Bella remembers having to handwrite airline tickets when she first joined the travel industry back in 1984. In fact, everything was hand-written or typed back then as ‘we were not in the technology world!’ Bella loves meeting people and dealing with clients, and likes trying to make their dreams come true. As someone who has travelled extensively – Bella knows India better than she does Bedford – she has an incredible wealth of knowledge of destinations, which helps her do exactly that; ‘I love sharing my travel experiences with clients’.
Through her travels, Bella has covered much of the world, and could write a long list of her favourite destinations. She was brought up in Kenya and it remains one of her favourite destinations to this day; her experience of going up in a hot air balloon over the Masai Mara is one of her top travel experiences. ‘It was so lovely to watch the animals from above the plains, and good to finish the trip with a bubbly bush breakfast!’
Bella has escorted a number of tours, most recently in 2015 when she took a group to Kashmir and the Himalayan Foothills, and in March 2017, she escorted a group to Kerala and Tamil-Nadu in southern India. It's no wonder she's our resident India specialist!
