My passion for travel started at a young age. I had always dreamed of travelling around the world, so when I left school I started working in my local travel agent, I have now worked in the travel industry for 18 years, selling the world. I have been lucky enough to travel to some amazing destinations, A personal favorite is western Canada, where I got to see Grizzly Bears in their nature habitat. 

My travels have now brought me to Abercrombie & Kent in Cheltenham to specialise in my passion, which is building tailor made itineraries for North America, dealing with both the trade and direct clients.

Carry on the down the Keys…
by Charlotte Wells

Having self-dubbed myself an Orlando connoisseur after travelling to the Sunshine State on eight different occasions since 2005, I thought I had Florida sussed. Theme park mecca, happy people providing great service, and quintessentially American fast food joints – what’s not to like?

How the West Once Was
By Charlotte Wells
