India & Africa Specialist
Family holidays for Kate mainly consisted of windswept weeks in North Cornwall, so international travel came as a more mature passion. Having spent a year surfing her way up the east coasts of both South Africa and Australia aged 18, a genuine interest in seeking out far flung corners of the earth began. In 2016, as part of her Masters programme Kate spent 6 months living in Aceh, Indonesia, researching female religious teachers in this strongly Islamic society. Through her natural curiosity to learn and understand other cultures and viewpoints, she developed a diverse range of friendships which left a lasting impact and encouraged her to pursue a career in travel.
Kate’s main passions include cooking and hiking, which have come to her through travel. Her interest in food really started whilst backpacking through Malaysia and Indonesia - attempts to emulate the perfect Sambal Oolek and the street food of Georgetown are ongoing! Hiking has taken Kate to the volcanic mountains of Indonesia and to the dizzy heights of Everest Base Camp.
Life for Kate is divided between ‘before and after’ India as it is (one of) her most favourite destinations, purely for its vibrancy, eclectic cultures and unashamed madness! She has had a busy past few months travelling around Rajasthan and North India, Botswana, Zimbabwe, South Africa and most recently Nepal.
