Molly has experienced travel from a young age and she lived abroad while growing up, in particular in the USA. Moving around so regularly sparked her love of exploring, and she has visited a range of places in the States, most memorably the Grand Canyon, the Carolinas and New York State.
Molly’s school studies focused on Latin, history and English literature. These subjects sparked an early passion for Italy, and it was here Molly first visited independently, exploring the Roman cities and ruins that she’d learned about.
At university, she concentrated on American and European literature, spending a year at the University of Connecticut, and ticking another state off her list. Upon graduating, Molly continued to travel before working briefly in publishing, property and private healthcare. It wasn't long before her frequent trips and travels abroad drew her back to her love for travel, and she made the decision to join Audley as a specialist for trips to the USA and, most recently, Italy.
I'll never forget when…
I was driven around Lake Como on a motorbike. It was an exhilarating way to see the lake and something I hadn't experienced before. After a few days in the region, it was refreshing to see it in a completely new way.
We had the whole day to wind along the lakeside roads with our local guide, stopping off to visit some of the smaller towns. We could see how our proximity to the Swiss border touched upon the changing architecture in each of the villages. The tour was topped off by visiting an off-the-beaten track farm and restaurant for the most delicious lunch.
