Having grown up in west London, I spent much of my childhood holidaying across Europe. At the age of 17 I ventured on my first solo, long-haul trip to Mexico, where I got to travel all over the country. I enjoyed the culture, food and beaches and was astonished by just how vastly different a country could be.
After spending six months living in America, and then venturing through Africa, I realised my true passion was in travel and made the exciting move to Audley. I have since spent a great length of time exploring South Africa, Tanzania, Mauritius, Seychelles, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
I relished my time in both Mauritius and the Seychelles; I really think the Indian Ocean is home to some of the most beautiful countries in the world. In both counties you will find incredible beaches with turquoise waters, delicious Creole food, a variety of wildlife and marine life, and an abundance of history.
I'll never forget when…
One of my most memorable travel experiences was a catamaran trip around the island of Praslin in the Indian Ocean. The excursion lasted the whole day and we got to sail around some very beautiful and very deserted islands in the Seychelles including Coco, Felicite and Petit Souer. It’s hard to put into words just how beautiful these remote islands and beaches are but the highlight of this day would have to be the incredible marine life I got to snorkel alongside, which included sting rays, sharks, turtles and dolphins. The delicious BBQ lunch the crew cooked for us was a lovely surprise as well.
