I enjoy everything connected to travel. As travelers, we all love to see new places, experience the culture, food, architecture and landscapes of a destination. But for me, a trip begins with the first thought of ''Where to next?'' I relish in the planning, research and organization of a holiday. I even love packing my suitcase!

Therefore I cannot think of a better role in life, than the one I have at Routescape.
Routescape creates exceptional journeys across Great Britain and Ireland. We strive to provide an unmatched tailored service delivering an authentic luxury travel experience with a true sense of place. I look forward to creating your next adventure with you.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We create exceptional journeys across Great Britain and Ireland. These isles are truly inspiring filled with hidden treasures and remarkable backroads to be discovered. Our collection of handpicked luxury hotels and inns are amongst the best in Great Britain and Ireland. Whatever your accommodation preferences, all offer the most comfortable stay, genuine warm hospitality and extraordinary food in the most scenic locations."

How did you get involved in travel?

"After living in France for a number of years running a horse riding holiday centre, I moved back to the UK to live in the beautiful county of Pembrokeshire, Wales. Here I looked after the day to day operations of a leading luxury country house hotel as the General Manager. The opportunity to lead the travel team at Routescape draws upon my passions for authentic travel and extraordinary hotels and inns."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Seldom am I lost for words, but after driving for days through the Red Centre of Australia, when I caught a glimpse of 'Uluru' Ayers Rock on the horizon, I was rendered speechless. I remember the song on the radio at the time, seeing the snoozing faces of the people I was travelling with who had all been searching the road ahead for this iconic sight. For just a few seconds the view was just mine before the vehicle erupted with excitement from all my friends! "
