I was born in the Middle East and have lived in several different countries growing up. As a result, I have always loved travel and discovering other cultures.
I studied languages and business at Birmingham University, and then spent a year studying abroad which piqued my interest for further travels. I started my journey close to home and inter-railed around Europe, before spending a year exploring Latin America, Australia and India. After this I joined Audley and have since returned to Latin America, being lucky enough to specialise in my favourite countries: Brazil, Peru, Costa Rica, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.
Some particular travel memories include trekking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, witnessing the magnificent Iguaçu Falls up-close, playing football with locals by Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica, swimming with sealions in the Galapagos, and seeing a jaguar gnaw on a carcass in the Brazilian Pantanal.
I'll never forget when…
I have now seen the Iguacu Falls twice from both Brazil and Argentina; it was just as breath-taking the second time round.
Not only do you get see the stunning scenery of surrounding mountains, but you also have panoramic views of the falls and rivers. It was such an energetic sensation walking above the waterfalls, being hit by the spray and then reaching the Devil's Throat, where I was absolutely soaked through from the massive showers of water shooting up to the viewing platform.
