One trip can change your life. That was certainly true for Gemma. Fifteen years ago she took 18 months out to travel across the USA, the South Pacific, Asia, New Zealand and Australia. When she finally landed back in the UK, there could be no return to humdrum normality.
“Within weeks I had found a job in the travel industry,” she says. “It had become my absolute passion, and over the 15 years since of working for luxury tour operators I’ve been lucky enough to visit even more amazing places around the world.”
Gemma is based in London and Hampshire and, while she’s continued to develop her own business using all the tools that 360 puts at her disposal, she never stops creating unique and bespoke itineraries and experiences tailored to each individual client.
“I tended towards specialising in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA and the south Pacific in previous years to draw on my wealth of experience, including the Floating Bear Lodge in British Columbia, Canada and an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora. But I’m now just as likely to recommend the Caribbean, Indonesia, China, Japan, South Africa or Sri Lanka.”
