Katie’s wanderlust first set in while she was attending the University of Vermont pursuing her degrees in Geography and Tourism.
Upon graduating she moved overseas and spent a year living in Australia, which served as an introduction to life abroad and was a decision that changed the course of her life. On the way back from Australia she spent six weeks in Thailand, where she fell in love with the country and the locals.
Katie enjoyed the next few years spent summering on Nantucket, backpacking through Central and South America, and living in Boston, but felt compelled to return to Southeast Asia. Eventually, she continued adventuring around her favorite parts of the world before settling down in New Zealand for a year. Upon her return to Boston, she joined the Audley Travel team and has enjoyed experiencing Southeast Asia the Audley Way.
I'll never forget when…
One of my favorite things on my trip with Audley was visiting the MandaLao Elephant Sanctuary just outside of Luang Prabang. Hiking into the wilderness and meeting the elephants was spectacular! We walked with them through the jungle down to the river where we got to feed and bathe them, all the while surrounded by panoramic views which made for some perfect photo opportunities.
