My passion for travel started at a young age as I was lucky to travel to Greece and other parts of Europe frequently to visit family. After exploring new places, cultures, and languages I was determined to turn my passion for travel into my dream job. My love of the ocean led to a career as a dive travel consultant, specialising in bespoke liveabord and shore based trips worldwide. After a break from the travel industry I realised this is my true passion and I was lucky enough to join the Tropic Breeze team!
Memorable experiences: "Quad biking in Spetsas, Greece, zip lining in Montezuma, Costa Rica, and I won't forget scuba diving with curious Oceanic white tip Sharks in Egypt in a hurry!"
Favourite places: "Wow this is difficult! I’d have to say the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, truly one of the most beautiful and relatively untouched places in the world. It alone makes up 2.5 percent of the world's biodiversity."
Where to next: "Grenada - if can tear myself away from the beautiful Grand Anse Beach, I'd love to visit the underwater sculpture park and explore the rainforest, especially Annadale falls. After that, Petit St Vincent in The Grenadines to explore the stunning local dive sites which are teeming with abundant marine life."
Top Travel Tip: "Take a phrasebook and use it learn a few local phrases. Pack a tennis ball in your hand luggage, great for relieving stiff and sore muscles - roll it over your shoulders, lower back, legs, and the bottoms of your feet to help get your blood flowing again."
Can't live without: "Sunglasses, flip flops and a scarf, which makes for a great blanket if you get cold on the plane."
"I have been lucky enough to have been visiting the Caribbean from a young age as my family were keen sailors and would charter a catamaran in the Grenadines and BVI's - this is definitely where my love for the Caribbean began! Until now my career has been very different due to my passion for working with horses. I was a professional show rider and groom for many top teams, and was competing all over the country. While I thoroughly enjoyed my time working in the Equestrian business I wanted a change in career. When it came to deciding on a move, my love of travel was a deciding factor. It seemed only natural to join the team here at Tropic Breeze when the opportunity arose."
Memorable Experience: My most memorable experience would have to be bathing and feeding the elephants at a sanctuary in Thailand a few years ago!
Favourite Place: Either Barbados or Bequia.
Where next? Africa - I'd love nothing more than to go on safari!
Top Tips: If in the Caribbean, go sailing for the day! In my opinion, you cannot beat the feeling of the warm breeze, cocktail in hand and sound of reggae in the background.
Three things I cannot travel without: My phone, sunglasses and sun cream.
Top Travel Tips: Do your research before you travel, get an idea of what you want to see and do so that you don't miss out on anything - you may not get that opportunity again.
Three things I couldn’t travel without: Camera, swimwear and good company.
"I have been extremely lucky in seeing a lot of the world from an early age. I grew up in Hong Kong and spent family holidays visiting Malaysia and Thailand. Then upon completing university in the UK, I set sail working with Princess Cruises visiting the west coast of America and Canada, Alaska with regular trips down to Hawaii and the South Pacific. Having worked in so many great countries, I now look forward to sharing new adventures with my husband and son."
Memorable Experiences: "I have been so lucky that it is really hard to mention just a few. Catching and cooking Alaska King Crab and seeing wild Orcas playing in the wake of our boat on our way back to the airport at the end of our trip really were experiences I'll never forget."
Favourite Places: "Mo'orea in French Polynesia was simply breath taking, and definitely my idea of heaven!"
Where next: "I plan to return to the South Pacific in the future, in the meantime I look forward to travelling a little closer to home with a family trip to the lakes and mountains of Italy."
Top Travel Tips: "Don't leave packing your case until the morning of departure! A bad habit of mine which always makes the long journeys even more stressful when it can easily be avoided."
Three things I couldn't travel without: "Sun cream, a camera and a street map of the destination."
