Most of you have probably met Marcella by now, or at least seen her at the BWT travel desk downstairs in the student lounge. Marcella works for Backpackers World Travel and she has been with us for a few weeks now, working with Luiz as our travel expert. Read on to find out more about her…
Tell us about yourself!
Originally I’m from Santos on the East Coast of Brazil. I put my backpack on just over three years ago now and have never got round to going home! Most of that time has been spent in Australia.
What is your favourite trip or destination in Australia?
How do I pick something like this? I absolutely loved Uncle Brian’s Rainforest tour in Cairns as well as the reef trips, but nothing can beat the thrill of jumping out of a perfectly good aeroplane at 14,000ft!!!!!
What is your favourite thing to do in Byron Bay?
I love the sunrise at the lighthouse where I can admire the beautiful Byron Bay beaches, but my favorite trip is the snorkel at Julian Rocks Marine Reserve which is home to three different species of sea turtle, an assortment of rays including mantas, hard and soft corals, friendly wobbegong sharks and over four hundred different species of fish. What a beautiful please to explore the marine life!
Where are you planning to travel to next?
I never want to stop travelling! There are so many places still on the wish list, but the top two for now have to be the West Coast and Tasmania .Oh, and I’ve just been invited to go Skiing in Japan next year!
Marcella will be at Lexis every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 12pm and 3pm. Introduce yourself when you see her around and ask her all of your travel-related questions! 🙂
