Growing up, Katy was in awe of her father’s adventures around the globe, and so she leapt at the chance of seeing more of the world after graduating in Journalism from Cardiff University.
Inspired to first visit the Indian subcontinent after reading the book Shantaram, she spent several months exploring this diverse area. Since joining Audley she has re-visited the region and continues to be captivated by the vibrancy and charm of India, the spectacular mountainous landscapes of Nepal and the scenic national parks and coastline of Sri Lanka.
More recently, she has taken the fascinating country of Russia under her wing, a country which stands in stark contrast to the Indian subcontinent. She was delighted to return having already explored it on the Trans-Mongolian Railway two years prior — and so her intrigue with the Tsars continues.
In her spare time, Katy enjoys yoga and visiting family in Devon.
I'll never forget when…
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.
