Hannah, Southeast Asia Specialist

“It was more than bamboo and nails, more than four walls and a roof, it was the chance to build not just a house but a first time home.”

The above quote is taken from Hannah’s travel diary in Thailand and Cambodia. It describes a group of determined people who built forty houses in rural Cambodia. It was on this journey that Hannah discovered her enthusiasm for travelling in South East Asia.

After graduating with a First Class Honours in Ancient History, eager to explore more ancient civilisations, Hannah worked for six months on the cruise ship Aegean Odyssey, helping passengers on tour. During her time on board Hannah extensively travelled nearly all of Southeast Asia as well as parts of India, Sri Lanka, the Middle East and the Mediterranean.

Upon returning to the UK, Hannah joined Audley to share the knowledge and admiration she has for Southeast Asia. Hannah enjoys all things creative and active such as taking photographs or making birthday cards, or climbing on rocks and running around a netball court.

I'll never forget when…

In my opinion, memories are all about the people you meet. Since joining Audley I had the opportunity to explore Myanmar more fully, which involved visiting a set of villages on the west side of the Ayeyarwaddy River in Bagan. Inside a house, which was used for weaving bamboo, one of the village elders combed my hair and styled it into a Burmese bun and later that day another kind lady smeared Thanaka across my face (Burmese equivalent of foundation) and placed fresh flowers in my hair.
