Countless summers spent on family holidays in Europe ignited my love for travel and exploration. After school, I went to Costa Rica and Nicaragua where I spent time volunteering. From eco-projects in the Costa Rican rainforests to sanitation projects in a remote Nicaraguan village, the experiences and cultures I encountered were captivating.
Soon after graduating from Exeter University, I ventured to Vietnam. I spent a month exploring, and particularly loved the homestays in Sapa and along the Mekong Delta. Most recently, I went to Chile where I drove down the Carretera Austral in northern Patagonia. The varied landscapes, dramatic scenery and friendly people have me dreaming of future adventures to South America already.
Along with my passion for travel, I am also a sailing instructor and have worked in Lemnos, Greece. Now in the Concierge department at Audley, I’m eager to use my knowledge and enthusiasm to help clients plan their own adventures.
I'll never forget when…
Recently, I spent nine days driving down the Carretera Austral in Northern Patagonia. Having never driven abroad before, this was a very scary prospect but in hindsight I shouldn't have worried. Despite being the only highway in Northern Patagonia, this region of Chile is completely off the beaten track and we barely passed anyone. The single-file, gravel roads offered dramatic scenery around every corner, from waterfalls and snow-capped mountains to the open pampas and glaciers. Overcoming my fear, learning new skills and, more importantly, enjoying myself, made driving through Patagonia the most incredible way to experience Chile.
