Sophie's passion for travel and wildlife started from a very young age from sailing in the Mediterranean, scuba diving Red Sea reefs and trekking in the jungles of Southeast Asia. After her degree in Psychology, Sophie was given the opportunity, to teach English and live alongside tribal villages in Rajasthan.
With the travel bug firmly embedded she embarked on her dream around the world expedition, which lead to extensive overland travel throughout India, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, Australasia, Africa and South America. Since joining Audley, Sophie has returned to the national parks of Central India in search of the elusive tiger, Rajasthan exploring hidden forts and the rural villages that so captivated her on her first trip to India, south India and the western Foothiils. Sophie's passion for India is almost unrivalled.
I'll never forget when…
The narrow streets of Old Delhi are awash with colour and life, a melting pot of communities and cultures. The smell of freshly cooked samosas and incense fill the air, a cow passes you by as you dodge a bicycle on one side and a rickshaw on the other. Pink, yellow, green, blue and red powder dye is piled high next to bangles that sparkle and chillies drying in the afternoon sun.
