Your details

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

The most amazing place was Hayman Island in the Whitsundays off the coast of Australia. I ate crocodile, parascended off the back of a speedboat, had THE most amazing room with a butler service breakfast served on the balcony. Unfortunately this was a work trip so shared with another agent rather than the hubby.

What's your oddest travel moment?

Whilst backpacking in New Zealand, I checked into a hostel quite late in the evening whilst everyone else was tucked up in their beds. When I woke the next morning I realised all the other people were blokes and I had slept in the wrong dorm οΎ– very embarrassing.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

Yes, I was on a safari in Kenya. We had dinner and were sat close to a watering hole quite late in the evening. Most of the other guests had gone to bed when there was a rustle through the trees and a herd of elephants came walking through. We were so close and it was so quiet, the parent elephants were helping the baby elephants have a drink. So beautiful it made me cry.

What are your suitcase essentials?

P20 sun protection, you apply 15 minutes before you go into the sun and don't have to reapply all day, perfect!

Where's next on your wishlist?

Sri Lanka and the Maldives. I've been on a work trip and absolutely loved both places. I need to go back with my husband and son.

"Fantastic customer service from Joanne who dealt with our honeymoon booking. Friendly, helpful and called/emailed when she said she would."

Joanne's love of travel was sparked when her parents sent her on a school cruise at the age of 13. Once she was old enough to pay for herself, she backpacked around the world, drove across America, travelled the width of Canada by train and fell in love with the food and wine in South Africa.
