For as long as I can remember travelling and adventure has been in my blood. It's run through my veins and kept my zest for life alive.
I was lucky enough to have experienced many different family adventures growing up. From jumping into the ocean in Turkey, climbing waterfalls in Jamaica to watching snake charmers in Indian markets.
Little did I realise at the time that these adventures and experiences were shaping my personality to become the person I am today. I am fun, fearless, kind, generous, ambitious and I treat every individual as an equal. It's also taught me to value everything the world has to offer and embrace different cultures and new experiences. I find the good in anything I do. I find travel adventure good for the soul and one of the most important aspects to develop knowledge, understanding and of course imagination.
At the age of 21 my mind craved excitement. My feet couldn't stay on the ground much longer. My wanderlust personality decided I needed to embark on my own escapade and off I went on my own to Thailand, Australia and Singapore. I swam like a mermaid whilst deep sea diving the barrier reef, I encountered sharks, I climbed high buildings and embraced every opportunity that came my way.
Upon my return I met Arwyn, who later became my husband. My enthusiasm for adventure and travel was ignited in him. We enjoyed many great adventures together from climbing Mt Kilimanjaro (we got engaged there), getting thrills from various roller coasters in Disneyland and LA, Partying in Las Vegas, hopping along Hollywood's walk of fame to driving around the beautiful green island of Kauai on our honeymoon.
We are so passionate for travelling and having fun that our wedding was travel themed, allowing our guests to feel like they had been on their own adventure with us.
We now have 2 daughters. Eva who is 3 and Ophelia who is 12 weeks. We knew that having children would never stop us travelling. Eva experienced her first great adventure to Turkey at 6 months old and Ophelia was even younger, travelling to Australia at just 5 weeks old. We want our children to grow up feeling like nothing can hold them back. We try to teach them to try anything once and that fun can be found in any small opportunity.
Our holidays are always action packed. We like to seize the day and live in the moment. We grab every opportunity with both hands. Wherever we are we always embrace the culture and customs whether that be through food or activities, and we always make an effort to get to know the locals.
Our perfect adventure holiday could be anywhere in the world. We will make it the greatest escape wherever we are. Our imaginations will have us sailing the seas in search of pirates, hunting for buried treasure on the beach, surfing the waves pretending we are dolphins, searching for fairies in lucious greenary and exploring every weird and wonderful architecture as if we were Indiana Jones. As long as we are together we will always have an adventure.
