Sarah's passion for travel was ignited after spending a university summer break backpacking around Australia. After graduating in psychology, she notched up several thousand miles, covering four continents.
After spending two seasons skiing in Europe, she embarked on a two-year overseas experience where she was lucky enough to travel Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. She gained some unique experiences, ranging from volunteering in a Balinese school to swimming with turtles on the Great Barrier Reef, and spending a winter season on the slopes in New Zealand. It was on this trip that she decided she was keen to pass on her passion and knowledge of world travel to others.
Sarah began her career at Audley as a New Zealand specialist, creating tailor-made itineraries to inspire clients about her favourite country. She then made the move to the Concierge team, where she is able to use her knowledge and vast experience to advise clients about all the destinations that Audley covers.
I'll never forget when…
Towards the end of my overseas experience I volunteered teaching English at a primary school in Bali, Indonesia. I was given the freedom to devise my own lesson plans and enjoyed educating the children in a new topic each day. The tables turned everyday as the children would spend time teaching me more of the Indonesian language. I developed a very strong bond with my class which made the experience even more rewarding. Living in a rural Balinese community where very little English was spoken and traditional customs where adhered to was an invaluable experience and memory from my travels.
