I am a seeker. From early childhood I have had an insatiable curiosity about the world at large. Fascinated by faces and places from my grandmother’s stamp collection, I insisted travelling as an unaccompanied minor by eight, cultivated my independent nature by studying abroad in Massachusetts, and spent a year overlooking the Seine in Paris, serving as an excellent hub for European exploration. Like a sponge, I absorb it all, and like a chameleon, I assimilate.
Always keen to step out of my comfort zone (I am somewhat of an adrenaline junkie), I have skydived 15,000 feet over Adelaide’s mineral flats, risen to Red Howler Monkeys deep in Manu’s jungle, glided alongside a Dugong during a drift dive in Komodo, floated weightlessly in the Tyrrhenian Sea at the mercy of the elements in Sardegna, savoured coconut-infused curry meals in Kerala off a banana leaf, witnessed absolute eerie silence in the Swedish countryside … recounting these treasured memories transports me back immediately.
In exploring trails by foot, speaking to strangers from all walks of life, and immersing myself in every adventure, I would love to share my uninhibited view of the world with you, and be a catalyst to plan yours!
It was a well planned itinerary with good guides and accommodations. I would use Jacada again.
Our party of 6 city folks from Hong Kong was thrilled by the 5-day sojourn earlier this month. Despite all the preparation, mental and otherwise, Iceland was the proverbial jaw-dropper. 3 words to capture what we covered were; Vastness, Freshness and Friendliness. Firstly we were floored by the miles and miles of vast land masses, of unpolluted water, of emptiness…
Great Service. Very responsive. Lots of attention to detail and little addons to make our holiday a great success.
Highly recommend Jacada for tours of South America. We had two highly successful trips in successive years. The trips are all bespoke with really nice boutique hotels for accommodation and you are always looked after with your own private guide, even at all the airport check ins and arrivals. They can and do cater to your individual needs and all…
Had a great time in Ecuador and thanks to the excellent arrangements made by Jess and Omar at Jacada. They were very professional , efficient and very helpful.
