Glenyce’s working life began in the local factory in Warrnambool, far away from the glitz and glamour of European travel. Though she didn’t take her first overseas trip until the age of 19, Glenyce made up for lost time by visiting what at the time, seemed like the most important place in the world – Disneyland.
Her next stop was Europe, where a one-year plan turned into a travel extravaganza, and she spent eight years roaming all corners of the globe including Africa and South America. She’s since visited 136 countries across all seven continents and her appetite has turned to walking, frequently returning to the places she enjoys most. The Camino features highly on this list, which explains why she has walked it 24 times and counting, as do walking trails in Japan, Scotland, Ireland and England.
After working in the UK and returning to Australia, Melbourne seemed like the happy medium between London and Warrnambool. She took her first job in the travel industry in 1999 with Peregrine Adventures and it was a match made in heaven. She spent 15 years with Peregrine, eventually becoming managing director, which laid the foundations for an even bigger dream – Wandering the World. This company is the result of an aspiration she didn’t know she had until she realised how passionate she is about sharing all the places she loves most.
Glenyce now divides her time between home in Melbourne, and her second home, the Camino, where she walks its many paths over and over making sure Wandering the World has unforgettable experiences waiting for its walkers.
