    Before tour leading

    I was a personal assistant to film directors, television writers and music producers. I also worked as a showbiz reporter for a news agency. Everyone assumes that it was very glamorous, with parties and premieres every night, but the reality was far more boring - though I did get to travel to some wonderful locations and interview some of my favourite bands.

    What do you get up to in Asia when not tour leading?

    I catch up with friends, go to the cinema, sleep, play tennis, go to the gym, sleep some more. When I have a few days off in a row, I sometimes hop on a local bus and visit a resort for some sun and sand.

    What do you love most about the job?

    That I get to help people have wonderful holidays, introduce them to new food, and see them interact with the locals. Watching someone visit a country for the very first time and engage in a conversation with a seller in the market, or join in with kids playing games, those are the special moments.

    What is your most memorable tour leading moment to date?

    Being asked by my clients to join in with giving an elephant a bath in Myanmar. We waded into the river and started scrubbing her clean. She was totally at peace and we all felt very privileged to be a part of that experience.

    What is your favourite destination in Asia?

    Japan and Laos. Both extremely different. Japan is so well organized, with such beauty, amazing food, friendly locals and the best train network I have ever been on. In comparison, I love walking slowly around Luang Prabang, drinking a fruit shake and wandering through the night market or enjoying a meal on the banks of the Mekong.

    Favourite Asian meal - what's in it?

    Chicken pho soup from Vietnam - a large bowl of steamed chicken, beansprouts, noodles, and a huge amount of beautiful clear soup. I have that for any meal, though usually lunch or breakfast - yes, breakfast!! You can also have it with beef, seafood or tofu. If you come to Vietnam, be sure to try it.

    What's your advice for first-timers to Asia?

    Try as much of the local food as you can. The food in Asia is some of the best in the world.
    Add a sachet of rehydration powder to a bottle of water in the morning - it will help you with your energy levels.
    Bring any unwanted clothes from home - we always know where they would be gratefully received.
