A Little Bit About Sally

I first started travelling at the age of 16 where I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks travelling through Europe. The "itchy feet" syndrome soon took hold - having finished school in Australia I relocated to the UK for a few years working in pubs and backpackers. During that time I managed to take advantage of many different travel opportunities which led me to working in the travel industy. One of my favourite experiences so far would have been walking the Inca Trail and looking over Machu Picchu at sunrise.

- What is your favourite destination?

Argentina... for the food and wine :-) 

- What has been the most surprising destination you've been to?

Bali, Indonesia - it has got a bit of everything. The people are beautiful and so friendly and if you get out into the smaller villages away from the more touristy areas you can have a completely different and authentic experience!!

- What has been your favourite or most memorable occasion whilst travelling?

Rio Carnival was a pretty wild experience so many amazing colourful costumes and people. One big party with thousands of people invited!! 

- Where is THE next destination on your list?

Tajikistan

- What is your one piece of advice for future overlanders? 

Be open to new and different experiences and push yourself out of your comfort zone.
