Having studied languages at university, Millie has always had a love for cultures. Her passion began from a young age, having spent much of her childhood living in France. Whilst initial family holidays took her all around the globe from Egypt to far-flung Zanzibar, it was not until after finishing her education that she really set about exploring the nuances of world travel. A month-long European rail trip introduced her to many of the Continent's iconic cities and diverse cultures; whilst spending four months living in historic Córdoba served as more than just part of a degree, allowing her to integrate into the Iberian way of life, practice her Spanish and learn about Islamic influence in Andalucía.
After university, Millie went backpacking around Central America, the US and Canada for three months, hiking up a series of volcanoes in Costa Rica, exploring ancient Mayan ruins in Belize and tasting plenty of authentic mezcal in Mexico. More recently Millie has continued to follow her passion, exploring much of the Middle East, with her personal highlights including swimming with whale sharks in the Gulf and spending a night in a Bedouin tent in the Omani desert.
