My passion for travel started after a family Christmas holiday to New York, Fiji and Sydney. A few years later I embarked on a year-long trip through Africa, Australasia and Southeast Asia. Highlights included spending a month volunteering in a local community in Mombasa, sky diving in New Zealand and scuba diving with sharks in Fiji.
I fell in love with Australia and after four months back in the UK I moved to Sydney for a year to work and travel. Before coming to Audley I was an international event manager which allowed me to travel throughout Europe and America.
I first went to Sri Lanka on a holiday with a friend and I was blown away by the culture, history, food and people. I recently returned to Sri Lanka with Audley and got to revisit some of the country's most memorable places as well as discovering exciting new destinations.
I'll never forget when…
Throughout my trip to Sri Lankan I was very eager to see a leopard. I was driving through Wilpattu National Park and just in front of our truck not one, but two leopards walked out into the middle of the road. They stayed in front of us for almost an hour drinking from puddles, climbing trees and grooming each other. We couldn’t believe it. It was such a surprise sighting and the leopards seemed so unaware of us, just going about their business in their natural environment. It was humbling to see such beautiful creatures right in front of me.
