My mantra is never stop moving. From salsa dancing in Cuba to the learning the Saga in Mauritius – I never skip a beat. I’m drawn by new cultures – their art, music and food are what excites me and keeps my suitcase by the door.

I love to dive. I got my Padi in Koh Tao and have never looked up at the surface since. I’ve swum with sharks in Langkawi, through shipwrecks off the coast of the Perhentian Islands and amongst the turtles in the Gili Islands of Indonesia. When I’m land bound, I’m swinging with the orangutans in Borneo, climbing volcanos in Bali and watching the sunrise at Angkor Wat, with a sense of adventure that will always keep me coming back to Asia.

What my guests have said

"I just wanted to let you know we are home and we had the BEST trip ever! Everything you organized was high quality and better than expected. I'd like to personally say thank you - you did an amazing job!"

"We had an amazing time, I can't thank you enough."

Travel nuggets

  • Although a pair of leach socks may be rather unattractive, they will make your experience of trekking through the spectacular Borneo rainforest much more attractive! Don't forget to pack them!

  • Never forget to look up at the night sky wherever you are in Asia. The chances are it will be one of the most memorable experiences of your trip!

  • Early starts may feel unbearable on vacation, but these usually turn into the best days. Don't miss an enchanting sunrise at Angkor Wat, or the animals awakening with the morning dew on the Kinabatangan River.

  • Be careful what delicious edible treats you have in your bag when exploring the temples of Angkor or the Monkey Forest in Ubud, you never know who's furry fingers may be ready to pounce.
