Heather, India & Sri Lanka Specialist

During her childhood, Heather had always been encouraged by her parents to travel and interact with different cultures via exchange programmes and family trips. A school programme to Hiroshima, Japan, proved to be a pivotal point in igniting her passion for learning about different cultures and perspectives. It motivated her to study psychology at university, with the aim to further understand the implications of culture on behaviour.

After university she embarked on a unique opportunity in Sri Lanka, where she could fully immerse herself in a culture she had always wanted to explore. Living in a local Sri Lankan home, she lived like a local and participated in a variety of local community projects. An 8 week trip eventually turned into an incredible year in which she learnt a huge amount about this vibrant and diverse country.

From Sri Lanka she crossed the Palk Strait into Tamil Nadu, from where she explored South India — and more recently, China; a truly diverse destination, rich in history and excitement for the future.

I'll never forget when…

The most memorable experience of my recent trip was the evening I spent at Kulu's Safari Tents in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka. We went for a drive around the lake, and enjoyed a cold beverage watching the sunset. We then spent half an hour spotting the glistening eyes of the crocodiles in the lake before returning to the camp for a feast of delicious home cooked food under the starry Milky Way. A wonderful escape that really brought me back to nature.
