Rael, Southeast Asia Specialist

After a number of years working in advertising Rael decided to take a career break before relocating to Australia. Taking this opportunity he spend a year extensively travelling in Southeast Asia, he managed to visit every country in the region bar Brunei. He quickly fell in love with Southeast Asia and all it has to offer. While in Australia, where he returned to work in advertising, his fascination of the region drew him back to Indonesia and Thailand for further short trips.

He soon realised that his passion was for travel - and Southeast Asia in particular - so he decided to return to the UK to pursue a career in the industry. Wanting to share his knowledge with others soon lead Rael to Audley, where he has since returned to Indonesia and Myanmar, exploring them in more depth and broadening his knowledge.

Rael's Most Memorable Experience

An abiding memory of mine was being welcomed into a family's home in a small village outside of Pindaya for a cup of tea and to help them make cheroots (Burmese cigars), which they'd later sell at the local market. It really is remarkable to see just how friendly the people are and how largely unaffected they are by the western world. The fact they are just as intrigued by you as you are by them makes for this to be a truly memorable experience.
