The Pre-Dinner Speaker: Ms Amelia Stewart
Amelia discovered the delights of the desert in 1995 on a theology school trip to the Sinai desert in Egypt. She then worked for the company who had organised the tour, taking many school journeys and retreats and organising an annual Gap Year Expedition with students to work on various projects in and around St Catherine’s Monastery and Mt Sinai. In 2004, Libya was opening up and she journeyed there on a ‘recce’ with the idea of setting up a specialist travel company focusing on desert and cultural environments. Thus Simon Travel was born (the name comes from a desert wind in Arabic) and Amelia now takes small groups to Algeria, Oman and Syria as well as Iran - her latest destination where she has just returned from with a group.
