Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
The most extravagant place I have stayed was the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. With Duplex Suites with spiral staircases, real gold flecks in the carpet and my own butler, this hotel really is 'The World's Only 7 Star Hotel'. Other favourites have been Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives, where open plan Water Villas sit over a turquoise lagoon. With a concept of understated luxury, this is really something special. Another hotel I loved was the Datai in Langkawai - this has the most beautiful spa I have ever seen. What a gorgeous hideaway!
What's your oddest travel moment?
Possibly when I filled what I thought was the laundry basket full of my dirty clothes from my suitcase, and when they didn't return within three days and I questioned with housekeeping, I was informed that this was in fact the bin. Unfortunately, my clothes didn't return which was very unfortunate for my poor sister - as lots of the items belonged to her!
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
Yes, I was in Lovina, Bali and took a sunrise dolphin safari. Despite setting my alarm for five am, it was one of the best mornings of my life. We set out in a long tail boat in the dark, and experienced one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen. The backdrop was of the volcano, complete with rolling mist to add to the mysticism. We finished up with banana pancakes on the beach for breakfast and a lovely cup of Balinese ginger and honey tea. Why can't every day start like this?
What are your suitcase essentials?
Adaptor and phone charger! As I use my iPhone as my camera and the battery doesn't last, this really is essential. I used to take my pillow everywhere much to the amusement of my friends, but I do leave that at home these days.
Where's next on your wishlist?
Brazil is next on my to do list, as is Japan, Miami and Hawaii. I am a real sea lover and my dream would be to do the Royal Clipper cruise in the Caribbean.
"Cheryl at Kuoni Liverpool office, who I made the booking with on the phone, was brilliant. She understood my requirements as it was a complex booking and she kept me updated and phoned me back promptly on various occasions."
