I first left the country at five years old to visit Trinidad and Tobago, where my dad grew up. It sparked a fascination for travel and from a young age, I dreamt of visiting faraway places.
After college I saved up to travel and was able to visit Vietnam on a month-long trip. I fell in love with the culture, the food and the friendly people. From then on I was hooked and some of my most memorable travel experiences since include attending a wedding in Russia, standing at the edge of the Cliffs of Moher, and touring Hanoi on the back of a motorbike with a local.
After working in the hospitality industry, which led to a career in event planning, I decided I wanted to take my passion for travel and combine it with my event-planning experience. Now at Audley, I have the pleasure of creating once-in-a-lifetime trips for others.
I'll never forget when…
Jumping on the back of a Vespa with a local and driving through the streets in one of Asia's busiest cities was an adventure I will never forget. You feel like you are transported to another world, seeing sights you might normally miss and getting a local's perspective on the city. This was a great way to spend my last night in Saigon. For three hours I felt like a local, indulging in unusual food, listening to live music and sipping on cocktails made with local ingredients. This is an experience not to be missed.
