Vanessa has a long list of hobbies including surfing, wakeboarding, running, Crossfit, and mountain biking. Good food, better coffee, great conversations and of course cold beer also feature on her hobbies list, which is fair enough we reckon! She's climbed the highest mountain in the west of Ireland in bare feet (they have mountains in Ireland!?) and she's worked in the Pilbara region of Australia as a Civil Trade Assistant, where each shift is 28 days long and the majority of workers are male. She recalls that as being an amazing and challenging experience; a real confidence booster and a good reminder that woman can do anything! Aside from her fly in / fly out work in Australia, Vanessa has also managed a gym, been a healthy lifestyle coordinator and an outdoor activity camp coordinator!
Above all, we aim to be amazing hosts. We're proud of our kiwi roots, and our professional, warm and relaxed style of running trips around the world is unforgettable.
