Becky’s love for travel began at a young age, with family trips taking her to the USA, Canada, Kenya, Southeast Asia and throughout Europe. After completing a degree in development studies and a Master's in responsible tourism management, she travelled out to Costa Rica where she lived with a local family, learnt Spanish and helped to establish an eco-tourism venture. Then, following a ten-year stint in California, she returned to the UK, developing a passion for all things Scandinavia. Having completed trips throughout the region, both during the Arctic winter and under the summer’s Midnight Sun, Becky brings a wealth of expert insight to our Scandinavia portfolio.
