As a child, Brigitte was enthralled by tales from the Arabian Nights and the lure of the desert. Consequently, having finished her art and design degree and having become a partner in the family business she headed off to Morocco, falling in love with all that the country had to offer and spending every holiday for the next few years returning to explore new areas. Brigitte was so intrigued by Arabic culture that she later decided to return to university, studying a B.A. in Social Anthropology at the School of Oriental & African Studies in London, with a focus on North Africa and modern Arabic.
During this time Brigitte also traveled to Egypt to expand her knowledge of the region and assist with her studies. She then worked in the Civil Service for nine years before her love of travel took hold again and she embarked upon a yearlong round the world adventure. Upon her return she was delighted to see that there was a vacancy for a North Africa specialist at Audley, marrying her two lifelong passions, travel and the history and culture of North Africa.
Brigitte has recently completed a further extensive trip to Morocco and Egypt to really get an understanding of what our clients do there, cruising along the Nile and re-discovering the atmospheric souks of Marrakesh. When Brigitte is not working or dreaming about traveling, she enjoys walking in the hills and creating artifacts from recycled textiles.

We had very high expectations when we embarked on our trip. Our expectations were exceeded.
From my first conversation with our specialist, Brigitte, we were excited about our Morocco adventure. We shared our interests and abilities with Brigitte and found that our requests were granted, down to the tiniest detail. We have already recommended Audley Travel and Brigitte in particular on social media and in person.
I'll never forget when…
Snorkeling in the Red Sea has to be one of my favorite memories of my time in Egypt. Many of the hotels have 'house reefs' which literally start where the beach ends. I hired a mask, fins and snorkel for a few dollars and as soon as I entered the water, the brilliance of the diverse corals looked like an underwater garden; not visited by butterflies but by shoals of fish in every form and color.
