As a child I was always fascinated with the idea that there was so much of the world I’d never seen. In my late teens I received my diploma in travel and began working in the industry. But a diploma is nothing compared with actually visiting these places, which is why I love working for Mr & Mrs Smith, where I’m able to visit in person and then curate unique stays for our similarly minded members.
