If we need to get in touch, when is the best time to give you a call about your holiday?

Where's the best place you've ever stayed?

It was Ulasaba, in Kruger, South Africa. You opened your door to find a cheetah sitting there cleaning itself, monkeys sat on the chairs on your verandah overlooking the elephants on the plains next to you, the food was magnificent and the service was very friendly and attentive. The endless skies over the African planes should be one of the wonders of the world. Unforgettable.

What's your oddest travel moment?

was being delivered in a one-man plane to the base of Mount Roraima (The Lost World/ UP) across the Venezuelan Savannah. I sat in the front with the pilot; windows flapping, a box of tortoises on my lap, a crate of chickens behind me, and at one point, we even had someone on a stretcher sliding about back there, as we delivered medical supplies, food and post to lots of mud-hut villages along the way. Then the pilot dropped me off in the middle of nowhere, told me he’d be half an hour and flew off leaving me hundreds of miles from anywhere, completely alone except for a lot of bored anteaters with evening closing in around me. He took an hour to come back. I’ve never been so grateful to hear the buzz of a distant plane but standing there completely alone in the silence made me realise just how vast and endless the possibilities of travel are.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

Hong Kong on an evening Harbour Cruise. It was warm, it was sunset, the lights of Hong Kong Island began rippling all around me. It was one of those moments in life in which everything is complete - in every sense. You couldn’t think about anything else because you were right there, in that perfect moment. I want everyone I know to go there to have that moment.

What are your suitcase essentials?

Restaurant guide, SAS Survival Guide, plasters, TCP, antihistamine, string, music, camera, chargers, pad, and a pen

Where's next on your wishlist?

India; Calcutta, toy train up to Darjeeling, fly to Varanasi then train down to Pondicherry, followed by Taiwan, Northern Lights and Hawaii.
