I started my travelling adventure at 17 and have so far journeyed independently to over 60 countries covering all continents several times.
I have hitchhiked across Africa, have drunk fermented camel milk with nomads in Mongolia, swum with manta rays in The Maldives, and been hosted like a princess at a cricket test in India. Yes, it was my choice and sooo amazing.
My passion for having authentic experiences and immersing myself in each destination has given me a lifetime of dinner party stories to entertain and amuse friends and travellers.
I have had so many amazing journeys and met even more amazing people, but it was my first trip to Antarctica in 2000 that had the biggest impact on my life. I dreamed of returning there before I had even left and through good choices and good fortune I was able to realise my dream in 2008 when I led a group of NRMA Members on a One Ocean Expedition, with Aaron again as my Expedition Leader.
I am delighted that much of my time is spent helping plan journeys for our travellers, and was very privileged to return to Antarctica in 2015 with a group of our own Forward Travellers, introducing them to my other favourite place, Patagonia.Just recently I have discovered the Northern wonders of Canada and the High Arctic. I was blown away with the amazing scenery, history, wildlife and wilderness. Having polar bears seeminlgy perform for us, and beluga whales come for a close look were memories I cherish. But I still can’t quite believe the amazing experience of seeing the Aurora Borealis dancing in sky above me.
The trip is now a fixture on the Forward Calendar and our 2018 Journey is open for bookings now.
Will you be coming with me?
I call myself Head Chef, as I am the creative arm of Forward Travel. I do most of the ‘cooking’, finding great products and creatively putting them together to create Journeys to Savour for our travellers.
I’d love to help plan your journey too so please let me know where you want to go, and I’ll get cooking.
I look Forward to talking to you soon.
