Dawn Rawlings

Whilst her childhood family holidays pretty much consisted of a few weeks sitting on the beach and eating ice cream on the Isle of Wight, Dawn has managed to pick up a few new experiences on family activity holidays since joining Activities Abroad in 2012. Having worked as a vital member of our sales and customer services team, Dawn is now our Office Manager. 

She has been lucky enough to explore and enjoy a fair few winter locations and the occasional summer location from Finland to Norway to Malta to Sweden, experiencing some of the fun-filled family experiences that we offer.

Her love of travel was enthused by a last-minute gap year, which inspired her to take in more of the world and seek out those experiences that are just off the beaten track. Having studied history at university, experiences with a more historical or cultural slant are always the most favourable to her. When not busy she will often lend a hand copywriting for the website, so any enthusiastic mentions of Roman temples, Incan ruins and Scandinavian Sámi culture are sure to have come from Dawn.
