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

My first visit to Japan was when was 18 and It was my first holiday I planned myself, I stayed at the Shiba park hotel and every time I woke up I would open my curtains and there in front of me was a perfect view of Tokyo tower. Whenever I would make my way to the lobby the doorman would always bow and welcome me or wish me farewell everyday. It was my first taste of the Japanese culture and I just fell in love after that stay.

What's your oddest travel moment?

I was in Kyoto and was stopped by a local, who kept asking me the strangest questions, in the background a couple walked by and made shooing gestures towards me, which got me puzzled. After answering his questions he wanted to take me back to his tea room, to which I declined but he was persistent and kept begging me to come, in the end I made up a lie about a tour I was on and quickly ran away. I always wonder what was in that tea room.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

To me my perfect moment was standing on Mount Fuji. To me it is beautiful and symbolic to japan and I felt so calm and peaceful standing up there. You make your way to station 5 and on route you get told all about the mountain and it's folklore stories. If you are brave enough you can actually walk to the top where there is a little post box that you can post a letter to yourself to say you made the climb.

What are your suitcase essentials?

I always have to travel with my St Christopher necklace, call me superstitious but I don't feel safe without it on, I even left the check in queue once as I forgot to put it on and it was in my suitcase.

Where's next on your wishlist?

Well where to start. I think my next destination to tick off to visit would be China. To see all it's ancient wonders, from the Terracotta Army in Xian to the forbidden city in the centre of Beijing

Faye first caught the travel bug when at 16 she flew to Australia for the first time to visit family friends. Since than she's traveled to various European cities and further a field destination's like Cuba, Mexico and her favourite Japan, which she is hoping to aim a third visit at the 2020 Tokyo games.
