Sean, Southeast Asia Specialist

An interest in ancient history and an enjoyment of sweeping landscapes first took me to Asia on a gap year in 2011, where I taught English in the compound of a monastery outside of Siem Reap. Learning about local religious tradition against the backdrop of the Angkorian temples was an enviable introduction to the complexity of Asia and it provided a good grounding as I explored the region extensively.

Although studying world religions at university saw extended trips through Germany, Peru and India, after graduation I returned to Southeast Asia on a eye opening trip to Indonesia. The combination of sprawling ruins, thriving cultures and sublime mountain sunsets reinvigorated a passion for the region and set me off on a career in travel.

Since joining Audley I’ve taken trips in Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam and revisited the majestic temples of Siem Reap.

I'll never forget when…

Watching the sun set on the Komodo Islands in Indonesia from a drifting boat, I was treated to an a view of thousands of flying foxes passing overhead. The vast natural migration occurs nightly when the bats leave their island home to go in search of fruit, nectar and blossoms. They are the largest bats in the world and can travel up to 60km (40 miles) in search of food. Here, they swoop and flutter overhead in a sublime display, which, set against the backdrop of a vivid setting sun, added immensely to the feeling of awe.
