I’ve worked at Travel Nation since August 2014 but I was an intern here for a year before during my holidays. I grew up in rural Shropshire and moved south for university before discovering Travel Nation in sunny Brighton. I spend my time reading, playing my cello, cooking and thinking up new travel plans for the future!
University of Kent where I studied English and American Literature
Interning at Travel Nation and Rickshaw Travel
Reading or walking on the beach in the winter. Nothing better than fish and chips with a 99 on the beach, especially in winter when the tourists have all gone home!
Travelling with my husband in South America.
Western Australia - just wow. So many people ignore the west and only visit the east coast but they are missing out. Perfect beaches, tons of wildlife and fantastic weather - I could easily go back and do the exact same trip all over again!
My favourite band is First Aid Kit, although I also love The Cranberries. I am also a big Taylor Swift fan!
Such a tough choice but I think my favourite film is definitely ET, especially the cycling scene.
Vancouver Island or New Zealand - not too hot, lots of green & outdoorsy life, beautiful beaches and delicious food!
I went to Nepal when I was 17 to visit family friends, the first time I’d travelled beyond a couple of coach trips to Europe. It was such a special experience and introduced me to a world outside the UK – I’ve been trying to discover more and more of it since.
Hmm, I think anywhere in Western Australia, the north coast of New Caledonia and the Shropshire Hills, where I grew up.
I'm very lucky to have stayed at so many beautiful hotels, it's hard to choose. But I think a really special one was Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji - the welcome, hospitality and kindness of the Fijian people is second to none.
China. I waited in line in Bangkok for hours and hours to get my Chinese Visa so actually getting past the guards at the border felt like a victory! Or the Galapagos Islands, I still pinch myself when I remember I have been there.
I get really annoyed when my passport doesn’t get stamped properly – I like to be able to read the name of the places I’ve visited, not just have some smudgy inky mess!
I’d love to visit Patagonia, Belize and Japan. Those are just the tip of the iceberg though – my bucket list is pretty long.
Little Salmon Bay on Rottnest Island in Australia where my husband proposed!
A grotty bus station in Guangzhou, China at 4am on my 19th Birthday – we were trying to get to Hong Kong on the cheap but didn’t quite manage to make it in time for my birthday. By the time we arrived in Hong Kong it was the next day - we went to sleep and agreed to pretend it was my birthday when we woke up the following morning!
Either Seattle or Rio de Janeiro. Both amazing in totally different ways.
My family and proper British cheese!
