The travel bug bit Carol at a young age after joining her Dad on his round the world trip in Canada at the age of fourteen. Taking every opportunity to get away, Carol visited many places around the globe before embarking on a round the world trip which included trekking the Inca Trail, scuba diving with sharks in Australia, the jungles of Borneo and Everest Base Camp.
She went on to spend three months travelling throughout the Subcontinent. Since starting at Audley Carol has spent a month in Rajasthan and the Himalayan Foothills, exploring the bazaars and learning the secrets of Indian cooking, Nepal, where she spent time trekking and rafting, as well as watching wild elephants in the Chitwan National Park, and most recently Bhutan where she discovered the beauty of this Himalayan Mountain Kingdom. In her free time she enjoys planning her next adventure as well as trekking and making a home after a long time living out of a travel bag!
I'll never forget when…
Trekking in the Himalaya has got to be the highlight of my travels. We trekked for 12 days solid through constantly changing and incredible mountains and scenery. The view of Everest in the distance spurred me on and I felt humbled to be in its shadow. Although it was hugely challenging, every day was a huge reward and I always felt as though I had really deserved those frozen chocolate bars that I came to know and love. It was an experience that even now provokes goose bumps and one that I am sure I will always remember.
