Having lived and travelled in Asia for a number of years whilst growing up, a passion for travelling and understanding different cultures was instilled in Sophie from a young age.
Before studying Art History at university, she returned to Asia for six months to explore the countries that she had fallen in love with years beforehand, including India, Nepal and Indochina. With her parents now residing in Nepal, the Indian Subcontinent is a place that she holds very close to her heart.
She wanted to share her passion and to help others to discover the diversity and vibrancy of the places she has grown so fond of. Since joining Audley Sophie has travelled more extensively to Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan, enjoying cooking lessons from locals, wildlife safaris and walks through the tea plantations.
I'll never forget when…
My most memorable experience has got to be my time in Ranthambore National Park. Resisting temptation to get my hopes up, I embarked on my first game drive of the day and after an hour of lots of peacocks, deer, wild boar and monkeys — there she was, only 20 feet away from me, a beautiful tigress serenely making her way along a dried out river bed.
