From a very young age I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel, and later I lived in a variety of places including Switzerland, France, Central America and California. I developed a passion for the world and sea adventure in particular.
Right before I started studying hotel management in Lausanne, I spent three months exploring Central America, journeying from Panama to Guatemala with a six-week stop in Costa Rica where I discovered scuba diving and just fell in love with it. From then on, I spent all my holidays researching the best dives on the planet. From a huge manta ray in Costa Rica to the amazing schools of eagle rays in the Maldives, I soon found that the sea has many wonders to offer. Now working at Audley in the Hidden Beaches department, I get the chance to share my passion for travel with an underwater twist.
I'll never forget when…
The first time I went on a safari, I stayed at DumaTau Camp in the Lineyanti Wildlife Reserve in Botswana. Seeing wildlife outside a zoo was one of my biggest childhood dreams and the camp was the location for many firsts for me: my first lion sighting right outside the airplane and my first hippo sighting from my outside shower. The rangers are absolutely wonderful and take the time to explain how they spot the animals and how the animals behave. I saw so much over four days, it’s an absolutely incredible spot for a first safari trip.
