My love of travel started age 18 with an adventure on the trans-Siberian railway, it wasn’t long before I headed off overseas again for 8 years teaching scuba diving. I was lucky enough to work in and visit some amazing destinations including The Seychelles, Malaysia, Fiji, New Zealand, Cook Islands and French Polynesia before ending up living in Sydney, Australia for 6 years. My time in Australia was topped off with an epic 3 month trip circumnavigating the coast. Once back in the UK I embarked on a career in travel so I could put my extensive Australasia and South Pacific knowledge to good use helping to create unforgettable trips.
