Tell us what you want from your holiday

What would make a perfect holiday? Tell us who is going with you, what airport you'd like to fly from and any other details we may find useful, such as if it's a special occasion.

If we need to get in touch, when is the best time to give you a call about your holiday?

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

It has to be the Asimina Suites in Paphos, Cyprus. The rooms were amazing, with double balconies overlooking the resort and ocean as well as having the best rainfall shower I think I have ever experienced! It was like standing under a waterfall οΎ– just heaven! The food in the restaurants was delicious and so well presented. We particular enjoyed sitting out on the seafront with blankets to keep us warm as the sun went down. The resort itself was stunning and incredibly peaceful. It was just what we needed to relax, refresh and unwind.

What's your oddest travel moment?

It has to be when I was in Las Vegas and experienced an extreme case of jet lag. When we arrived, we got ready to go out as we were excited to see what the city had to offer. After some drinks in the bar and dinner at one of the famous buffets, we headed out on to the strip to explore. As there are no windows or clocks in the venues, time passes you by without realising. So, when we decided to head back to our hotel (at what we thought was around 3am) it came as quite a surprise to find out that the sun had come up and we had been out all night!

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

I probably have two and they were both perfect sunset moments. I am a keen sunset photographer and love the romance and tranquillity of watching a sunset. The first is most definitely when I was in the Dominican Republic and we watched the sunset from our infinity pool overlooking the ocean. The second was in Dubai when we took a dune safari and just as the sun began to set, we stopped to enjoy the stunning views over the desert.

What are your suitcase essentials?

I am prone to getting bitten so I now take my citronella everywhere with me. I was recommended this by the locals in Sri Lanka after I found 10 bites on my feet one morning.

Where's next on your wishlist?

I hope to visit Vietnam, Barbados and South America and then the rest of the world!
