Emma Bell
Destination Specialist | 2018

I grew up in the UK and moved to New Zealand with my family in 2009. Being on that side of the world gave me the opportunity to travel around Europe from a young age with my favourite country being Italy. When we arrived in New Zealand we travelled around the entire North Island experiencing everything it has to offer. From skiing at Ruapehu, hot pool hopping in Rotorua, bungy jumping in Taupo and exploring the beautiful Coromandel, I am now so grateful to call New Zealand my home.

With a degree in Psychology and a background in Hospitality I have ended up in the exciting world of Tourism. I absolutely love New Zealand and everything it has to offer people of all ages and cultures, so I have landed my dream job here at Southern World!  Aside from being a bit of a workaholic, I love to spend my spare time at my favourite place in New Zealand – Whangamata (in the Coromandel) with my partner and family as well as enjoying a cheeky glass of Pinot Gris!
