I first joined Regent Holidays in 1987, having graduated from Bristol Polytechnic with a Business Studies with Tourism HND, back in the days of the USSR, telex machines and electric typewriters! There were only 6 of us in the Bristol office in those days and with no internet to dip into for information, it was more important than ever to gain first-hand experience and knowledge of our destinations.
Over the years I have worked in every department at Regent Holidays, from sales and marketing to operations and administration and have had the privilege and pleasure to visit many Regent destinations from China, Vietnam and Cambodia to Albania, Russia and Bosnia Herzegovina. I have also lived in the USA in Illinois and California and have travelled to 28 out of the 52 states, so travel has become part of my DNA! However, it’s the destinations in Regent’s Iceland & The Arctic portfolio that have attracted me of late. Iceland is a firm favourite, as it feels like you’re on the edge of the earth and in 2016 I was captivated by the beauty and tranquillity of Nuuksio National Park in Finland.
