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

I stayed in a superb hotel in Koh Samui, after travelling around Thailand sleeping in some rather interesting Hostels. Checking into a beautiful hotel leading straight onto a breathtaking beach with wonderful views and superb facilities felt like heaven... I have never appreciated anywhere as much.

What's your oddest travel moment?

I booked a sleep aboard boat tour in PhiPhi to visit Maya bay. On arrival we was told that as a one off (because it was Christmas day), they would allow us to sleep on the beach. Later that night we grabbed sleeping bags and headed to the beach for the most restless nights sleep I've ever had. Every hour or so, we kept having to move to avoid being washed away by the tide and to stay out of the rain, all night I just kept thinking an animal was going to crawl on me. Definitely the most surreal, yet amazing experience.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

My perfect travel moment would have to be getting married in Cancun, Mexico. Id always dreamed of a wedding abroad but to actually achieve it on a beautiful white sandy beach surrounded by our friends and family was beyond perfect

What are your suitcase essentials?

Essential items for me would have to be a Travel Adaptor, Sun-cream, Bikini and some comfy shoes for exploring.

Where's next on your wishlist?

Next on my wish list is most certainly the Hawaiian islands. I would love to visit the Arizona war museum at Pearl Harbour and go zip-lining through the beautiful green valleys, explore the national parks as well as surfing and diving with sea turtles.

Emma developed a passion for travel after going on her first holiday abroad when she was 11. Shortly after, her family bought a house in Crete, Greece which made her even more keen to see the world. Since then she has visited many countries including travelling across Thailand and has recently got married on a beach in Mexico. Her bucket list continues to grow and she is looking forward to sharing and creating new experiences with Kuoni.
