After studying Travel & Tourism at college Lauren’s first job was working at a very busy Heathrow airport for 3 years as a Passenger Services Agent. She then moved to Lanzarote for a couple of years and worked as a representative and in the hospitality industry. Lauren has now worked in the travel industry for 17 years and during this time has extensively travelled throughout South-east Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. She has also been lucky enough to travel throughout South Africa with side visits to Botswana and Zimbabwe. All done with just her backpack and travel books to guide her!

Lauren S's Top Travel Experiences

  • Island hopping between the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands, Fiji
  • Seeing the changing colours of Ayers Rock at sunset and sunrise
  • Taking a Helicopter Ride over the Great Barrier Reef
  • Seeing the Grizzly Bears at Knight Inlet Lodge, Vancouver Island
  • Overnight Cruise on Doubtful Sound, New Zealand
  • Climbing Cradle Mountain, Tasmania (only half way though!)

My Favourite Place

It has to be New Zealand also known as 'the land of the long white cloud'. Although a long journey to get there it is the best journey I've ever made. The scenery is ever changing and just breathtaking. From the majestic snow capped Southern Alps to Maori villages there is so much to see and experience. To me it's the most beautiful place on earth!
