Zoe, Egypt, Oman, Spain & Portugal Specialist
I first discovered the Arab world during a family holiday to Morocco aged 11. I remember being struck by the warmth of the people, the delicious food and the chaos of it all. Whilst living in Tel Aviv I was able to explore some of the surrounding countries such as Jordan and the incredible pyramids and temples of Egypt. My first year at Audley enabled me to travel back to Egypt where I was lucky enough to do a Nile cruise before heading on to discover the beautiful landscapes of Oman and the mountains of Jebel Akhdar.
This year I have spent 5 weeks exploring the Iberian Peninsula and the fantastic culture, food and art on offer in both Spain and Portugal. Tasting the wines and port of the Douro valley was a definite highlight as was a visit to the Alcazar in Seville where the Moorish legacy of Andalucía is made apparent in the ornate tile-work and architecture.

I'll never forget when…
Seeing the sun set over the Red Sea for the first time was quite an experience. I was sitting on a beach in Sinai, arid mountains rising behind me and a vividly painted sea in front of me. In the distance I could hear someone playing a melody on an oud as I sipped a fresh mint tea and found myself in a Middle Eastern paradise.
