Meet Kara

2018 was my first season as a Tour Leader for Sundowners Overland, touring Russia, Mongolia and China. I was previously a Tour Leader in the Middle East - Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Egypt before moving to Petra, Jordan and living there for several years.

Favourite thing about Tour Leading: The best part of being a tour leader is seeing people's reactions when they get to experience or see something amazing that maybe they have always dreamed about or is a total surprise.

Favourite place to visit and why: Favourite place is a tough one... there are too many and I am sure that in a few months there will be a new favourite place.

On the road tips: take everything as it comes - the beauty of travelling is learning about other cultures/habits/traditions and learning about how we do things differently and also how we are the same all over the world.

Hobbies, achievements and dreams: I love hiking - especially long distance hiking. I would like to complete the whole Sinai Trail in Egypt and the Jordan Trail ( having done parts of). However after joining Sundowners and visiting Russia and Mongolia the list is growing - Altai Mountains, Kamchatka..... the list is endless!!!!
