I am the newest member of the team, only starting in September 2022. Before joining the world of travel, I was a teacher for 20 years. I have always loved travelling, as well as learning about the history and culture of other countries as it is literally a big world out there!

So when the opportunity arose to join the team in Barnard Castle I jumped at the chance to apply my skills from teaching alongside my History and Geography degree to the world of travel. I am thoroughly enjoying working as part of a great team and learning the ropes.

Favourite destination:

That is a tough one as each destination has wonderful memories as I have either been with my children and family, friends, colleagues or on my teaching stint in China.

Iceland was fantastic! my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Blue Lagoon, indulging in treatments and going on the Golden Circle tour. Exploring China, whilst teaching out there for 6 months, was just out of this world! I was lucky enough to visit the Summer Palace, the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square, the Terracotta Army, and the Yangtze River – to name just a few. But I do love the Greek islands, sailing in and out of bays, finding hidden spots and Tavernas! 

Last holiday:

To sunny Tenerife in Winter, really loved Costa Adeje, walking the coastline, pilot whale spotting on a boat trip and visiting Mount Tiede and the National Park.

 

 

Where next:

Since starting at Kyle Travel my bucket list is getting longer and longer!

 

I would love to visit and explore Canada and Prince Edward Island, Australia, New Zealand. A cruise to the Norwegian Fjords and more sailing around the Greek islands, Italy and Croatia would be fantastic for future adventures too.
