Q & A With Ellie

Where have you travelled to in the last 12 months?

Cyprus, Canada, New York and Barbados.

Where are you planning to travel in the next 12 months?

I’m not sure yet! I will probably be staying closer to home this year but a train tour of Italy is definitely on the cards.

What is your first travel-related memory?

Sailing around the Greek islands with my family and seeing dolphins for the first time!

Aisle or window seat?

Window, always.

Do you have any travel habits or rituals?

Whenever I am landing back into London I always listen to Kano…

What are you most likely to splurge on while travelling?

Definitely food and wine!

What’s your favourite thing about working at NWS?

My everyday work is creating itineraries for our clients' amazing safari holidays. What’s not to love?

What do you like doing outside of NWS?

Fashion, dog walking and going out for food is what I love to do at home. But when I’m travelling it’s all about surfing, snowboarding and hiking!

If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be?

Swimming with killer whales in Norway, I don’t think anything beats that.

Is there a standout destination in your mind?

Whistler in Canada is a favourite for me. Amazing scenery, kind people and snow sports make it my perfect destination.

What is your best travel souvenir?

When I was in Puerto Maldonado, Peru, I bought a multi-coloured 8-person hammock.

What is the best travel advice you have received?

Worry about the money later!

What is your spirit animal?

Apparently a bear? I do love Canada so that makes sense!

What is your favourite thing about working/living in Brighton?

All of the great bars and coffee shops.
