Meet the awesome Kate, BUNAC's Account Manger for our Intern in Britain Ultimate programme.

Name: Kate Howe

Job title: Account Manager

Describe yourself in three words: Sociable, approachable, adventurous/ish.

What’s your fave song to sing to in the shower?: 'Mrs. Bartolozzi' by Kate Bush

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?: Anything Lebanese

Where is your dream city that you want to live?: Vancouver

Where’s next on your travel bucket list and why?: Scotland. So close to home but still never been! Heard so many amazing stories, would love to visit the lochs and hike the mountains.

Tell us about your favourite travelling memory: I spent many summers travelling America after completing Summer Camp USA, but my absolute favourite memory is popping up to Canada for three weeks. I was able to meet with friends I had made through previous Camp years and travel around Vancouver, Victoria, Banff and Lake Louise. Best three weeks ever!

Why do you love working for BUNAC?: After having BUNAC look after me and set up my travel and Summer Camp trips, I feel so happy to be helping other individuals create the same wonderful experiences as I did. Having such a strong and consistent point of contact to help you organise your trip is key and after experiencing their programmes first hand, I feel very confident and proud to be representing such a great organisation.

What would you say to someone who was unsure about going travelling?: No matter what the uncertainty is, you will soon overcome that feeling once you’ve booked your ticket and hopped on the plane. Travelling the world is one of the best feelings you can have and you will meet people that you will be friends with for life. You will gain a huge amount of experience that you won’t gain just by staying put! Don’t hold off until next year, start planning your trip now.

AND LASTLY what’s your travel philosophy?: No matter what happens on your trip, just go for it. You often find that you have made plans to travel around one country, but after meeting others you’ll find you have the opportunity to travel somewhere completely different or just sidestep your plan for a month. You will make amazing memories and friends this way. Don’t hesitate too much or always stick to your original plan, things change, just go with it.

Are you feeling inspired to start planning your next adventure abroad? Get in touch with the expert BUNAC team on 0333 999 7516 or at enquiries@bunac.org.uk.
