Kirsty Wood

Growing up in Northumberland, Jade was lucky enough to spend a lot of her childhood outside, with some of her fondest memories being out and about in the great outdoors with her family. From a young age, she enjoyed camping holidays and accompanied her parents on a backpacking trip around Europe, and has since been fortunate enough to travel to various countries to experience active family holidays.

Located just two hours from Croatia’s capital Zagreb, the Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of Croatia’s most spectacular natural sites and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979. The park is dotted with 16 stunningly blue lakes, 90 impressive waterfalls, vast forest lands, limestone canyons, and caves carved over thousands of years. It truly is a sight to be seen and well worth a visit for any family!

Kirsty has always loved travelling, having spent many family trips away as a child. One of her fondest memories was getting her first taste of adventure white water rafting while in France. This sparked a love for exciting activities and led to travels further afield including Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Jo started as a placement student in 2006 as part of her Travel and Tourism Management degree and the rest they say, is history. Born in Newcastle and raised by very active parents, she was lucky enough to spend many summers camping and hiking in the Alps and skiing during the winter. Weekends were spent outdoors mucking about in boats or in the hills, and whilst she begrudged being dragged up windy mountains as a child, she still does all of these things now!
