Having worked in travel for over 10 years I’ve been lucky enough to visit all the continents except Antarctica (which is definitely on the list!) but there is something that keeps drawing me back to South East Asia - ever since first stepping off the ‘plane in Bangkok as a recently-graduated student back in the 1990s.  It’s hard to know what exactly it is, the mouth-watering food available both on the streets and in the restaurants or the miles of stunning coastline across the region, the orang-utans hanging out in Borneo or the awe-inspiring temples rising out of the jungles in Angkor Wat, or even the temple-studded plains of Burma, but they all play a part in drawing me back. All that without even mentioning the warm-hearted and sincere welcome you receive from the locals.

It’s hard to pick a favourite place but Danum Valley in the Sabah region of Malaysian Borneo really is special.  As the only area of virgin rainforest in the region it feels like you’re staying in the Lost World. After spending the day trekking through the forest with the peerless local guides on the look-out for the Old Man of Borneo swinging through the trees or any number of hornbills taking flight, to return to the Lodge and sit back and await the chorus of 6 O’clock cicadas, monkey-chatter and birdsong is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Unless you’re lucky enough to go back which I definitely hope I will be.

I was a Regent Tours Manager for the Baltic States and Russia for many years starting back in 1995. As a Russian and Soviet Studies graduate, I have always been fascinated by this vast country and love discovering something new on every return visit. One of my favourite Regent tours is the Great Siberian Sayan Ring and I heartily recommend including a visit to Siberia or at least seeing more than just the major cities when travelling in Russia  - being in the wide open space of the tundra, picnicking beside shimmering birch trees and visiting provincial towns is to experience the real Russia. One of my most memorable trips was an incredible journey along the Trans-Siberian Railway with my family. My travel advice for this epic journey? Don't try and keep up with the Russians when vodka drinking!

In 2009, I led Regent’s inaugural tour to Kosovo and was overwhelmed by the generous hospitality of the local people. More recent travel adventures have taken me to Iceland – one of my favourite ever destinations. Iceland is simply one of the most visually stunning countries I have visited with its thundering waterfalls, ice-filled lagoons, fjords edged with steep, flat-topped mountains and jagged glacier tongues. And how I can forget the northern lights? What an amazing, awe-inspiring spectacle.

Travel has always been in my blood. Having been born and brought up in Hong Kong I boarded my first long-haul flight aged 6 months. I spent my childhood being taken to exotic, off the beaten track destinations by my parents and as I grew older my desire to explore the world only increased.

I knew that a career in travel was for me when I returned from backpacking around Japan, South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. If I could provide amazing travel experiences and memories for others, like the ones I had, then why would I want to do anything else? It’s a treat every day to be able to share my passion with others.

Recently I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to embark on a fly-drive around Route 1, the ring road circling Iceland. A country that I am completely in awe of. It beggars belief that around every corner there is a new and equally spectacular waterfall, lava field or glacier to feast your eyes upon. It’s hard to put into words how breathtakingly beautiful the scenery is, how friendly the people are and how fascinating the history, geology and nature of Iceland is. A particular highlight of mine was travelling down the south coast and visiting Reynisfjara black sand beach and Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, never have I experienced anything quite like it. There is so much more to Iceland than the northern lights!
