I would be delighted to help you plan your trip of a lifetime. After graduating with a degree in Geography, my desire to explore the world has led me across 4 continents and to over 40 countries. I believe that travel is both enriching and humbling, and some of my unforgettable journeys include a solo backpacking trip in Costa Rica and travelling 4,000 miles across Europe by camper-van. Through my travels, I have learnt that authentic experiences are at the heart of every journey – my interactions with local people, immersive street market tours, and visiting spectacular landscapes, have contributed to my greatest memories from each trip. I love inspiring my guests with such unique, real experiences and bespoke itineraries tailored exactly to their wishes.

My favourite experiences…

Favourite local food from a destination
‘Gaeng boo’, a southern style Phuket curry is my ultimate dish. It is a bright yellow curry with rich crab flakes, fresh chilli and creamy coconut milk. Having crab curry on the open beach cafes of Phuket was a dream.

Favourite wildlife encounter
We explored the huge tracts of Damaraland’s ephemeral river beds in search of something special- the infamous desert elephant found in only two African countries, Nambia and Mali. Being near a secluded granite gorge and seeing wild elephants was extremely moving.

Favourite cultural experience
I loved exploring the 10th century capital of Sri Lanka; Polonnaruwa, the ancient capital of the Sinhalese. Exploring the temples, palaces, huge dagobas (Buddhist stupas) on foot was a great and very unique experience.

I'll always remember when…

We drove to Sossusveli in Namibia, a famous desert with a large salt and clay pan. Leaving at 4:30am in the morning, we climbed high red dunes in silence with no sound except for the whisper of the winds in the desert. Climbing the dunes at sunrise was one of the best travel experiences I’ve ever had. The sunrise revealed vast, dry, uninhabited expanses amongst the backdrop of a never-ending deep blue sky.
