“Too many stories and memories to write - but highlights are surfing deserted 4ft point breaks in Mexico with only one other surfer (Tom Curren), boat charters in the Southern Maldivian Atolls, sharing empty Indonesian line-ups with Manta Rays and Tiger sharks and being barrelled 4 times on one wave at 6ft Supertubes / J-Bay. Meeting locals, experiencing different cultures and foods and the countless barrels have made me feel that what I do isn’t just a job – it’s a passion. I love what I do and arrange travels as if I was the person travelling.
I started with Island Holidays at the beginning of 2016. Since then, I've gained a lot of knowledge in the industry and have had the opportunity to plan many wonderful holidays for my clients to beautiful destinations as well as a little get-away for myself! I've been to destinations around Europe, across the ditch to Australia and spent a month travelling around the beautiful Islands of Samoa! The next destinations will be Fiji in late 2016 and Indonesia in 2017.
One of my favourite destinations is Samoa – throwing coconuts in blowholes, swimming with the turtles, sliding down the Papasea sliding rocks, tasting the beautiful cuisine, mixing with the friendly locals, swimming in the To Sua Ocean Trench and most of all - cracking open a Vailima beer on Lalomanu beach at midnight on a sand chair, with waves crashing and the sky sparkling.
I am looking forward to more adventures that will grow my knowledge in the industry and helping clients plan amazing surf trips to beautiful destinations whether with friends or family!
I love to travel! Being English, I’ve had Europe right on my doorstep my whole life. I have travelled to many countries within Europe and now want to expand my knowledge on the other side of the world. My favourite hobby and travel passion is skiing! I have been skiing in the South of France every year since I was 8 and the magic of this never wears off.
One of my favourite experiences whilst travelling was exploring Florence, Italy, on a vintage Vespa and taking in all the culture. Off to tropical Fiji shortly and hopefully some snow-time in Japan or Canada next year! I can’t wait to learn more within my job and help people plan their perfect getaways.
