About

<p>“Travel has been my passion for as long as I can remember and my specialist subject is the weird and wonderful world of dark tourism. I’ve been in the travel industry since I was 18 and working at Explore for six years. Explore operate 600 trips to over 100 countries and I manage the European cultural group trips, which I love and the more quirky the better!<br /> When I think of travelling in Europe I dream about mouth-watering food, captivating history and contrasting cultures, combined with abandoned architecture and urban exploration. I have a particular interest in unusual destinations, rock music, Brutalist architecture and bizarre history.<br /> I’ve been lucky enough to travel extensively through Europe. An experience that will stay with me forever is wandering through the thick snow in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone where I spent my 30th birthday and then getting engaged whilst on a frozen hilltop in Kiev.”</p>
