I’m originally from Hertfordshire, but after many long years in London decided I would be happier by the seaside! I moved to Brighton in 2018 and joined Travel Nation in 2019 after working for a London-based Travel Company. I haven’t looked back!
My main passion has always been travel, I love new cultures and visiting new places – but mainly trying out the food! I am a big music lover and have been to many festivals in the UK and abroad. I also love the outdoors and enjoy walking, hiking, cycling – really anything that involves being in nature!
I was a journalism student at Staffordshire University.
I originally joined Flight Centre in 2014 after my first big round the world trip. I worked with them in between my travels for around 3-4 years. I later joined Audley travel as a USA specialist for two years and have also worked in Business travel positions in the corporate world.
Nikki has visited:
I’m either being really active or chilling with a good book or movie.
Teaching English somewhere exotic.
The Northern Territory, Australia – 5 months! I loved it.
New Zealand. I don’t usually enjoy a cooler climate, and thought it would be a bit quiet for me – however, the scenery is just stunning. The area around Queenstown, Milford Sound and also Abel Tasman National Park are some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.
Australia. I love the scenery, nature, the outback… And the weather!
If I’m honest, it was probably going to Orlando with my family when I was a teenager. I really remember just wanting to travel around the whole of the USA after that.
Queenstown (the view), New Zealand
The Northern Territory, Australia
Daintree EcoLodge, Australia. It’s a beautiful, secluded eco-lodge in the heart of the Daintree rainforest. It’s a short drive away from some of the most beautiful scenery and beaches in Australia.
Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Islands. The sand is so powdery-soft and white here and the sea is so blue it almost doesn’t look real!
I have tried camel… I wouldn’t recommend it!
I have worked many weird and (some) wonderful jobs on my travels, door-to-door sales, pear-picking, working on a cattle station, even working in a café in the middle of Litchfield National Park! I have also worked abroad teaching English as a foreign language.
Depressing may not be the right word, but visiting The Killing Fields in Cambodia was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. It is a beautiful country and the people there are so friendly it makes it hard to comprehend. I do highly recommend a visit to appreciate the culture and history of the country.
Hong Kong. I have never been but it looks so vibrant and exciting, I would love to explore and try out some of the local cuisine.
