My family have always loved to travel and as I grew up it became very apparent that the wanderlust had definitely taken its hold on me too.
My adventures have taken me across the globe, from skiing and hiking the mountains of Canada, the USA and Europe to swimming in the oceans of Thailand and the Caribbean and many places in between.
However, when I discovered the Indian subcontinent I was blown away. During my numerous trips to India and Sri Lanka I discovered everything I could about the people, the culture, the food and the traditions. I was smitten.
When the opportunity arose to work at Audley as a regional specialist for these countries it was a dream come true. Now I get to share my love and appreciation of India and Sri Lanka with others, and use my insider knowledge to create tailor-made itineraries and memorable experiences.
I'll never forget when…
I was in Jaipur in January and spent the day discovering all the nooks and crannies of the Amber Fort before returning to my haveli at dusk. It happened to be the kite-flying festival, Sankranti, and I went up to the roof terrace to watch as kites filled the sky. As the sun started to set and the sky turned a milky pastel, the kites were replaced by endless Chinese lanterns. It was enthralling, and then, the fireworks began and continued for hours. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life; one that brought tears to my eyes.
