I am a warrior but I'm not great on planes
Mélanie, Founder and CEO
MELMy memorable cultural experience:
A ‘temazcal’ is a Mexican spiritual steam room. The idea is to purify the body and mind, and test your mental resistance to harsh conditions. The session I attended took place in complete darkness, in the middle of the woods at night time.

Paul, Non-Executive Director
CARLYMy memorable cultural experience:
As a young man spending an entire month guiding over 150 senior level international executives from over 30 different cultures through the history, poetry, music and beauty of the Grampian highlands, in Scotland, whilst also immersing them all in the mystery and craft of producing malt whisky....what an experience and what a job!

Julia, Account Director
MELMy memorable cultural experience:
Going for a walk with sunglasses on at 1am in Norway. I travelled there in May and knew midnight sun was spectacular, but I never expected that I would have to wear sunglasses. The view from the Fløyen is truly inspiring.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there
Gaia, Project Manager
MEL My memorable cultural experience:
Dancing to live Irish music in a typical Dublin dance club. The club’s regular attendees taught me the moves. I was impressed by their welcoming and engaging manners. By the end of the soirée, I was able to master quite a few steps. Discovering this facet of Irish culture was absolutely amazing and fun too!

Jinkies!

My memorable cultural experience:
Travelling by ‘Jeepney’ in the Philippines. Dating back to the American era, the military jeeps have been converted into creatively decorated modes of public transport. Mine was called José and was fabulously red.
When I squeezed in between 20 passengers (and some chickens) I was in for a treat, as we soon left the smog of the city behind and passed through the stunning local countryside.

It's a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.
Jill, New Business Manager

Mardi Gras morning, catching coconuts from the Krewe of Zulu parade under the sunshine with my best friends.
So magical!

Save the bees for more hunny!
Louise, Account Manager
My memorable cultural experience:
Oh, how clean, green and pure Canada is! I knew that they were very into nature but they're so green they actually have food waste bins as standard in the street, and even in hotel rooms!

My memorable cultural experience:
Wild camping at the top of Trolltunga in Norway was one of the most challenging yet incredibly exciting experiences of my life. Watching the sunset and rise again over the fjord was truly breathtaking and well worth the two-day hike.

Every adventure requires a first step.
Joyce, Project Manager
My memorable cultural experience:
I lived in Edinburgh for more than a year and had the chance to learn highland dancing. I joined the Scottish people and celebrated the Beltane to welcome summer and I dressed up like a ghost for the Samhain to celebrate the end of harvest season. That was an exotic, wonderful, and memorable year.
