I’ve always enjoyed travel. Straight after finishing high school, I took a once-in-a-lifetime, three-month journey across the USA and Canada, taking in over 35 states.
Since then, I’ve been fortunate to travel all over the world, taking in amazing destinations such as South and East Africa, Australasia and Asia, as well as the majority of South America – a place most dear to my heart.
There’s still a lot more on my bucket list, though! I love nothing more than talking about all the different destinations and experiences with my clients to share my knowledge and passion for our beautiful planet.
Favourite destination: USA
I truly believe that the USA can offer something for everyone and create unforgettable memories. Bustling cities in the east contrast with the charming towns and musical heritage of the Deep South. Meanwhile, the wild plains of the Rockies and wilderness of Alaska feel a world away from the glorious coastline of California. A vast array of accents, characters and authentic experiences await. I’ve enjoyed an entire world in this amazing country.
Favourite hotel: Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara
This hotel oozes the character of 1920s ‘Gatsby-esque’ America. It boasts beautiful lawns and courtyards, as well as its own golden beach and an exclusive members-only spa and pool - where local celebrities such as Michael Douglas can often be spotted!
For me, this is the epitome of an American road trip. Starting off in bustling Las Vegas, pick up your car and drive through the Rocky Mountains. Take in brilliant National Parks, from Zion to Arches and Monument Valley to the most famous of all – The Grand Canyon. This trip has something for everyone and for all ages. Finish with a leisurely drive through Arizona’s beautiful red rock scenery before flying home from Phoenix for a trip straight out of a Hollywood Western you’ll never forget.
My aim is to give my clients a brilliant holiday experience, from start to finish. From our initial call, I’ll guide you through the destination you wish to visit, as well as listen and adhere to your needs and requests for your special trip. I enjoy bringing my enthusiasm, passion for travelling and specialism for my favourite countries to clients. To me, it’s so important to pass this on so you can have something completely amazing to look forward to.
Your Top Tips for Travellers
- If you can, try to dine outside of the hotels and take in local cuisine and drinks; the most obscure looking restaurants can often have the best food around. If the locals are there, it must be good
- Book excursions before you travel to avoid disappointment – particularly in high season. For example, in San Francisco, a trip to Alcatraz is a must, so buy your tickets in advance
- A global tip and one I’ve learnt the hard way: Always. Wear. Sunscreen.
