About

“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! 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. 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.”
