Tell us what you want from your holiday

What would make a perfect holiday? Tell us who is going with you, what airport you'd like to fly from and any other details we may find useful, such as if it's a special occasion.

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?

Crete will always be a very special place for me, being the first destination I lived when I moved overseas. Visiting places like Elafonissi beach to see its pink sands and exploring the Island of Spinalonga with its incredible history, Crete is a beautiful island.

What's your oddest travel moment?

Whilst I was exploring the Troodos Mountains in Cyprus I came across a Skiing centre. It was Mid August and about 40'c. It seemed so strange to think that people would be Skiing there in the winter given how very hot it was at that moment. I still have the photo of me in shorts and a t-shirt at that skiing destination.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

My perfect travel moment is when I visited Norway on my honeymoon. We were able to walk to the foot of a Glacier which in itself was incredible but it was after walking back down to the village of Olden that stands out for me. The mountain backdrop next to a crystal clear lake with beautiful flowers and the sun beaming down. It was so peaceful and quiet I could have happily sat all day and enjoyed the surroundings.

What are your suitcase essentials?

I am naturally very pale so sun cream is a must for me, and lots of it. Along with sun cream, a good book so I can relax after a day spend exploring and I'm happy.

Where's next on your wishlist?

I really enjoy holidays where I can explore and experience the local environment so I'm keen to visit Costa Rica. The national parks and wildlife, not forgetting the Cloud forest reserve make it the destination that is top of my wish list.

After travelling around Europe in her early teens it wasn't until Amy's 21st Birthday that she was able to pack her suitcase and board a plane again. Experiencing the hotter climes, different culture and beautiful locations led Amy to pursue a career based overseas, spending 2 years living in 3 different countries. Now based in the UK Amy's love and enthusiasm for all things travel has continued to grow
