I discovered from the tender age of 10 that travel would be my lifelong hobby when I did my first trip with my grandpa to Guilin, China. Since then I have left footprints on 45 countries, most of them in Europe and Asia! I especially love Europe because it offers everything that a traveller needs – delicious cuisine in Italy, outdoor adventure in Iceland, amazing history in Eastern Europe and fashion in London, Milan and Paris.

Rachael Mendizabal

Growing up in Australia, the rest of the world seemed so far away. I used to look at old atlases to discover as much as I could. Luckily, I've since had the opportunity to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat, hike the Inca Trail in Peru and run the footrace track in ancient Olympia. It's incredible experiences like these that fuel my passion for discovering places near and far. The feeling of walking the sacred hill to the Acropolis for the first time or climbing the towers to the ancient wall in Dubrovnik, stay with you long after returning home. I can't wait to share everything I've learned throughout my travels with you.

Europe has so many different countries to explore and is so easily accessible, both in travel time and for families or adventurous couples. It’s the perfect destination for me to sell, having always been a lover of languages and cultural nuances – I’m spoilt for choice with just one continent! I love the Italians – so unique and vivacious; the lifestyle in Spain with siestas and late night shopping; and Crete for its stunning colour palette of turquoise seas, olive groves and whitewashed villas with bright blue shutters.

The best feeling for me is the night before a holiday when you can’t sleep because you're too excited counting down the last hours before you're off on a new adventure! Having travelled to so many beautiful and wonderful destinations across Europe I love the fact that I can create this feeling for my guests too!

Claire Medlock

I've always had a passion for languages and different cultures - and growing up I always wanted to emulate my Mum’s exotic sounding travels. A year at university in the south of France, as well as subsequent time spent working in Italy and the Pyrenees, left me convinced I had to find a career that would allow me to incorporate my love of travel in Europe. Some of my favourite experiences in Europe are the simplest – a candlelit dinner in a tiny Argentine restaurant in Lisbon, finding deserted beaches in Mallorca or simply enviously people-watching the uber-stylish Danes in Copenhagen.

Connie Ngai

“Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times” is the motto that motivates me to spend much of the time on the road. I fell in in love with Europe – its rich history, charming little towns tucked away in the mountains, the historic architecture and art pieces…and I absolutely love Spain for their delicious local delicacies!

Emma Jones

Although Europe is on our doorstep, travelling through its diverse landscapes and cities has really allowed me to surround myself with new environments and immerse myself in new ways of life. For me, Iceland is one of the most spectacular countries in the world – a real land of contrasts, crammed with a stunning mix of landscapes created by both fire and ice. It’s the perfect destination to visit if you like to feel inspired by nature. In total contrast, I love the countries of Southern Europe, Italy in particular, for its rich history and cultural heritage, and of course its delicious food and fantastic climate!

Faye Compton

I have always loved travelling, I was lucky enough to go on many family holidays to wonderful destinations from a very young age and the travel bug really embedded itself back then. Europe is such an amazing continent and great for all ages. I absolutely love Italy, with its stunning lakes and amazing history but a firm favourite of mine is Greece, it's hard to beat those crystal clear waters!

Gwen Nicol

The youngest of three, I've always had the desire to fully experience life and be on-the-go. After graduating from college, my wanderlust led me to a summer of backpacking through thirteen countries across Europe. I’m always thinking about what’s next. One of my recent vacations in Croatia was an all-time family favorite. We spent two weeks sailing around the spectacular, clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. Eating fresh seafood and meeting Croatian families were some of my top highlights.

Hannah Ingle

The culture of Europe has always captured my imagination, from its incredible art to its rich history and magnificent architecture, there is so much to discover, and right on our doorstep. My highlights of Europe include catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights in Finland, exploring the palaces of Istanbul and galloping across the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. For me, Italy has it all. With its incredible cuisine, fascinating history and monumental buildings, I could simply never get bored there.

Hannah Zhao

Exploring new places has always been a passion. I started my travels in my home country China, then gradually expanded the road map during my university years when I was studying abroad in the United Kingdom, that’s when I got a chance to really explore Europe in depth.

Jessica Hayes

My interest or more appropriately obsession with travel started as soon as I was old enough to hold an Atlas, I have been fortunate to have travelled many countries and cover every continent. However Europe remains a true passion for me, the people, the sights and the food! With my partner as a Chef food is something top of the list when travelling, be it local favourites or three star Michelin restaurants, Europe has it all for a foodie's holiday.

Milly Walker

I have always been a keen traveller and was lucky enough to go to some pretty impressive places while I was growing up. I think that because Europe is so close it is often overlooked as an amazing holiday destination with so many different options on offer. A city break to Rome or Barcelona can be a fantastic weekend away. An exhilarating trip to Iceland to see the Northern Lights is incredible too. While for a relaxed beach holiday, there is the beauty of the Greek Island of Mykonos… what more could you want?!

Pippa Carey

Despite having travelled around the world, I truly believe you can't beat Europe. We are so lucky to have such a diverse and beautiful continent right on our doorstep! From indulging in the world famous wine and cheese of the south of France to the exploring the exquisite architecture of Andalucia, Europe is an incredible place and I am always planning my next adventure on the continent.

Ria Santamaria

I plan my holidays to maximise any experience and the quality time they allow me to spend with my husband and children. I grew up in Manila, raised my family in Singapore and spent three years in London. Having travelled across Europe, including recent trips to Italy and Greece, as well as experiencing the iconic Carnevale de Venice and walking the Camino de Santiago, I am passionate about crafting the most unforgettable trips on this amazing continent.

Serena Moore

I have always wanted to explore as many places as possible and love to travel off the beaten track. Growing up I was lucky enough to travel through Europe, spending time in Prague, Budapest, Italy, Greece and France to name a few. For me the most wonderful part of travelling is seeing all the wonders the world has to offer and no matter who many places you see, there is always more to explore!

Xinying Lin

The travel bug has hit me hard during the recent years. After travelling to different countries of Europe, I realise that this continent has so much diversities to offer. From the fascinating history to the gorgeous lake to the lovely architecture, my personal favourites now are Croatia and Switzerland.
