After three years working in luxury chalets and hotels in the Alps, Nat came back to the UK in search of a job that would keep her connected to the travel. Her undimmed thirst for mountains meant she found herself looking to Canada, and so decided to join Audley.
Prior to her ski seasons, Nat went to university in Bangor, Wales, and could often be found on Anglesey beaches or Snowdonia hilltops on weekends or between lectures.
Nat travelled with her parents in the USA, and when time between work and university allowed, she spent two months backpacking around Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Europe.
Since joining Audley, she has had the chance to explore the Rockies in Canada, where her highlight was coming across very different wildlife to the Alps in the form of bears and moose.
I'll never forget when…
Often the best memories come from moments that couldn't have been booked or prepared for. During my stay at Echo Valley Ranch, I had the opportunity to go horse riding for the day. The wranglers, Steve and Maggie, were excellent and I had a great ride around the many acres of woodland that surround the ranch. At the end I offered to help take the horses back up the valley where they graze in the evenings. Steve and Maggie were grateful for the help, and asked if I could ride bareback. So the end of my day consisted of rounding up 20 horses and riding bareback through the ranch lands, back up the valley into the sunset.
