About Karen Waters

Highly experienced member of staff with a wealth of travel tales to tell! Karen will regale tales of Island hopping through the Greek Islands, elephant trekking in Kenya and climbing Sigariya rock in Sri Lanka.

Having very generously been given a month off to tour Australia she is also an expert when it comes to all things Antipodeon.

Although flying is part of the job, Karen still prefers the scenic and somewhat closer to ground travel of the train. Ask her about our great range of holidays travelling quickly and comfortably by rail to every corner of Europe.
