Caroline or "Caz" was introduced to the wonders of travel at an early age by her parents who spent several years voyaging around the Mediterranean on their sailing boat. In between sailing holidays she completed her early education in North Wales, moving to Bradford University to complete her media communications degree. Upon gaining her BSc, she moved to Leeds and worked in the consumer goods sector as a sales manager.
In 2006 she took up scuba diving and embarked on a career-changing trip to Southeast Asia to become a scuba diving instructor. She travelled extensively throughout the region and was even lucky enough to find work on a luxury sailing yacht.
Her passion for travel ignited, in 2008 she returned to the UK to fulfill her dreams of working in the travel industry and started life at Audley. After five years at Audley, she embarked on a career in the US and became one of the founding members of our Boston office. During this time she also expanded her knowledge of this corner of the world considerably. Returning to the UK office in early 2015 - after taking some time out to explore Peru and Ecuador - she became a fully-fledged South America specialist.
Outside of work Caz is a qualified personal trainer and life coach who enjoys working out, cooking curries, films, writing, volcanoes, the ocean and everything flight related.
What a fabulous trip you and your team arranged for me! My trip went flawlessly from start to finish
What a fabulous trip you and your team arranged for me! My trip went flawlessly from start to finish. I felt that I received the highest quality personal service from you and your team in the U.S. You were perfectly organized, inspired confidence, and followed through at all times to avoid any glitches. This was very important to me as a first-time solo traveller. The local representatives, guides and drivers were always prompt, extremely courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They did everything in their power to ensure that I was able to see and do everything on my agenda, and more. The hotels were first rate in every location – excellent locations, service, accommodations and food. I feel exceedingly fortunate to have had Audley Travel arrange this trip for me. In fact, I was so impressed with your company’s service that I decided to have Audley Travel arrange my very next solo trip, to Burma and Laos.
I'll never forget when…
On my last full day exploring the Galapagos we enjoyed a wet landing at Darwin Bay on Genovesa Island. I left my towels on the beach while I went off to explore the beautiful scenery and nesting birds, and when I came back a found a pair of lava gulls had started nesting right next to my towels. I watched in delight as they went about their business picking up pieces of shell and depositing them in unison next to my towels. They were totally undeterred by my presence and I sat down for what seemed like hours watching them. This was a truly unique wildlife experience and one that I have thought about many times since.
