"My most treasured memory of travelling would have to be waking up in the Andes Mountains to watch the sun rise over one of the 7 wonders of the World Machu Picchu. It was one of the most peaceful moments in my life and something that I have gone back to do a few more times to experience. Best to not read about this in a book or on google, this feeling can only be experienced first hand with your own eyes and ears. "
I started my journey of travel in my early twenties just up the east coast of Australia with a few friends and a 4wd, little was I to know that that small trip would be the start of something life changing for me, never to have my feet grounded and always looking for that feeling of discovery that travel brings.
I was lucky enough at the age of 21 to find myself an exciting opportunity of working on International Cruise Lines in the casino department. I spent my evenings on board working and my days were spent in a different country of the world everyday, exploring all they had to offer, different food, cultures and some of the most amazing sites and scenery from all continents. I knew from this job that my feet would never be grounded. After 7 years of working onboard I decided that I needed some land time. I spent time in Latin America travelling the continent and grew a passion for this amazing place.
I came back to Australia and decided that the career of wholesale travel was for me. It gave me opportunity to sell the destinations I had passion for and had travelled to many times. Ten years later I have never regretted this decision. My career takes me to the most amazing places in the world, gives me the chance to send my clients to these places and experience the world first hand rather than reading about them in a book. I have travelled through Latin America, the Caribbean Islands, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, and completed some of the worlds most famous treks with the Inca Trail and Mount Everest Base Camp being the highlights.
Now working for Chimu Adventures I still get this opportunity to pass on my first hand knowledge and experience to all the clients that decide to book with me. I always find that my clients appreciate the small details that I add to their itineraries and I am always receiving this positive feedback when my clients return from what is always the trip of a lifetime.
