Programme Manager – Walking and Trekking
Favourite holiday destination?
The Himalaya. From Pakistan to Tibet, they are quite simply one of the most beautiful places on earth and I find being among the world’s highest mountains an incredibly uplifting experience. The people of the Himalaya are also very special – hardy, warm, spiritual and somehow timeless
Where would you like to go next?
Iran – I’ve wanted to go for years but for political reasons whether you can go there has waxed and waned. At the moment it is very much open! I’ve heard nothing but positive accounts from other people and to me it fills in the gap between the cultures of Asia and the Middle East- fascinating!
Best piece of travel advice?
Always try and fit some walking into your travel plans. Whether you’re in a city or a remote rural location, being on foot allows you to really get under the skin of a country. It’s so much easier to interact with the locals and your connection with the landscape is immediate and intimate.
