Rebecca had always had a passion for other cultures, languages and food but her enthusiasm for travel was sparked during a school trip to Kenya during her teenage years.
After graduating with a history degree, she decided to head to Nepal for a long term volunteer placement. Here, Rebecca fell in love with Asia. On her return, she began working for a leading volunteer organisation as a Placement Manager, working with charities around the world in Peru, Belize, Nepal, Cambodia and Thailand.
Rebecca joined Audley in 2016 and with her passion for wildlife and conservation, as well as history and culture, Borneo and Malaysia were an ideal fit. She has visited Borneo and Malaysia extensively, exploring the region's most popular and off the beaten track destinations.
I'll never forget when…
After an amazing afternoon viewing wildlife in the Kinabatangan River, including proboscis monkeys and a wild orangutan, we were washed out by a sudden rain shower and had to abandon the trip. We were so sad as a night cruise had been planned. However, by late evening the rain suddenly stopped and our guide surprised us by saying we could go back out on the river; it was well worth it. In the post-storm humidity, the dark sky slowly cleared to reveal the stars - and best of all - the fireflies.
