Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
Atlantis the Palm in Dubai has to be one of my favourites. It is located right at the end of the Palm Jeramiah so you get great views of the palm tree shaped island as well as the surrounding sea. I loved its underwater themed d'cor, not to forget its very own huge aquarium! The water park was so much fun. A very special experience.
What's your oddest travel moment?
When I was in Fiji, I was staying in very basic hostel accommodation which was very exposed to the elements. One morning I was awoken by a mouse sitting on the top of my bag that I had hung from the top bunk. This was quite close to my head so as you can imagine I shot out of my bed fairly quickly! I have to be thankful to the mouse though as I had got up just in time to see an amazing sunrise over the sea.
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
There are too many to choose! Swimming eye to eye alongside a turtle in the Great Barrier Reef has to be one of them. I had waited all day to see one and it was amazing to see it come up to the surface so close. Another has to be trekking up a volcano in Bali at 2 o'clock in the morning just to see the sunrise. It was hard work but so worth it. I have never seen so many stars lighting up the sky and then to see the sun coming up was a great way to celebrate climbing to the top!
What are your suitcase essentials?
I always have moisturiser in my bag especially as I get dry skin from swimming in the salty sea. But most important has to be my camera to capture those amazing memories and, of course, make everyone else jealous when I get back home!
Where's next on your wishlist?
This is a tough one as the list is forever growing. I would love to go on an African safari and see all the Big Five. I would also like to go somewhere a bit different like the Galapagos islands as well as seeing other parts of South America. I also love the beach and the Maldives sounds like paradise, a definite must see.
