Brought up as a child in Northumberland, Andy developed an early a love of the outdoors and adventure. After studying in Sheffield, Andy returned to his native North East, spending many years combining his love of travel and sport, working as a travel expert for a small company organising golf holidays around the world.
Following a period working in the charitable sector Andy is delighted to have returned to the travel industry, as the newest member of our sales team at Activities Abroad.
Many of Andy’s most treasured memories have occurred whilst on holiday; from marvelling at the history of ancient Mayan cities in the Guatamalan jungle, to exploring the coral reefs of Thailand and enjoying his favourite sunsets on Santorini. If he had to give one favourite travel experience it would undoubtedly be a magical morning spent overlooking the Crocodile River at The Kruger National Park as a huge herd of elephants came down to drink, splash and in the case of the little ones throw mud at each other as the sun rose over the South African bushveld.
With a passion for all things active, Andy enjoys running, playing football and golf, hiking in the mountains, cycling and when he’s feeling brave surfing in the North Sea. Having also tried kayaking, climbing, caving and snorkelling whilst on holiday, he’s excited by the prospect of sampling some of Activities Abroad holidays. Andy is especially looking forward to the opportunity to visit Finland with his young daughter and for her to meet Father Christmas once she’s old enough.
