Ellie, Southeast Asia Specialist

Ellie's passion for travel and new experiences started with a solo tour of Australia and New Zealand aged eighteen. On completion of her MSc in French and English at the University of Edinburgh, she went in search of the perfect career but having always been drawn to Asia, she decided to leave her sensible side in the UK and head off on a six month tour of the region.

It was here that the combination of smiles, fragrant food and diverse cultural experiences cemented the idea that working in travel was the road to take. If she can't travel all the time, she wants to talk about it. Since starting at Audley, she has travelled in Borneo and Indonesia extensively.

When not building the perfect itineraries for clients, Ellie is a keen photographer, plays music and spends far too much researching her next travel destination.

I'll never forget when…

One of the most memorable experiences in Asia would be mimicking the calls of individual birds with my private nature guide while trekking the trails in the Danum Valley. Standing high above the treetops on the canopy walkway at Borneo Rainforest Lodge, I was taught the calls of some of the most prevalent birds of the rainforest. It was upon hearing the distant responses that made me realise how awe-inspiring being so close to nature can be.
