Travel has always been my passion and there is no better feeling than fulfilling someone’s dream to travel on a day to day basis at Regent Holidays. Having worked in the travel industry now for a number of years, I have been extremely fortunate to have visited many incredible countries.

Most recently I travelled to Borneo in June 2019 and fell in love with this incredible country. I explored the buzzing capital, Kota Kinabalu, visited the young orangutans at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, and spent several days exploring Kinabatangan River in search of rainforest wildlife.

The wildlife you can see in Borneo is unprecedented. We saw orangutans, proboscis monkeys, hornbills, many types of birds, a crocodile. One of the highlights was definitely our guide stopping the boat for tea and biscuits while we waited for pygmy elephants to hopefully make an appearance! As with much of Asia, going with the flow results in some of the most special experiences that you wouldn’t get anywhere else, and this was a classic example of that.

My more recent travel experiences with Regent Holidays took me to the Azores for a second time, where we explored the far-flung island of Flores. Unfortunately, strong winds extended our stay for a few days, but it gave us the opportunity to enjoy windswept coastal walks. I just love the colours and amazing sea views on the Azores.

I also enjoyed a few days in the far north of Finnish Lapland, where I met many of Lapland's furry residents - the husky and reindeer! Lapland is just an amazing place for arctic winter activities such as snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing, and swimming for the brave!

During my recent journey, my colleagues and I drove around Iceland's famous ring road stopping off to see various hotels and indulge in relaxing sessions at geothermal spas and lagoons. Spending some time in North Iceland was a true highlight for me, where we enjoyed whale watching on wintry seas.
