Travelling to new places has always been a fascination for me, and ever since I can remember, whenever time and budget permits, I go! Perhaps it was the summers spent exploring France as a child, or maybe the hours spent daydreaming as I watched the planes out of the window – either way, it was perhaps inevitable that I landed up working in travel.
I have worked for over 25 years in the industry – everything from Campsite Courier to Passenger Service Agent at Gatwick to Reservations Manager for a villa specialist. But the attraction of being able to tailor bespoke holidays worldwide for clients, led me in 1998 to the world of independent retail, and I’ve never looked back. I joined the team here at Ashdown in 2005 and happily, I still get great pleasure in creating the ideal itinerary for a client.
I was recently invited by the Nevis Tourism Authority to join a small group of agents to discover the island of Nevis, one of the jewels of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. Easily accessible by 10 minute water taxi
