Heather’s passion for travel began while she was studying photography. During her study she embarked on extended trips across Europe and Indonesia. Initially intent on travel photography, she spent 12 months on a world journey before realising that a career in travel, sending people on trips of a lifetime, was the way forward. Camera in hand, Heather has hiked the Peruvian Inca Trail and Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, dived the beautiful waters of Sipadan and the Gili Islands and taken a heli-hiking trip on Mount McKinley in Alaska.
