Favourite Sports Tour Destination
“My favourite sports tour destination so far has been Barcelona. I helped with a group of 70 children ranging from 12-18 years old. They got to play against local teams and also got to tour around Nou Camp which is home to FC Barcelona and visit the famous ‘La Rambla’ where they were able to soak up the culture of Barcelona.”
Most Memorable Travel Experience
“My most memorable travel experience was to tour Australia. I spent 3 months driving over 23,000km. I climbed to the top of Ayres Rock, swam in the Great Barrier Reef and went skiing on Mount Baw Baw. It really was a once in a lifetime experience. “
