Vanessa was born in England and started her first adventure at the tender age of 6 on the high seas to the Caribbean.Though it took time for her to adapt to the rhythms and cultures of Jamaica, she was already hooked by the music of the Caribbean. By age 12, the family was on the move again heading back to the UK and 2yrs later it was across the Atlantic to Canada. Not knowing that this is where her passion for travel began.
Since graduating from the International Institute of Travel, Vanessa has been kissed by Giraffes in Nairobi, visited the citadel of Machu Picchu, travelled to 12 countries in Europe, 4 countries in Africa, experienced 3 African Safaris, visited the Ngorongoro Crater, zip lined over the trees of Costa Rica as well as her very first time water rafting in Costa Rica. She has visited most of the Caribbean Islands and extensively in Mexico and 14 states in the USA.
