Nick never remembers why he chose Delhi as the first stop on a Round-the-World ticket in 2006, but after stepping off that flight one March morning he was hooked. Ten weeks' later he left monsoonal Mumbai before moving on.
Twelve years in the oil industry gave Nick the chance to work and explore worldwide. Travelling from St Petersburg to Hong Kong by train (having promised a friend he'd visit). Sunrise from Kilimanjaro and Machu Picchu; playing Indiana Jones in Jordan; and swimming with iguanas in the Galapagos.
Prior to joining Audley, Nick studied Mandarin for eight months in Shanghai. But it's the Subcontinent that holds the main draw. Highlights include colourful Rajasthan's palaces and countryside, mountainous Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh, Hampi in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu's temples and Trekking to Everest Base Camp.
Back home, Nick enjoys photography, live comedy, trying to learn to play the guitar and cooking.
I'll never forget when…
Trying new food when travelling is always important for me, but often it's a bit hit and miss knowing what to try and where. I have been to Delhi numerous times, but recently tried our Delhi night food walk. Run by a foodie who aims to eat somewhere different each day, I was expecting to try the huge array of food (save space for the butter chicken), but didn't expect to learn so much about the Old Delhi area in the process.
