What drew you to the travel industry?

I have been fortunate enough to travel regularly throughout my life. Iceland is like a second home, which I visit several times a year. Prior to joining Discover the World Education I worked in various customer service and management roles. I have also completed a degree in geography and later an MBA. These experiences have made working in the school travel industry feel like a natural fit.

How do you spend your time when travelling?

Exploring, hiking, surfing and trying new food.

What is your memorable travel moment?

A snowmobile ride across the Icelandic Myrdalsjokull icecap, to then stand 200 metres away from the erupting Eyjafjallajokull; one of the most exciting experiences of my life!

What excursion or activity do you most recommend:

When it comes to Iceland, I always recommend getting off the beaten track! The number of tourists visiting Iceland has grown considerably in recent years. Whilst visitor number are still only very small when compared to other destinations, most travellers visit the same few attractions. You often only have to travel a few hundred metres to escape the crowds. There are plenty of hidden gems, which are equally if not more stunning than some of the well-known sites, just ask your Travel Specialist for their advice.
