Meet the Store Staff
Natalie Whiston - Marketing Juggler and Plate-spinner
I never had a chance. I was born into a family of travellers, and I was hooked from young age. I've never since managed to escape the bug and, to be honest, I'd prefer a lifetime of great photos and travel experiences to a fancy car or an expensive pair of shoes any day.
Here's a bit about me:
Coolest nature experience? Releasing turtle hatchlings in Borneo by torchlight.
Scariest moment? Being caught up in a human surge at a festival in Japan...losing my footing...very closely avoiding being trampled
Favourite drink? A stein (or two) at Oktoberfest in Germany. Just don't forget the pork knuckle.
Best dancing? Trinidad, Cuba - loving the salsa!
Favourite travel memory? Far too many to mention. And hopefully many more to come...
Sandy Erskine - Customer Experience Officer
My favourite places are remote. From the Jordanian desert to the Himalaya and the vastness of Antarctica, I love to check out the wild parts of our planet.
Why do you for for G Adventures?
I work for G Adventures because the philosophy on sustainable travel matches my own and being able to pass this message on & introduce people to an amazing travel experience is very rewarding.
How long you have worked for G Adventures?
I have been in travel for 8 years, just over 2 with G Adventures here in Melbourne. I now deal with reservations and many of our partners booking the MS Expedition.
Strangest thing you've ever eaten?
Not quite Bear Grylls but I've tried Crickets, crocodile, Goanna and erm...haggis.
Where to next?
The list never gets any smaller and Iran and Venezuela are high on the list. Africa calls though...I promise not to eat any of the Big 5!
Steve Ladgrove - Customer Experience Officer
Your position: Reservations CEO/Grease Monkey/Dishwasher/Animal Wrangler/Annoyer of Sandy

Why you work in travel? It's a passion, addiction and unfortunately i'm a slave to Travel. Plus it's great to work in an industry with so many like minded people. I have met so many great friends in this industry.
Why do you work for G Adventures? We're different. We're not the same. Apart from our core values, it's great to turn up to work and use our core values towards my work life.
How long you have worked for G Adventures? Have been at G Adventures for 1 year. Been in travel in general close to 4 years!
Favorite overseas food: Authentic Goan Spicy Chicken Vindaloo. My. Lips. Are. Still. Burning.
