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.
One of her favourite holidays was to Croatia’s mesmerising coast, which she would recommend to families of all ages as there are so many wonderful sites to explore. During this holiday she particularly enjoyed witnessing the traditional folklore dancing as part of Dubrovnik’s Summer Festival.
Jade is looking forward to travelling to Malta and Gozo for the first time this summer, where she plans to take a relaxing boat trip along the coast with the chance to snorkel and admire the abundance of underwater wildlife. Jade also looks forward to sea kayaking – an exciting alternative to walking along the coast.
Since joining Activities Abroad, Jade has been lucky enough to enjoy a thrilling winter adventure in Finland, where she participated in a number of exciting activities and had the opportunity to meet Father Christmas himself! As a self-proclaimed explorer – she is very excited to see more of our destinations, especially within the Arctic Circle as her dream is to see the Northern Lights.
