  • 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.

    • Amazingly, I’m one of Real Holidays longest serving members of staff, having started in 1998. My love of travel began from birth; I can credit my parents for nurturing an appreciation of the world.

          • Catherine Foxon
          • 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.

              • 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.

                • My most formative years were spent living in Africa, where I was the ultimate bush child having adventures that I can only dream of giving my children. We also called India & Pakistan home which gave me a deep respect for diverse cultures.

                  • My first taste of the freedom of travel came when I was separated from a hostess as an unaccompanied minor aged 11. Being lost in the airport didn’t faze me and I was transfixed with the planes landing and departing to far-off lands.
