Lesley began with special-interest tours to India in the 80’s, having settled in Dharamsala, exiled home of the Dalai Lama of Tibet. She lived there for nearly 20 years and helped set up projects with local weavers. Her knowledge of eastern culture, Hinduism and Buddhism and her interest in the people, as well as the rich textile heritage of the Indian sub-continent, is a result of her extensive travels throughout the region.
From the 90’s her travels took her further afield culminating in her arranging tours to countries as diverse as Bhutan, China, Mexico, Uzbekistan, South Africa, Burma, Laos and Cambodia.
Her inspiring and carefree journeys around the world focus on traditional village life, customs and culture, textiles & crafts, providing an opportunity to take superb photographs.
