theme of her tenth birthday party was a trip around the world. Her
parents recreated the inside of a plane in their house - with a
makeshift cockpit of cardboard boxes and Christmas lights. From their
transformed sitting room, Claire and her friends were transported to
all the continents of the world, stopping to take in the sights of
many different countries. It was an incredible experience that her
friends still remember today. It certainly made a mark on Claire,
spurring on her enthusiasm to see the world.
her career as a lawyer, she has been lucky to be able to combine her
love of horses and travel. She has always wanted to share her
globetrotting experiences in the hope of inspiring others, especially
children, to want to explore the world and go off on their own globe
trot - with or without a horse!
