Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
The Legend Chiang Rai River Resort in Chang Rai. It is a boutique hotel lining the river Mae Kok and nested within rain tress and vegetation. The hotel had a traditional Thai interior, containing majestic gold statues and large wooden doors with intricate animal designs cared into it. I stayed in the pool villa. Two large sliding doors opened up to a private pool, a swing sofa and a tropical outdoor jet bathtub. This way I could relax peacefully outside in the sun enjoying the nature and watching the fishermen floating past on the river.
What's your oddest travel moment?
When I was volunteering in Sri Lanka at the first orphanage, I was invited to dinner with a local family. I had a traditional Sri Lankan curry with Roti bread... and it was incredible. However I had forgotten that it was the norm to eat with your hands in Sri Lanka, so had the children laughing at me as I spilt the curry all down me!
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
Trekking through part of the Amazon rainforest on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was a perfect travel moment. It was a physical challenge, but a rewarding one. Having traversed dramatic waterfalls by rickety wooden bridges and climbing narrow pathways in level with the clouds I was finally greeted through a walkway of Inca paving stones to the extraordinary lost city, the mysterious Machu Picchu.
What are your suitcase essentials?
A pair of trainers and a pair of flip flops, because when I am not out exploring in the sun, I am in the pool or on the beach doing sports activities.
Where's next on your wishlist?
I would love to visit South Africa next; the iconic Table Mountain, to see the big 5 and to go surfing along the beautiful beaches. It would then be amazing if I could finish the holiday off with a few nights in Mauritius!
