Plan your perfect holiday with Brooke Halcrow
Brooke's passion for travel started as a child when her family would fortunately go on holiday annually to Turkey. Experiencing different cultures in different countries, she knew travel was something she wanted to pursue for a lifetime. Brooke would always push to make sure she could save up for her dream holiday from the age of 17 and this has taken her from city breaks to the Caribbean. Brooke understands that everyone has a dream holiday in mind and loves to put this into practice at Kuoni.
Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. We stayed in a fountain view suite and were so glad we did as we saw the Bellagio fountain displays 24 hours a day.
The suite itself had a Jacuzzi, walk in shower and a balcony to take some amazing photos. The Cosmo took style and luxury and then dipped it in some glitter.
What's your oddest travel moment?
Having dinner with my family in Rhodes at a local Greek restaurant, and a cricket the size of a large dessert spoon fell onto the table at which point the women of the family screamed and the table was overturned. Unfortunately, there and then dinner was over.
What are your suitcase essentials?
I do love my iPad. I can take photos of my whole holiday and add them to social media whilst lying on a beach with a cocktail in my hand, and then just pop my headphones in and listen to whatever music I’m the mood for that day! Also, I have learnt never forget aftersun. I always smother myself in it to preserve my tan and to stop myself from peeling, especially in the Caribbean heat which is like no other.
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
Being at the very top of the Empire State Building with my sister at night and looking out and seeing lights for miles. The photos we took were incredible and I have hundreds that all look identical but they are still amazing. It was also -16degrees up there in Winter but we wrapped up and didn’t care!
Where's next on your wishlist?
It would have to be Sri Lanka. I love animals so would love to go on a Jeep Safari, visit the National Parks and top it off with some snorkelling in some of Sri Lanka’s finest coral reefs.
