Tell us about you
I have a passion for travelling and the Intrepid brand epitomises the type of travel I enjoy most. When I go on holiday, I want to have an adventure.
Most recent adventure
I did a 2-month trip with Intrepid in Africa overlanding from Cape Town to Nairobi. It was the trip of a lifetime! Imagine going to sleep to the grunting of hippos in Botswana or hearing lions roaring in the distance in the Serengeti - amazing! From Africa I headed over to Canada to do a ski season and then work in the most beautiful town in the Rocky Mountains, Banff. It was one extreme to the other! The Rockies are stunning and I loved hiking, kayaking and wildlife spotting (including bears!).
Best travel memory
Trekking up the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda to visit the Mountain Gorillas. However, a beautiful male lion sitting next to our jeep in the Serengeti is a very close second.
Best travel tips
Don’t keep your money all in one place, separate it into different bags and hiding spots. Photocopy your passport and other important documents and keep one in a different bag to your originals and one at home.
Favourite food experience
After a day visiting the Musee d’Orsay in Paris I had an afternoon tea of Chocolate Moullex with pistachio ice-cream and raspberry coulis.
Any advice for people considering embarking on the trip of a lifetime
Keep an open mind - expect the unexpected and embrace it.
