Way Round while studying at Wolverhampton University inspired me to explore the world. After graduating, I set off, balancing periods of travel in between working in the entertainment industry, customer service, travel and hospitality.
To me, there’s nothing more exciting than planning a new trip; I think I enjoy it just as much as the journey itself. I’ve visited Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Denmark and Germany and have spent a lot of time in the USA, mainly around California and the Southwest. I think what I love most about this area is how you can travel a relevantly short distance and see such varied landscapes. It’s a huge country and I can’t wait to see where my next trip will take me.
I'll never forget when…
Taking a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon felt like an enormous privilege. Seeing the canyon from the air reveals its sheer scale as well as the unbelievable intricacies of its contours. When we first flew over the South Rim it took my breath away; the depth and breadth of the canyon is hard to imagine and seeing the Colorado River snaking through the walls of rock, tiny white water rafters dwarfed in the distance, was particularly memorable. The difference in the landscape on the south and north rims is striking and getting a bird’s eye view of it all was simply unforgettable.
