After graduating university in Cardiff and working four years in the finance sector, Gareth finally got round to following his dream to travel and booked himself a one way ticket to Thailand. Always looking for adventure, over the next three years, Gareth found himself travelling throughout Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Europe, with two years spent living in Australia working in the mining industry where on his time off you could find him exploring everything the country had to offer.
On returning to the UK, Gareth’s passion for travel led him to pursue a career with Audley. Since joining, he's travelled to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, a part of the world where he had his most memorable travel experiences. More recently he has spent time in the Philippines.
When he’s not thinking or talking about travel, being a Welshman, Gareth is a big rugby fan and also enjoys cycling and cliff diving.

I'll never forget when…
Anything involving motorbikes, food and music will always rate highly on my list. The Saigon after dark combined all these into an unforgettable experience. Night time riding around the back streets of bustling Saigon on the back of a Vespa scooter, stopping at local street vendors and sampling some delicious and somewhat strange foods that included frogs legs and snails, was a real eye opener. Add a visit to a local music venue that the tourists don’t know about and enjoy a well-deserved local beer. For the more energetic people you’re taken to a lively music venue that will guarantee to bring out the dancer in you. Nightlife, culture and frogs legs on a scooter is the best way to spend an evening in Saigon!
