I have been with STA Travel for...
2 years.

My most recent holiday was...
An epic round the world trip that claimed me an extra 24 stamps for my passport.  I safaried, backpacked and worked my way through Africa, Europe and North America.  Hands down, one of the most memorable trips of my life!

I love travel because...
It makes people happy.  Nothing is more rewarding than having a passenger come back to me after a trip and say “that was the best trip ever”.

My perfect round the world trip...
Backpacking through South America and catching an expedition down to Antarctica.  Then flying up to the UK to take the train from London to Singapore.  That's the dream!

The most interesting travel itinerary I've organised was...
Yours.

My best culinary experience was...
Sampling authentic Italian food in Tuscany.  It really made me realise how truly simple, fresh and flavoursome Italian cuisine is.

I can't travel without...
My roaming SIM card.  Data comes in really handy when you wander off the beaten track in an unfamiliar city.

My hot travel tip is...
Always plan what you want to do in each destination before you start looking into your flights.  Take it from me, the flights are the easy bit and we can make them work regardless of how crazy your travel plans are!  So what'll it be?  Want to spot the big 5 in Africa?  Run with the bulls in Pamplona?  Trek through the Andes?  Check out a music festival in Europe?  Let you imagination run wild – The world is at your fingertips! 

Best travel memory is...
When I walked alongside wild lions in Zambia – After I gathered my nerves of course!

In 20 or so years, my plan is to take 2 years off, and re-live all the best experiences I have had around the world. I'm hoping that within 20 years i'll have figured out how to pay for such an epic trip?!

The most interesting Itinerary travel I've organised was...
I still remember when I first met one of my clients. He told me his budget, [quite significant], told me he wanted to get away and his time frame...and told me to "surprise him"...So I did! In a nutshell it was an adventure/ relax/ adventure/ relax/ adventure etc... Round the world trip! He told me the reason he booked with me, though he approached lot of agents, was not the price, but the originality.

My best culinary experience was...
I have a top 3...can't choose:
1.Beating snakes heart/blood/rice wine shot in Vietnam. Not for the taste, just for the fact that I did it [could feel it beating down by throat]
2.Fish Head Curry in Singapore...seriously...don't knock it till you have tried it...AMAZING!
3.Fugu in Japan, only had a little bit but our tongue started tingling and we freaked out and though we were going to die...apparently this is meant to happen haha...You choose..

I can't' travel without...
my laptop! Has hours of entertainment, you know...for those looooong bus/trip/plane trips!

My hot tip Travel Tip...
always take a power board...for the everyday man on the go...how much does it suck when you have to share an outlet or find one in the first place!!?...and for bigger emergency...always carry tissues...you never know what you may need them for...
