Luke's love of travel began at an early age. His parents believed in spending their resources on experiences instead of things, and young Luke was lucky enough to be along for the ride. These childhood experiences fostered an interest in travel that blossomed into a passion as he grew.
As often as he could he would embark on trips including backpacking across Europe, studying abroad for five months in Barcelona and exploring the Serengeti in Tanzania. After graduating from the University of Vermont, and nipping down to Chile for two weeks, he became a fundraiser in his hometown of Boston. However, when an opportunity at Audley presented itself he jumped at the chance to pursue his love of travel as a career. He has recently returned from a trip to South Africa.
Whether drinking in the culture of Cape Town or driving along the scenic Garden Route, Luke cannot wait to help others enjoy these incredible experiences too.
I'll never forget when…
With a G&T warmly settling in my belly our guide, Theo, asked if we wanted to check out a spot where a cheetah had been spotted earlier in the day. Sure! was our collective response as we bounced along in the late afternoon. Low and behold, about 100 feet off the road lounging on a grassy knoll was not one cheetah, but three, a mom and her two half grown cubs. We inched closer and spent the better part of an hour watching the two cubs, brother and sister, sleepily play fighting as mom dozed.
