  2. Refine your choice from our ideas

    After your conversation, your specialist will send you an assortment of brochures and example itineraries to give you inspiration for where to travel and what your trip could involve.

  3. Put you in touch with a destination expert

    Once you have fixed on where you want to go, we’ll put you into the hands of a specialist who focuses on your chosen destination. Already briefed on your preferences, he or she will create your bespoke trip, drawing from extensive first-hand experience.

I have always had a huge passion for exploring the world and this began during my education when studying geography as well as travel and tourism. Unfortunately, like many of us, my travelling plans were interrupted due to Covid-19. However, I have been lucky enough to explore many places around Europe, such as Rome, Barcelona, Mykonos, Amsterdam, Budapest, Sorrento, Paris, Belgium, Cyprus, Turkey and many more. I have recently spent my summer exploring various parts of Italy, including Milan, Lake Como, Lake Garda, Venice, Rome, Verona, Positano, Sorrento and Naples… it is safe to say I fell in love with this beautiful country. From taking a tour of the colosseum and pasta cooking classes in Rome to boat tripping around the Amalfi Coast, this was certainly a fun-filled trip full of different kinds of experiences. Planning trips is something I am constantly dreaming into the future about. Being part of the Global Travel Team allows me to express my love for travel and share my experiences.

I first caught the travel bug from my family, who have taught me the value of visiting and learning from new places and cultures. As a result, I’ve always had travelling at the forefront of my mind and have tried to fit it around my lifestyle and work. I studied abroad in South Korea at Yonsei University in 2023, where I developed my Korean language skills. I’ve a passion for learning new languages, and would love to enrol in more foreign language schools in the future. When travelling, I generally prefer city breaks. From the modern metropolis of Singapore to the bustling old streets of Hanoi, you’ll often find me searching for the most authentic local cuisine. I've also explored my fair share of Mother Nature, from the white bays of the Whitsunday Islands in Australia to the domineering mountains of Whistler in Canada.

There has always been that part of me that has had a passion for travel ever since I was young. I can’t remember a year in my life where I haven’t been to Europe; it feels like I’m returning home every time I visit, especially Greece. In 2015 I visited Peru. That trip is potentially why I am where I am today. I enjoyed meeting with the locals, immersing myself in the culture, learning about the different ways of life and enjoying local delicacies. When I returned home I was about to start secondary school and I knew from that point I wanted to study travel and tourism for my GCSE’s. This made me realise I could have a career in travel. I then embarked on a two-year college programme devoted to deepening my knowledge in this field, an endeavour that I adore wholeheartedly.

Travelling has been a life-long passion of mine. Ever since I planned a family trip around the world at the age of 15, I’ve been hooked. Whether it’s island hopping in the Caribbean, seeing the northern lights at the Polar Circle, going river rafting in Costa Rica, watching the penguins parade at sunset at Phillip Island, or staying at an old monastery with its own vineyard in Sicily, I love going to unique places and creating lasting memories for both myself and others. I have three children and for the past ten years we’ve explored Australia, USA, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Europe together. One of our best adventures was when we spent seven weeks travelling in New England, Florida, the Caribbean, and Bahamas together. Originally, I was born in Denmark and studied in Copenhagen and Uppsala in Sweden. Before joining Audley, I worked for more than ten years in marketing.

While studying for a BSc in Environmental Biology, I became absolutely fascinated by rainforest conservation and decided to apply for a 3-month volunteer programme in remote Indonesian Borneo. While there, I helped with the programme’s conservation efforts and carried out research for my dissertation. My time spent here was transformative; being immersed in a culture and way of life so different to my own, and being surrounded by Borneo’s wildlife on a daily basis was a truly captivating experience. This led me to spend many of my subsequent years living overseas in Southeast Asia and Australia, where I decided to pursue a career in travel. After over a decade in the industry, I have been very fortunate to see many corners of the globe, and love nothing more than sharing my passion for travel with Audley clients and helping them find the perfect destination for their next adventure.

Travelling has always been a huge part of my life. My mum would take every opportunity to take us all away as a family, so luckily, exploring new places has been the norm for me since I was small. After graduating from university, I eagerly packed my bags to embark on my year-long travels to Australia, New Zealand and parts of Southeast Asia. I quickly discovered that I am happiest when travelling and when that isn't possible, talking about travel at work. Working in the Global Travel Team enables me to do just that, by helping clients decide where they should explore next based on their own interests. Since taking my gap year, I have explored many other places such as Sri Lanka, South Africa, the USA and Italy, enabling me to speak generally and advise on many different wonderful parts of the world with clients at Audley.

From the moment I set out on an overland expedition from the UK to Tanzania in 1991, I decided to make travel my life’s passion. On return, I left my career in the City and moved to Athens where I worked in the head office of a major tour operator working throughout Greece and the islands with occasional assignments to Portugal and Kenya and holidays in Egypt and Sri Lanka. I returned to the UK in 1995 and continued to explore with family and friends: on safari in southern Africa, cultural excursions in Malaysia and adventures across the USA and Canada. In 1998 my travel soul settled on Australia and New Zealand and my enthusiasm for the region eventually led me to Audley Travel where I specialised in the South Pacific region for 18 years. I was excited, recently, to join the Global Travel Team and look forward to helping our clients explore the world as I have been privileged to do.

I grew up in South Africa and developed a love of the country as a child. While living in Johannesburg and enjoying family holidays in Kruger National Park, Cape Town, Mpumalanga and many more of South Africa’s incredible places, I soon learned that it really is a world in one country. We later left South Africa but returned frequently, and I chose to return during my year out. I was based on a reserve working with anti-poaching projects, local communities and learning about the wildlife. It is where my passion for travel and adventure was cemented and during that year that I also visited Paris, Thailand and Bali. Once I began working, I saved to explore the world further taking every opportunity to travel and visiting everywhere from Iceland to Sri Lanka, Turkey and the Philippines as well as return visits to some of my most treasured spots.

I caught the travel bug after interrailing across Europe before university, and since then I’ve continued to travel whenever possible. After graduating, I embarked on a round-the-world trip which included trekking through tribal villages in Northern Thailand, climbing the Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand and learning to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. On returning to the UK, I began working for an international publisher, which enabled me to travel extensively throughout Europe and Southeast Asia. I’ve always been passionate about the natural world, and on all my travels I like to see as much wildlife as I can and experience different habitats alongside the more cultural elements. My love of wildlife led me to begin working for a wildlife tour specialist, then eventually beginning my career at Audley almost ten years ago. Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to have explored some far-flung corners of the globe, including most of Southeast Asia, India, Namibia, and Peru. These trips have brought unforgettable memories and experiences that I now hope to share with others. For seven years I worked within the Southeast Asia team as an Indochina, Malaysia, and Borneo specialist. Now in the Global Travel Team, I'm excited to talk about the whole world while helping Audley clients find the perfect destination for their next adventure.
