I started with Explore when I was still in College, I helped in the Finance team and was then offered a permanent position, this was the first time I had ever worked in an office and absolutely loved the product and people I was working with.
In 2011 I was given the opportunity to go to Thailand as a training trip, this would be the first time I travelled without my parents and at 21, that was a very scary experience, but it was the most amazing experience I have ever had. The tour ran so smoothly and I had so much fun seeing the country learning about the culture and people. The group was also fantastic and we had such a laugh together and gelled so quickly.
I am very exciting to be traveling to Costa Rica very soon, and then Iceland. Two very different countries. It’s fair to say I have caught to travelling bug and want to visit as many countries as I can.
I learnt the hard way when I travelled to Thailand to pack light, half the stuff you take with you, you won’t actually use, so be clever when packing and think ‘will I actually need this’?
