I’ve had a passion for travel from the moment I stepped foot in an airport at a young age, and have since been on a journey to explore the world. In my early career I managed to save up enough money to take a year off work to backpack across Africa, India, China, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Not wanting to return home, I decided to head back to Thailand and Cambodia for a few more months to explore my favourite countries even more.
I love discovering new countries and submerging myself in their culture, local delicacies and soaking up their way of life. I’ve now visited over 58 countries, but Southeast Asia has the biggest place in my heart and it’s where I have my fondest memories. Being able to share my passion and knowledge about Thailand and Cambodia to others is truly my dream job.

Q&A with Suzi
What’s your most vivid travel moment?
I will never forget trekking through the dense jungle in Chiang Mai, North Thailand. Led by a local guide we hiked up mountains, crossed rivers by fallen tree logs, swam by waterfalls, braved white-water rafting, visited an elephant rescue centre, and finally we were rewarded with panoramic views across the mountain range. The highlight for me was staying overnight at a hill tribe village homestay where we got to soak up village life, playing games with the local children and waking up to the sounds of farm animals.
Where would you love to travel next?
Uganda has been on my bucket list for a few years since I missed it on my Africa trip, I'm a huge animal lover and my dream would be to see a Gorilla up close in the wild.
Which book, film, or artwork captures Cambodia the most?
While travelling through Cambodia and learning about the Khmer Rouge I read the book ‘First They Killed My Father’. This harrowing true story written from the perspective of seven-year-old, Loung Ung has stayed with me ever since and it gave me a huge perspective of the shocking history the people of Cambodia have been through. The book has since been made into a film of the same name, directed by Angelina Jolie.
