Intrepid | Curious | Compassionate
Brigid Finley, originally from Berkeley, California, came to Extraordinary Journeys with 15 years of experience in the travel and hospitality industry. Though she’s had the travel bug since she was a kid, her first encounter with Africa was a two-week trip through Morocco during college, while studying in Seville, Spain. Since then she has traveled through Colombia by bus, road tripped across South Africa, watched the sunrise from the Ganges in Varanasi, India and trekked miles to find The Susa Group / Family of gorillas in Rwanda. Based in Austin, Texas, she is an avid skier and hiker and is now joined on adventures by her young daughter. She’s curious, solution-oriented and intrepid and finds travel both restorative and inspiring. Nothing makes her happier than helping others find a similar joy in travel.
My Greatest Adventure
My husband and I spent three weeks driving from Cape Town to Johannesburg, stopping at all the national parks along the way. It was a wild adventure! Also, gorilla trekking in Rwanda. It was a heart pounding experience, such a thrill, and yet so heart-warming.
My Favorite Destinations
Rwanda for its beauty and open-hearted people; Israel for its history and cultural juxtapositions; Mexico for its rich culture and diversity of experiences.
