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

There are so many wonderful places to choose from but I would have to say the Cambridge Beaches Hotel in Bermuda. I was lucky enough to have a fantastic meal cooked for me on the beautiful pink-sanded beach watching the sunset whilst drinking the local rum-swizzle cocktail. It was the perfect setting.

What's your oddest travel moment?

Sharing my room on a private game reserve in South Africa with a huge fruit bat that was hanging from the ceiling fan. Needless to say, I didn't get a great deal of sleep that night as I always had one eye open

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

It would have to be ice-skating in the open air in Red Square in Moscow at night. It was -9 degrees and my ice-skating was a bit rusty to say the least but it was both surreal and romantic at the same time.

What are your suitcase essentials?

I always seem popular with mosquitoes so I have to take a good insect repellent with me. I also make sure I always have my lip balm, ipod and sunglasses

Where's next on your wishlist?

I'd love to go to the Maldives and stay in a water-bungalow and I'd like to explore the South Pacific Islands. Also Japan is high on the list. The list is endless but at least I'm in the right job to fulfill some of my dreams.

Whilst working for Kuoni I booked a wedding for a couple in a small boutique hotel in Italy. It began with just the bride and groom and 10 guests. It ended up being 40 guests so I had to source other hotels nearby and do my homework to make sure they were up to our standards. It took me over 10 months to arrange, with the bride often sat in front of me in tears as she was so stressed. When they finally flew out I kept everything crossed that it all went to plan. When they returned they came to see me to say that apart from one lost suitcase and a bit of rain, thankfully not on the wedding day, it all went perfectly. I was given a huge bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates as they were so pleased with everything that I had done for them. They became my regular clients and would only book with with me as they were so pleased with the service that I gave. Thankfully all the other holidays were just for two people !!!!

 

 

Hayley's passion for travel started when she was a young girl. She was lucky enough to travel abroad with her family, loving every moment from the atmosphere of the airport to the excitement of getting on a plane and then exploring new countries. This excitement and passion remains today.
