I have spent many years working in the travel industry, working for tour operators, a travel agent and an airline. I lived in Singapore as a child, and that kick-started my love of travel. I love visiting the iconic sites of the world, and then really get under the skin of a country learning about how local people live. To meet local people, see how they live, learn about their crafts, taste the food, chat about family life, all these things are what brings a country to life for me. Being invited in to a wedding party in a rural village in India will always be one of my most precious memories.
