I am passionate about travel, cultures and exploring the world, and have been for as long as I can remember. This led me to a degree in Anthropology, and studies in French, German, Chinese and Japanese. After university I immediately moved abroad to the probably the most vibrant and craziest place in the world, Tokyo, where I lived for three awesome years – as well as road tripping all over the States and spending months exploring the incredible coastline of Western Australia in a VW camper. I love planning trips and organizing itineraries, although the best part is always dealing with those unforeseen surprises when you’re there!

I travel for...
I have whizzed down a zipwire in tropical Phillipine forests, gotten lost in my VW camper on the endless dirt roads of the Australian bush, lit incense in a deserted Buddhist temple hidden in the Japanese mountains, the list goes on! I love finding myself in situations I would never ever run into at home.
Without stating the obvious about how the weather in the UK is less than perfect(!), I love how travelling enables me to encounter the whole diverse range of climates the world has to offer us. From tropical rainy seasons, to lazy summer sunshine, to bitter winds and thick carpets of snow… experiencing the elements is a huge part of why I love to travel!
As an anthropologist I’m fascinated by other cultures and ways of life, and how people understand the world. One of the best things about working at Rickshaw Travel is that all our trips are self-led and give you the opportunity to be a “traveller” rather than a “tourist” – an invaluable way to experience a country through the eyes of the locals and have a truly authentic travel adventure – especially with the homestays!
