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

I was lucky enough to stay in a beautiful hotel in Johannesburg, The Palazzo Monte Casino. A stunning hotel, on beautifully kept grounds, that hosted a bird sanctuary and a whole complex of restaurants and shops. As expected in South Africa, the steak was incredible!

What's your oddest travel moment?

Riding on a horse-back safari in South Africa, being approximately 10m away from a couple of giraffes eating the trees, wildebeest in the background and a very friendly zebra, was definitely one of my most surreal moments.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

Visiting Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, we got up to the top and it was so cloudy we couldn’t see the statue at all! After waiting for 20 minutes or so, the clouds parted and revealed the magnificent statue and blue skies (for all of 30 seconds!) so we got snapping away with our cameras! It was perfect timing!

What are your suitcase essentials?

My absolute must have wherever I go are my GHD hair straighteners – my mother blessed me with the curliest and frizz prone hair so I just have to have them with me…especially for humid countries!

Where's next on your wishlist?

I would love to go back to South Africa and explore more of the animals, but as for a new destination I would have to say anywhere in the Indian Ocean or the Far East for new adventures

Ellie’s desire to travel started when she was growing up and fortunate enough for some wonderful family holidays. She then broadened her horizons by making her career flying around the world as cabin crew with British Airways. Even though she hung up her wings, travelling is her passion and she looks forward to experiencing more of the world.
