My passion for travel was sparked at a young age when I took my first trip to Canada on a snowy Christmas at the age of two. Years later, my fascination with this vast and beautiful country continued. After subsequent visits attending the Grand Prix, I finally decided to take a leap and spend a year living in Toronto, a vast, bustling city full of culture and life; I even survived the chilly winter! I then headed out west venturing from the Rockies through to Vancouver. The Rocky Mountains left me in awe and the many sightings of bears and moose stand out as a highlight of my Canadian experience.
Since I began working for Audley, I’ve explored the Maritimes regions, a part of Canada very different to the west, but full of charm. Here I got to experience the Arcadian French culture and drive the scenic Cabot Trail around Nova Scotia.
I'll never forget when…
While staying in the small town of Ingonish along the Cabot Trail, we were unfortunate enough to find a porpoise that had beached herself along the coast. Thankfully a team of residents from a nearby property were on hand to help and after several nail-biting hours working together, we managed to safely get her back into the ocean. There is no way to describe the overwhelming euphoria of managing to see this gentle creature, far out in the distance swimming off to safety. It really highlighted the majesty of nature and how important the sea life is to the local population.
