Having embarked on exciting family holidays growing up, Katy leapt at the chance of a gap year after graduating in Journalism from Cardiff University.
Having developed an appetite for the exotic, one year soon turned into four years, with her extensive adventures taking her to North and South America, Africa, Australasia and much of Asia. Inspired to first visit the Indian subcontinent after reading the Gregory David Roberts hit 'Shantaram', Katy spent four months exploring the wonderfully diverse region. She was instantly captivated by the kindness and vibrancy of the people, not to mention the stunning landscapes and the beauty of trekking in the mighty Himalayas.
Joining Audley as a North India and Nepal specialist, she has since made many trips back to the charming regions. More recently, Katy was delighted to return to Russia and explore further Moscow and St. Petersburg on a research trip for Audley. Her fascination with the country stemmed from Winston Churchill describing Russia as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma", and having first visited here two years before on an overland trip, this time she became even more enamoured by the intriguing history of the Tsars.
When not planning trips of a lifetime for her clients, Katy enjoys yoga and visiting her family back in Devon.

Katy's Most Memorable Experience
I will never forget the afternoon I spent exploring the marvellous Pashupatinath Temple, located on the banks of the Bagmati River in Kathmandu. A holy temple like no other, Pashupatinath is dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva and was an experience that satiated all the senses.
Visiting during the festival of Maha Shivaratri, hundreds of holy men and women descended from all over Nepal and many neighbouring countries. The atmosphere was truly captivating and one that will stay with me forever.
