I was raised in Brighton but spent most of my working life in London, which was fast-paced and exciting. I have recently returned after 25 years to find a great work/life balance and to be back by the coast. My passion is travelling to remote and extraordinary places.
Swindon, but I moved to Brighton when I was 8 years old.
I spent my ‘student days’ living and working in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. I was also a scuba diving instructor in the Red Sea.
I have recently joined Travel Nation following 17 years of experience working at Trailfinders, where I focused on long-haul destinations, bespoke touring, and weddings abroad.
Tracey has visited:
Doing yoga, walking my dogs, hanging out with my friends, going to music festivals (particularly Glastonbury).
A dog sitter and walker, or I would work at a dog shelter
New Zealand. I had a 2 night stop planned in Queenstown and ended up staying for 6 months during the ski season. Just stunning and so much outdoor fun!
Nepal. I have been twice and both times I have been wowed by the scenery, people and food. I came away with an amazing sense of peace and well-being.
New Zealand (South Island). It’s really home from home, with all of the best bits from the UK and so much more.
Overland from Nairobi to Cape Town over 70 days with a group of 22. It was epic and I took my mum who still talks about it 24 years later.
New Zealand, Nepal, and Chile (Patagonia).
Tierra Patagonia, Torres del Paine National Park. A stunning, contemporary hotel located by Lake Sarmiento. There are many outdoor excursions and the scenery whilst hiking is breathtaking. The guides are knowledgeable and take great pride in making each trip really special. It is high-end but very casual at the same time. The unique design, location and food make it a stand-out hotel for me.
Anse Lazio Beach, Praslin, Seychelles. Crystal-clear blue waters, powder-white sand, and you can spot sea turtles and stunning reef fish close to the water's edge.
Galapagos Islands. It was everything I had hoped it would be and my expectations were very high. It's the most unique destination I’ve ever visited and very educational, as well as ethical. It was a wildlife experience in its purest form and the local fauna having no fear of ‘us humans’ was incredible.
I would love to visit both of the Polar Regions for the spectacular scenery and wildlife.
I spent 1 year working in New Zealand, 1 year in Australia, 18 months in Canada and 1 year in Egypt (Red Sea).
My first visit to India as a very inexperienced 21-year-old travelling in the monsoon season on a one-way ticket with no guidebook (well before the internet was a thing). I jumped on the wrong train carriage (men's instead of the women's) for a 24-hour journey to Goa only to find everything was closed due to the time of year. I then realised how important expert guidance was…
My dogs, pubs, and driving my car (on the right side of the road!).
