Adam became fascinated in travel during his Gap Year when he explored and taught in East Africa, South East Asia and Australia. This also spurred his love for languages, and so he decided to study Mandarin as part of his university degree, which included a year living in Beijing and Shanghai. As well as enhancing his understanding of the culture and language, he took every chance to explore more of China.
Having graduated, he looked no further than joining Audley Travel and sharing his knowledge. While at Audley, Adam has had the opportunity to spend a month travelling along the Silk Road, covering more than two thousand miles from Beijing to Uzbekistan. Along the way he explored the deserts of western China, the mountain scenery of Kyrgyzstan, and the ancient markets of Uzbekistan.
When not arranging unforgettable trips for clients, Adam enjoys everything sport-related, attending gigs and discussing his next trip with friends.

Adam's Most Memorable Experience
You would have thought that having visited three different sights of the Great Wall before, going for a fourth time may have been fairly tedious. However, going to the Jinshanling section just blew me away and the experience could not have been more magical. Jinshanling is approximately a two hour drive from Beijing, and draws much less crowds than the crowded spots at Mutianyu and Badaling.
Seeing the Great Wall first hand is something that simply cannot be described in words. The sheer scale of it is unfathomable, and sitting on one of the towers at Jinshanling gives you the perfect view as it winds from one mountain top to the next. Due to the spot being less visited, there are therefore less touts, and during my whole three hour trek on the wall I must have seen around only four other people. It is no surprise that the Great Wall is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and simply sitting and enjoying the view at Jinshanling is a completely unforgettable experience.
