I completed a Travel & Tourism course at Sixth Form after completing work experience in a high street agency. I then began my career in travel as an apprentice for Thomas Cook in 2016. I joined Destina Travel in November 2019 and have loved the difference in holidays we sell and the variety of enquiries we are faced with on a daily basis.


Places visited:

Thailand (Bangkok & Hua Hin), Egypt (Hurghada & Sharm El Sheikh), Portugal, Krakow, Lanzarote, Turkey, Prague, Cyprus, Majorca, Menorca, Mainland Spain, Zante, Kos, Belgium, Paris, and Dublin.


Favourite Destination:

One of my favourite destinations is Vilamoura in The Algarve. I have visited multiple times and love spending time on the marina in one of the many restaurants or bars. I also fell in love with Bangkok when I visited in May 2023. There is so much to see and do and the people are so friendly.


Travel tip:

Now we have left the EU, roaming charges are likely to be different for many people. If you are looking to use your phone abroad, always check with your network provider that you will be able to do this without incurring extra costs. You can always look at getting a sim card locally or an e-sim before travelling too.


Where next?

I’d love to explore more of Southeast Asia.
