Q & A With Rachel
Where was your last trip?
Whistler and Vancouver in Canada
What is your first travel-related memory?
Not really a memory, but my mum still hasn’t let me live down my screaming ‘where’s the ground gone??’ on my very first flight as two years old. Flying still is not my favourite!
Aisle or window seat?
Definitely window seat.
Do you have any travel habits or rituals?
Nope, apart from a mild panic when the plane takes off.
What are you most likely to splurge on while travelling?
Food. I earned the name ‘three-dinner-Rach’ last time I was in Thailand. I need to try everything.
What’s your favourite thing about working at NWS?
The range of work involved, every day is different, no matter what your role it. I also love that we all pitch in outside of our job roles in order to support each other – there’s a real sense of team spirit.
What do you like doing outside of NWS?
I love winter sports and dance as well as tackling the gym when I can, and bouldering too.
If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be?
Anything to Madagascar, that place really fascinates me.
What is your spirit animal?
I did a quiz and it said butterfly, so I re-did it and it came up with marsh harrier - much happier being a bird!
