Gillian caught the travel bug aged 18 after a month-long volunteering and exploration trip to Vietnam. Since then she has travelled at every available opportunity and was fortunate enough to Interrail through Europe during one summer break from university. She also accepted a summer job in Tahoe, California, for three months, during which time she explored much of the state.
After graduating from University with a degree in history, she worked to fund a seven-month backpacking adventure through Southeast Asia and Australasia, a trip that that confirmed her desire to a pursue a career in the travel industry. Upon her return she joined Audley as a USA specialist.
Her favourite aspect of the job is sharing her experiences of the states she has visited. Highlights include a day trip to visit the Amish community in Lancaster, a tour of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, and shopping New York.

Gillian's Most Memorable Experience
My most memorable moment of the USA was driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. My initial reservations over driving were quickly forgotten as I drove through the stunning mountain range surrounded by beautiful scenery on all sides. I was fortunate that time was on my side and I was able to stop at many of the lookout points located along the road and take in the views from 6,000 feet.
