Danielle Farrell - Specialist Product Manager TDactive Holidays
From a young age, I have always had an extreme passion for travelling and seeing the world! At 21, I embarked on a solo adventure to Tanzania to do volunteer work which kick-started my love of immersing myself in different cultures. At 24, I left Ireland on a one-way ticket to Australia, which I called my home for 5 months. The more I travel, the more of the world I want to see!
When I returned from Australia in 2014, I began working with Travel Department and I have been lucky enough to visit Barcelona and Lake Garda on the continent, as well as enjoying trips further afield to Morocco, Russia, China, India and Vietnam. For me, India was a personal favourite. The sights, sounds and smells of India are something that need to be experienced to be believed. Plus, some of the tastiest food I have ever eaten was during my trip around India’s famous tourist route, the Golden Triangle.
As well as travelling extensively with Travel Department, I also take as much time as possible to do my own exploring. In addition to my trips to Tanzania and Australia, I have cruised around both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, visited New York, New Jersey and Florida in the US, experienced many of Europe’s main cities and sun resorts and most recently explored one of my favourite destinations yet - Iceland.
Working as part of the Product Team lets me combine my work with my love of travel. When I am not planning itineraries for Travel Department’s specialist brand, TDactive Holidays, I am most likely looking up details for my next adventure.
