Self Guided Walking Holidays & Cycling Holidays

Gayle Turnbull: D&A Operations Specialist

Areas of expertise: UK Operations

Having found an interest in travel at an early age I set off travelling after graduating with a degree in Marketing and Tourism in 2001.  I ended up casually working as I travelled, each job allowing me to travel to the next destination.  Ending up in Ireland in 2005 I found a dream job working for an independent long haul tour operator where I worked for 9 years.  This job allowed me to regularly travel while there.  For the past 2 years I have worked for a small luxury tour operator specializing in Asian tailormade tours.  I’ve always been passionate about UK tourism though and so a move to Macs is allowing me to focus on this - which I’m really looking forward to.  Of all the places I’ve been I truly believe it’s hard to beat the beauty of the west coast of Scotland on a good day!

 I would definitely confess to being travel obsessed!  I’ve travelled to about 82 countries and all seven continents to date.   I love travelling, reading about travel, talking about travel, watching programs on travel … you get the picture … !

When not travelling I enjoy walking, there are so many incredible places within a couple of hours of Glasgow.  I also enjoy genealogy, antiquing, and spending time with friends. 

I'm looking forward to more travel in Europe coming up and exploring new places in the UK with Macs Adventure.  I met some lovely Alaskans on a recent trip to Croatia though who invited us to stay .. could be another adventure in the not too distant future!
