Sophie’s passion for travel began at a young age, with family trips taking her as far afield as Thailand and Australia. Indeed, she counts the iconic cities of Melbourne and Sydney – along with New Zealand’s epic landscapes – as some of her favourite destinations. Upon completing her degree, Sophie went on to develop her love of European travel. A three-month-long Interrail trip saw her hop between the Greek islands, taste her way through Croatia’s wines and seafood, watch the sunset creep over Italy’s Lake Garda and amble through the picturesque towns of southeastern France. It was only natural that she started a career in travel, in which she’s gained extensive experience in organising luxury holidays. So, ask Sophie about everything from snorkelling with turtles off a private Maldivian island to cycling around Hoi An’s old town in Vietnam and sampling the local rum punch in the Caribbean.
