A Singapore girl born and bred, Melissa was no stranger to travel growing up. However, it wasn’t until she landed in Germany in the middle of an exceptionally snowy winter and spent the next few months backpacking through Europe that she suspected she had the travel bug. To verify her suspicions, she then spent two gloriously sunny months on a work stint in the Maldives. And then to eliminate any last shred of doubt, she went on to travel the whole of Southeast Asia. (Just to make sure!)
Melissa is intrigued by people, history, culture and languages. While she finds travelling herself to be extremely rewarding, she wanted to share her excitement and help others fall in love with travel as well. Mel is currently based in Lightfoot Travel’s Dubai office, adding Middle Eastern destinations to her travel portfolio at an astonishing rate!
