I fell in love with travel accidentally. Growing up in the Peak District I was obsessed with hill climbing and dreamt that one day I would climb Everest. So I went to teach in Nepal, where the Himalayas would be within reach.
I think I must have been born with a love of travel embedded within me. As a little girl, I longed to travel to far-off lands. I finally got my chance on my gap year, when I worked in Zimbabwe for 6 months.
For me, I can pin point exactly when it was that the travel bug hit me. I was on an overnight train ride in India, as part of a 3-month trip in my early twenties, I had a little Indian child on my lap and we were sharing food and stories.
Twenty years and counting for me at Real Holidays! I’ve been here a long time, and I’ve seen many changes in travel destinations, hotels and how we book holidays but what has always stayed consistent is the foundation of Real Holidays.
You won’t find any ‘off the shelf’ holidays on this website. That’s because we can take you anywhere in the world and create any experience you’d like. We’re not limited by fixed destinations, itineraries or hotels and we won’t restrict you by date or budget. Instead, you can dream big or small, and think far and wide or closer to home.
