Born in Oxford, Cara moved away to the coast to attend Plymouth University where she received her Master's degree in History. Having lived and worked in various parts of the UK and Europe, she returned to the Oxfordshire countryside to work at Audley.
Constantly on the lookout for new travel experiences, Cara likes to combine her passion with adventure and background in history with two other obsessions — train travel and wine. Currently studying for her WSET Level 3 qualification, her best wine countries are South Africa and Italy. As both places boast some very scenic train journeys, they are top of her list for holiday planning.
I'll never forget when…
My first experience of Venice was on an evening tour of the bacari (bars), where I sampled local wines and cicchetti — small, delicious snacks. It’s easy to get lost in the winding alleys of the city, and this particular evening I didn't have to think about the route I was taking, as my guide knew the area. It was a relaxing way to see the various districts and try some different food. As it was the first night, I could return to my preferred bars later in my stay.
