About yourself

I love to travel. From family holidays as a child, shlepping through Europe in my dad’s estate car, to my first chance to spread my wings on my own, right up to my most recent Adventure Company journey, it’s my passion and my obsession. I’ve spent weeks travelling coast to coast across America, LA to New York discovering the many weird and wonderful cities in between; a year travelling around Australia – following the backpacker routes, occasionally wandering off the beaten track and loving every minute; and of course I have been on more than a couple of trips with The Adventure Company!

Snow or sun...which are you?

Sun, always sun

Favourite mode of transport when travelling?

Local bus

Ever eaten something 'strange' on a trip?

It’s only strange if you’re not local!

Roughing it, camping phobe or somewhere in the middle?

Ideally it’s all about the camping

Favourite destination visited and why?

Guatemala – it had been on my list since I started travelling as it just sounded amazing, and it took me over 10 years and many trips to other places before I eventually got around to going there, but when I did it didn’t disappoint. The history, culture, landscapes, markets, people, animals, everything was fascinating. Everyone should go, but not all at once, that would ruin it.

Your idea of the 'ultimate' destination?

Can I go back to Guatemala? It’s pretty close in my mind as it has everything (including fairly few Westerners as many overlook it in favour of Mexico, Costa Rica and Cuba)

Next stop?

Who knows? That’s one of the things that makes working in travel interesting.
