Lola Pasquier

Lola was born in Paris to a French father of Pied Noir heritage and a half-English half-German mother. Raised between London and Paris and graduating from an international school, her world was multicultural from the get-go. Travelling across the globe, she nurtured her two biggest interests in life: exploring far flung places and eating her way around them! Her family life has always been centred around the kitchen, putting to use all those generations-old family recipes and many others picked up along the way. This is where her interest in cooking (and travelling on a quest to discover new food) began. During her studies Lola spent a year in Vienna, and it was here that she realised that she felt most at home immersed in new environments, and happiest when on the hunt for new things to experience. Pursuing a career in travel was the perfect excuse to fulfil her wanderlust.

In 2016 Lola spent seven weeks travelling back and forth between her two favourite destinations, Sri Lanka and India. Whilst she describes Sri Lanka as the perfect all-rounder destination and loves it for its serene beauty, laid back attitude and incredibly varied landscape, India still tops her list for “the most exhilarating, intoxicating and fabulously mad country!”. Japan is her most recent coup de foudre, attracted by the neon bright lights and almost spiritual juxtaposition of nature and art, and of course the fantastic food scene!

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
