Sarah Pye’s life reads like an adventure novel. Her parents took her out of school at the age of 13 to sail around the world. Eight years later, already a qualified commercial boat captain, she left her floating home in the Caribbean to study tourism in California. An adventurous soul, Sarah has run a restaurant and a whale watch boat in Hawaii, canoed through the Canadian wilderness, created an award-winning tourism company in the Whitsundays and even found time to have a family. Sarah lives on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast with her daughter, and Chief Expert, Amber.Click here for Sarah’s latest media release
Amber is Kids Welcome’s chief expert. She has been trying out different holiday experiences ever since she was born and is getting pretty good at it now! Amber travels with Sarah and gives her opinion on everything they do. She’s Kids Welcome’s secret weapon. When Amber isn’t travelling she is in Grade 6, loves being a Scout and dancing. She calls her dog Bella her sister.
