Managing Director

Catherine Lebouille

My name is Catherine and I hail from Brittany, France. After a few years in the tourism sector in France, I followed my passion for travel and moved to India, where I worked for a local agency for 3 years. In 2010, I left to try my luck in Sri Lanka: a good decision! I fell in love with this wonderful island. With all my accumulated experience and passion for travel, in 2012, I decided to launch a human-sized travel agency, with a real family spirit. I built a team of expert travel consultants, and together we tailor-make responsible and off-the-beaten-track trips! That's how Mai Globe Travels was born.

My favorites in Asia? Kalpitiya and the Knuckles Range in Sri Lanka, Madhya Pradesh and Ladakh in India, Hoi An and the northern mountains in Vietnam!
