I travel for...
A New Experience
Creating special memories, whether it’s with my friends or family there’s nothing better. I like to travel to a different place each time if possible but do like to revisit places that are special to me, such as Thailand. My fellow Rickshaw colleagues often make me jealous of their travels – Japan and South America are definitely on my wish list!
I’m a big foodie and like to try everything on holiday, even in Cuba which is not known for it’s cuisine. Staying in local casa’s, I was able to find some really tasty home cooked Cuban food – it’s plentiful and the owners love to treat their guests, which is just fine by me! Vietnamese is by far my favourite food, it’s flavoursome and so, so cheap. I really enjoyed my cooking class in Hoi An whilst watching the ancient centre lit up by the beautiful lanterns.
I enjoy interacting with new people and meeting the locals. I always find it interesting how other people live and work in different countries. I’ve been to countries where people earn very low wages but always have a smile on their faces. When I went to Africa, I was so touched by the friendliness of people despite having very little. I chose to sponsor a child and it’s one of the most rewarding things I have done.
What else do I do at Rickshaw?
As well as my role as a full-time Travel Specialist, I’m also part of the Meaningful Travel team.
Havana is one of Cuba's most iconic destinations, conjuring up images of salsa dancing, colourful houses of course - classic cars.
