What drew you to the travel industry?

My passion for skiing was the catalyst for my initial foray in to the travel industry. I then spent four years working in the city, doing a job I didn’t really like, before waking up, smelling the coffee and letting my passions drive my career! I love working in an industry that I genuinely connect with and one that allows me to create life affirming experiences for other people.

What is your favourite DTWE Destination?

Costa Rica – the sheer level of bio-diversity in such a small country blew me away! One of my most memorable travel moments was kayaking through the mangroves of Tortuguero in Costa Rica, whilst keeping caiman at arm’s length in the water and spotting sloths, monkeys, toucans and iguanas in the trees!

What is your top tip for organising the best school trip possible?

Plan well ahead (18 months ideally) and take the time to speak to your Travel Specialist. Whilst it might be difficult to find time for a call in the first instance, it will make for a much more efficient trip planning process and save you lots of time in the long run!

How do you like to spend your time when you're travelling?

Hiking with my kid in a rucksack, taking photos and doing everything I can to avoid sunbathing.

What is your must-pack item?

The right plug adaptor!
