Lauren visiting Mai Chau, Vietnam

Lauren, Thailand & Vietnam Specialist

It all started with years of German courses in high school and college. From this, I developed a burning desire to see the world and when offered the opportunity to study abroad in Berlin, I jumped at the chance. While there, I lived with a host family and learned about local culture and got to travel throughout Europe in my spare time.

After graduating with a degree in international affairs, I moved to Thailand to teach English for a year and experienced a part of the world rich in temples, spicy curries, generous people and a language so different to my own.

While submersing myself in Thai life, I also took the chance to travel in Vietnam, Malaysia and Hong Kong before returning home and beginning work at Audley. As a Southeast Asia specialist, I hope to deliver journeys that are just as memorable as those I was so fortunate to have.

I'll never forget when…

Kind eyes, smiles beaming from ear to ear, and reassuring nods took the place of words as I spent almost three hours with a host family in Hue, Vietnam. The mother prepared lunch for us using fresh herbs and spices from the garden and proudly showed off her Vietnamese home cooking. They taught me about the various local dishes and chuckled at my chopstick skills. Although the family spoke limited English, it somehow made the exchange feel even more genuine. It was very touching to be welcomed so wholeheartedly and to learn so much about home life in Vietnam.
