Some of Lauren’s favourite travel experiences include travelling around New Zealand by motorhome, whale watching on Canada’s West Coast and hiking along Australia's famous Great Ocean Road. Lauren has also visited Iceland and the world famous Icehotel in Swedish Lapland.
- Watching the sunrise in The Kimberley, the light beating down on the red sandstone cliffs and the tidal waters sparkling below, one of my favourite parts of Australia - remote, rugged and spectacular!
- Observing the mighty grizzly bears catching salmon in Katmai National Park, Alaska.
- Exploring Abel Tasman National Park by kayak and being joined by some rather inquisitive New Zealand fur seals.
- The first sighting of a polar bear mother and cub in the Canadian Arctic... breathtaking!
- Hearing the amazing roar of water and getting soaked on a Maid of the Mist Cruise at Niagara Falls.
- Discovering Australia’s West Coast by motorhome, travelling from Perth to Shark Bay.
