For as long as I can remember, travel has been a great passion of mine - every time I go away, I come back with an even bigger list of destinations I want to go to next! Having been able to spend many vacations abroad with both family and friends, my love for travel developed further when I spent six months traveling around South America and South East Asia.
Since then, I have continued to visit as many new places as possible from skiing in France, riding camels in the Moroccan desert, to scuba diving in the clear waters of Bali, and living and teaching in Thailand. Travel has allowed me to broaden my knowledge of different cultures, and to discover both the popular and hidden parts of countries across the world. I’m always looking for my next traveling adventure and with a huge list of places I still want to explore, I can’t wait for my upcoming trip to Sri Lanka.
What my guests have said
"As always, the Scott Dunn experience was great. I had to book our Morocco trip very last minute and Lily and Charlotte did a great job of pulling together a fantastic trip in a very short timeframe. The Scott Dunn experience, while expensive, is well worth it. The vacations are so much better being arranged by someone who has the knowledge. Lily and Charlotte were both great. Very professional and very efficient."
"Astounded by friendliness, knowledge and efficiency of Ms. Charlotte Boadle and Ms. Lily Cai. In this day and age of faceless internet mania it is very good to know and deal with people as good as them."
"Thank you Charlotte, now I have received everything! We are ready to leave for the airport and feel so relaxed because SCOTT DUNN has been at our side all the way through this planning process! Thank you kindly for wonderful help and suggestions and also for the way in which the emails were answered each time and also getting back to us so promptly. I will surely contact SCOTT DUNN before organising any trip in the future. I cannot praise you enough."
"Once the vacation was booked the aftercare from Charlotte was excellent in terms of making restaurant reservations for us and pre-booking tickets for the Coliseum and Vatican etc. Charlotte saved us a lot of time researching and lots of queuing!"
"Charlotte was very helpful and did not suggest I use the hotel concierge for organising my trips, instead she sent me information which allowed me to choose and pay for the trip before leaving on my break. This made my break so much more relaxing. She organized everything perfectly. Thank you Charlotte."
"Thank you both very much to Charlotte and Milly for your hard work. It was the best trip we have ever taken and we are still amazed at how seamless it was."
"The service from Charlotte and Katie at Scott Dunn was excellent."
"Katie and Charlotte are always helpful, responsive and great listeners."
"Both the young ladies I dealt with were knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Thank you Lily and Charlotte."
"Charlotte and Katie were most helpful throughout."
"Charlotte and Lily could not have been more efficient or helpful. Very efficient handling and good value for money."
Favourite places I've been
- Don’t be afraid to eat where the locals eat – the most delicious and authentic dishes are more often found in local markets. Jump out of your comfort zone and have a go at trying street food and avoid the smarter, more touristy restaurants.
- Sunrise at Angkor Wat – ensure a very early start to watch the sun rise up above Angkor Wat. A stunning experience to enjoy before the crowds descend.
- Meet the locals – after all, they know the destination best!
- Join in with local festivals in countries like Thailand, such as Songkran (Thai New Year) that is marked by the throwing and sprinkling of water, or Loi Krathong, where thousands of lanterns are released into the sky and candles are lit along the water.
