Emma, Southeast Asia Specialist

With a love of the natural world, I always knew I wanted to travel, but I officially caught the bug when I went on a six-month backpacking trip to Australia and Southeast Asia during a year out from my studies.

I loved learning all about new cultures, seeing some of the ancient wonders of the world, and observing the amazing wildlife. I got my scuba qualification and discovered a whole new world beneath the sea, which has become a theme for a lot of my travels since.

I’ve now been back to Southeast Asia several times to explore as many countries as possible. Vietnam stands out as one of the most impressive as I’ve had some of my most memorable experiences there. The top one was caving in Phong Nha. This was a two-day expedition which took me trekking through the jungle to three caves hidden deep within the national park.

I'll never forget when…

I love exploring natural wonders, but seeing inside some of the biggest, unexplored caves in the world during my time in Vietnam was a highlight of all my travels. The trek through the jungle was the beginning of the adventure, and incredible all on its own, but the three caves just blew me away. When I finally got inside, our torches brought the darkness to life and the rock formations were out of this world. As the area is protected, the caves remain largely untouched so even sand sits in patterns where water left it so long ago.
