I started with the Thorne Travel team in 2015 as a digital marketing apprentice to learn on the-job and through a series of courses at QA in Glasgow. I then enrolled on a degree course at Glasgow Caledonian University to study IT and Business Management and successfully completed this course in 2021. In 2022 following the acquisition of Largs Travel, I was proudly promoted to Operations Manager within the Thorne Travel Group.
As a lover of travel, I enjoy helping customers go from having an idea of a destination to then travelling and sharing their stories and best media from their adventure with us on their return. My favourite thing about the travel industry is that there is always more to learn about every destination, even after a customer has returned from their travels it is always great to hear about their experience and tips on where to go and what to see when there!
The top destination that I have explored so far would be a tough choice between Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi. Both are breathtaking places in their own way, and I would love to go back and visit them to do the things I feel like I missed. There is never enough time to explore all that they have to offer!
Having cruised for the first time in 2021 I am looking to learn more about different ships and itineraries as I loved the full cruising experience!
I always like to plan everything before I go to any destination. This way I feel like I can manage to squeeze as much into the short time period I am there. It is always better to pre book restaurants and attractions in advance this way you’re sure to miss out on long queues!
A top tip I always recommend that some people don’t think of, rather than taking 3 or 4 travel adapters, take one travel adaptor and a UK extension cable.
