I started work with Travel Nation in September 2015 and have not looked back. I grew up in a little country village in Buckinghamshire and my childhood holidays were normally very wet camping experiences in Devon and Cornwall! I still really enjoy camping, but I do love visiting far flung places that are new and exciting. Traveling is definitely good for my soul.
I didn’t go to University, but I did decide to travel around Thailand for 9 months after finishing college, which was an amazing experience for me having never gone much further than Greece!
I worked for a Senior Executive Search firm but felt I wanted to work somewhere with more heart and soul, I certainly found it here.

Walking my doggy Tulula.
Fav romantic film is ‘The Bridges of Maddison County’.
Running my own Airbnb somewhere beautiful with lots of rescued animals.
Bali, it was beautiful as were the temples, the people were honest, kind and friendly. It was so easy to get around, so many interesting places to see and things to do, yummy food and the massages were brutal but brilliant!
A good hair conditioner, sun cream, a great book, footwear for all occasions, a neck cushion, a pack of penguins (the biscuit not the bird!).
Getting the boat from Surat Thani to Krabi – at that point in my life I had never seen an island quite so stunning, and a sea quite so turquoise.
I hate hard beds and lumpy pillows!
Ducks foot soup!
I had an ice cream in Thailand which had sweet corn in it - just wrong!
I worked for the Rasta Bar on Koh Phangan, Thailand for 4 months.
Mumbai, India. I found it very hard to deal with the homeless children and older people.
My dog and cat.
