I was lucky enough to be introduced to world travel at a very young age. I’ve now visited more countries than I’ve had years living on this fabulous planet! Three years ago I fell in love with Africa as I trekked for gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, bonded with local school children in Kibale, and witnessed 55 elephants migrating at sunset in Queen Elizabeth National Park.
In Kenya I saw hundreds of thousands of wildebeests begin their migration across the Maasai Mara River, partook in traditional dance celebrations of the Maasai tribe, and enjoyed sundowners in the open bush as a tower of giraffes grazed nearby. My passion for travel extends far beyond my own experiences and I love to inspire others to go out and discover new cultures.
Through family vacations, group excursions and exploring on my own I’ve racked up trips to every continent except Antarctica. Fear not penguins, I'm coming for you soon.
Favourite places I've been
- Get on top of your jetlag by setting your watch to your destination's local time when you board your plane. Watch movies for the entire flight or grab a cheeky snooze halfway through, but it'll definitely make a difference.
- Bring at least one outfit or accessory that makes you feel like a rock star. On safari you should wear muted tones but at dinner you can glam it up.
- Embrace technology. I always make the effort to snag the email or Facebook of someone I connected with on my trip (guides, locals or fellow travelers) so we can keep in touch. It makes your experience even more meaningful.
