About Philippa

My love affair with adventure was sparked in my gap year. During those formative 12 months, I travelled across the USA, Australasia, Japan and Europe. Since then, I have studied and worked in several European cities and countries, developing my understanding of other cultures and European languages. My travel highlight to date is a charity trek across the Great Wall of China and then heading to Mongolia where I spent my days in yurts and yak carts. A career in travel expands your horizons – I find my bucket list gets bigger and more adventurous every year. I love how the A&K team is committed and passionate about producing new experiences and itineraries to share with our clients.

Three

Besides the obvious passport, my battery pack. I never want to miss taking photos of those unique moments
