Lucy Jackson may have grown up in the UK, but she's always had family roots in Asia; her great-great-grandfather was Sir Thomas Jackson, who helped the financing of Hong Kong as an economic centre through his chairmanship of HSBC back in the late 1800s. It was this connection that eventually brought Lucy to Hong Kong in her 20s.
An avid traveler all her life, Lucy was destined to work in the travel industry. In 2009, she co-founded Lightfoot Travel—a company that offers personalised luxury travel itineraries to discerning clients—in Singapore before opening a Hong Kong office in 2011. These days, Lucy runs her business out of Bali, where she is now based with her husband and two kids.

Europe for the summer—catching up with friends, family and the Lightfoot Travel London team. We managed to squeeze in a week’s holiday to Greece, where I spent many childhood summers. It was wonderful to introduce our young boys, to the untouched beauty of North-Eastern Corfu with their grandparents, making new memories in much loved olive groves and local tavernas.
