Having grown up in Hong Kong and with my family scattered around the world I have been afforded the opportunity to travel from a young age. As soon as I was old enough, I struck off on my own to remote regions in Mongolia, Tibet, East Africa and Morocco. Having completed a geography degree at university I decided my passion for travel and yearning to learn about the world would be best served in the travel industry. Over the last 5 years I have met some incredibly interesting people, seen some amazing places and had a great time doing it!

The locals always know best so follow their lead…
Where you would like to visit next and why?
Mt Kilimanjaro, Namibia, Chile, Lebanon, Mustique, Japan and Bhutan are all contenders. However, the prospect of Heli-Skiing really excites me; although Canada would be incredible; why not in Greenland or Kamchatka? Some serious carbon off-setting would be required: but it would be worth it!
We especially enjoyed Nita Lake Lodge, we found it very beautiful with a "relaxed" style. We had a wonderful room and perfect service by very helpful and friendly staff. We just loved this place; peaceful, and yet close to Whistlers.
