Isedora, or Izzy as she prefers to be known, is Regent Training Centre’s Hospitality / Travel and Tourism / Customer Services Tutor based in New Lynn.  Not that you would know it from Izzy’s accent, but she was actually born in Namibia and lived in South Africa before settling at a young age in New Zealand.  It was perhaps the time spent travelling as a child that has instilled a passion for adventure and travel in Izzy as an adult.    At school Izzy describes h...
