I have always loved travel and first discovered India when I volunteered in Faridabad for three months in 2012. Since then I've explored north India extensively and particularly love Jodhpur, Amritsar, Jaipur, Chanoud, Varanasai and Dharamsala, where I attended a lecture given by the Dalai Lama. My luckiest accomplishment was going on a tiger safari in Ranthambore National Park and spotting a leopard instead.
I'm delighted to have joined Audley as a Sri Lanka specialist after recently spending time exploring the island, tracking wildlife in Wilpattu National Park, seeing the ancient sights of the Cultural Triangle, and exploring the lush plantations in the tea country.
Along with trips to India previous adventures have included volunteering stints in East Africa, a trek to Everest Base Camp, a few years living on Australia's eastern coast, and a business degree with French. I am a self-confessed adrenaline junkie and love the excitement and exhilaration when a trip finally comes together.
I'll never forget when…
During a visit to the rural village of Chanoud in Rajasthan I stayed in a converted palace which had housed 13 generations of the same family over the course of hundreds of years. One evening I opted to join a member of the family for a drive out to the nearby salt lake in an old, open-top jeep. We were having tea at the lake side and chatting about the landscape when a flock of flamingos swooped down just in time for the sunset behind the mountains. It was the perfect addition to an already idyllic scene.
