    Our Travel Expert

    After a 10-year career in the financial services I eventually bit the bullet and left the UK to embark on a three month journey. I travelled to South America, fulfilling some of my childhood dreams. I went to work overseas for the award-winning experts, Kuoni Travel, taking up positions in Switzerland, Egypt and the Maldives, where I worked on a total of 8 resorts before a couple of years of working back in the UK in the product division at Kuoni HQ.

    Returning to the Maldives for a short time, my work took me back to Sri Lanka, where I have remained now for the last five years and regard it as my adopted home!

    Working with clients, I love to impart my knowledge and lead people in their pursuit of discovery! There is so much to see and do in Sri Lanka, many clients return year after year to re-visit a special place or discover new secret hideaways.
