Emily, UK, Ireland & France Specialist
Since her first family visit to the Cotswolds in 2007, Emily has continually trotted the globe, spending extended time studying in Europe and Australia. In 2014 she lived in London while studying the historic and contemporary leadership throughout the UK. And, while she loves the hustle and bustle of a city; her favorite place across the pond is Blenheim Palace, where she would be perfectly content sipping tea on the terrace over the lavish gardens.
But despite her English heritage, a big part of Emily’s heart resides in France, and as a self-proclaimed foodie, it’s not hard to see why. From sipping wine in Bordeaux, to soaking in the history at the Normandy beaches, to pastry making in Paris, she loves the balance of activities and themes that only France can offer. Emily’s enthusiasm for the tranquil countryside of Oxfordshire, the macarons of Paris and the rugged hikes of Connemara in Ireland is infectious. She’s eager to share her travel expertise for these equally beautiful but distinctly different countries of Europe.
When she's not gallivanting around the world, Emily exudes her boundless energy running along the Charles River, hitting hard at Title Boxing, and grabbing coffee and brunch with friends.
I'll never forget when…
After spending time in the busy city of Edinburgh, I headed north to the Highlands to enjoy a scenic cycling tour taking in what I believe to be Scotland's best landscape. It was the perfect storm: clear sunny skies, wind in my hair, and far-ranging views of the mountains and lake, as I cycled the 14.5 km (9 mile) cycle path along Loch Lomond in Scotland. The journey was leisurely, yet adventurous. It was quite literally a breath of fresh air and one of my favorite travel experiences.
