A bit About Me

When I was 17, having saved up from my part time jobs crammed in between schoolwork, I decided to travel from the southern tip of Spain to the most northerly point of Norway, all on an inter-rail pass bought from STA Travel, all for £10 a day, on my own. Meeting new people along the way, sharing stories about our adventures was inspiring. I realised just how exhilarating and fulfilling travelling is.

Before starting University, I decided to travel through Japan, South Korea and China by train. The culture, food and atmosphere were unbelievable. The smells from the street markets and discovering hidden gems of restaurants in the nooks and crannies of the bustling city were to die for.

I live and breathe travelling and the sheer exhilaration it provides. I’m going into my 2nd term now as an STA Travel Brand ambassador and love the role, and the opportunities I get to discuss people’s potential travels and helping them achieve their dreams with STA Travel.
