Florence

Travel Co-ordinator

MEET FLORENCE

Bonjour. ¡Hola! Guten Tag! I’m Florence and as a first-class modern languages’ graduate in French, German and Spanish I love to travel and experience new cultures, as well as putting my language skills to the test! My favourite travels to date include trips to Canada, Europe and Malaysia as well as living and working in the Haute-Savoie, France and the Black Forest, Germany. Having now returned to my beautiful home county of Cumbria, I enjoy sharing my passion for travel and as a Far & Wild Travel Co-ordinator I love making your holiday as special and as unique as possible.

My Expertise - My role is all about co-ordinating your travel arrangements post booking, and it's me who will be sending out your travel pack before you fly. I also have strong relationships with our partners and suppliers which ensures everything runs smoothly.

MY TOP TRAVEL MOMENTS

  • Taking a Black Forest Gateau making course in Germany, and getting to eat the results afterwards.
  • Climbing the famous Petronas Towers and seeing the amazing view out over Kuala Lumpur.
  • Hiking to the top of Mont Veyrier in the French Alps, and being rewarded with the stunning panorama of Lake Annecy.

WHERE I'VE BEEN RECENTLY

I recently spent a year abroad working in France and Germany as a Conference Organiser and Translator. I loved living on the shores of beautiful Lake Annecy in the French Alps, and hiking the hills and exploring the towns on my days off. Whilst in Germany I attended a summer school in Dusseldorf and spent some time living in the Black Forest, from where I was able to explore the rest of country by train, as well as popping over to the Netherlands and Belgium. Berlin was definitely my favourite city with its intriguing blend of historical sights and contemporary architecture.

I RECOMMEND YOU STAY AT...

Lake Manyara Tree Lodge - Tanzania - for tree house suites and tree-climbing lions.

The Residence - Maldives - the ultimate castaway island paradise

Virunga Lodge - Rwanda - views don't get much better than this, and there's gorilla trekking too.

MY TOP TRAVEL TIPS

  • Always check you have your travel documents with you before you leave home!
  • Double check your baggage allowance before flying, it's not the same for every airline.
  • Learn a few words of the local language, it's always appreciated and will help you make friends on your travels.
