Started working on our new website this week, a perfect opportunity to review what we have been doing for the last 18 years and to think forward for the next several years!  An open horizon and an exciting new future for Caledonia.

We have been through plenty of ups and downs since 1998 when Caledonia was created –  that year 15 people travelled to Nice (France) and Granada (Spain) on summer language courses.  Little did we know that 18 years on we would be specialists in Cuba holidays, organising our own dance and music trips, co-ordinating hiking and trekking itineraries in various parts of the world and organising school trips to Europe and Latin America!

About the Author
Kath Bateman founded Caledonia in 1996 and still has a very active role in the company. As a linguist and avid traveller, Caledonia brings together many strands of Kath’s personal and professional interests. She is a Modern Languages and Tourism graduate and has worked as a tour leader and trilingual guide, ski rep and salsa teacher, cultural events organiser, salsa club promoter and English language teacher. She lived and studied in France and Austria and has travelled widely elsewhere in Europe, Latin America and particularly in Cuba. Kath is still very much involved in the business and is as motivated by what Caledonia does as when she first set up the company in the spare room at home all those years ago.
