Kashka has worked as an adventure tour leader and Operations Manager. She started travelling at a very early age when her family took the big decision to leave UK shores and migrate to sunnier climes in Australia. Since that time she has visited more countries than she can remember and lived and worked in 11.
When it comes to favourite destinations, Egypt is at the top of the list. After talking about it non-stop as a child and subsequently living there twice, she just had to live there too! Other travels include the Middle East, Europe and Asia. Kashka loves Islamic and Byzantine architecture and has a passion for seeking out and reading the literature of the places she visits.
The most surprising destination she has ever been to is Iceland. She loves their beautiful tradition of giving books to each other on Christmas Eve and then spending the night reading. Travelling for Kashka is like reading a wonderful never ending story and working in tailor made travel means she can help people write their own.

A long term traveller, Mike enjoys nothing better than the thrill of arriving in a new place, eager to explore new cultures, meet new people and soak up exciting new experiences, sights and sounds. From hitch hiking around Europe to overlanding around Africa, there isn't much that Mike hasn't done when it comes to travelling, with his favourite destination being the Peruvian and Bolivian Andes.
Citing his experiences in West Africa's Burkina Faso, where he was impressed by the friendliness and respectfulness of the good-natured local people, Mikes biggest tip for travellers is to always explore with an open mind and an easy smile and you will find that smile returned in abundance.
