My passion for travel stems from my own adventures across the globe. After graduating university, I set off for a trip to New Zealand which quickly led me to realise just how much there is to see and experience in the world. And so I spent two years traveling and working around New Zealand, Vietnam, Australia, Fiji, Malaysia, and Hong Kong.
I love finding beautiful lakes to visit, historic temples to be amazed at, and fantastic cuisines to try! The excitement truly starts with the planning; I’m sure you’ll feel the same. I was able to turn my travel dreams into memories that I am excited to share with you, and thrilled to help you plan a trip that will be enchanting as well! Our planet is so very special, we should do all we can to explore and discover as much of it as we can.

My favourite holidays…
My favourite experiences…
Favourite local food from a destination I love
Bánh mì in Vietnam. Bánh mì is a French-Vietnamese hybrid invented in the 1950s sold widely across Vietnam in both restaurants and as street food. It is a type of short baguette with thin, crisp crust and soft, airy texture inside that is often split lengthwise and filled with various savory ingredients.
Favourite wildlife encounter
Seeing the Glow Worms in Waitomo Caves. The Waitomo Glowworm Caves attraction is a cave at Waitomo on the North Island of New Zealand. It is known for its population of Arachnocampa luminosa, a glow worm species found exclusively in New Zealand.
Favourite culture trip
Visiting Waitangi Treaty Grounds, New Zealand’s most important historic site. Exploring the Treaty House, and the traditional Māori waka taua (war canoes) and seeing traditional cultural performances – such as the traditional war dance (The HAKA!)
I'll always remember when…
I stayed at the untouched Drawaqa Island where the stunning coral gardens are some of the best in the Fijian isles. One of my favourite experiences was snorkelling with manta rays. With two-thirds of the archipelago being inhabited, Drawaqa Island is one of the best places in the world to see manta rays in their natural habitat.
