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

Khoa Lak in Thailand was one of the most amazing destinations I have ever visited. To see the lime stone mountains in the middle of the ocean was breath taking. I even got the chance to canoe along the river bank seeing monkeys and all sorts of wildlife. I stayed at the J W Marriott Khoa Lak, which was a haven mixing the traditional wooden architecture of Thailand with modem luxury of a 5 star and their Pad Thai was to die for.

What's your oddest travel moment?

My oddest moment must be in Mexico. I was visiting an ancient Mayan tribe that still live by the land and their traditions. We were welcomed in to their home where the family sat cooking by the open fire. Their home was best described as a thatched hut with woven carpets on the floor and hammocks hanging from wall to wall. I thought to myself what a great cultural experience. As we sat down to eat I did notice that they had a modern day stereo in the corner of the room, I had to laugh to myself “where do they plug it in”. In the next breath one of the children pulled out a smart phone to take a picture. Just goes to show modern technology gets everywhere!

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

My perfect travel moment would be in Khao Lak Thailand. I discovered the secrets of a private garden spa. It was like having a small taste of Eden; with its outdoor rain shower, private Jacuzzi that was filled with rose petals and not forgetting the sauna. All of this just for me! With the smell of blossom I lay enjoying a Thai massage hearing the laps of the sea, reliving the events of the day before trekking through the jungle back to the hotel

What are your suitcase essentials?

I cannot leave without my sea shoes, being a water baby I love to snorkel and dive at every opportunity. With my sea shoes I can tackle any rocky cove, dodge hot sands and any sea urchin that may be lurking. My iPod for music is a must, I love creating a playlist for every destination I visit, and certain songs bring back great travel memories. I love a good book by the pool as I can’t be active and trek everywhere all the time.

Where's next on your wishlist?

Where isn’t …… that’s a hard question. My number one destination would be India. Since a very young age I have had a fascination with its people, culture and history. Bali would be another fantastic destination for me as I love to explore and the hotel Alila Ubud sounds perfect. A complete contrast and dream would be a North American road trip from Nashville to San Francisco taking in New Orleans, Las Vegas and Yosemite National park along the way.

Kay’s Passion for travel has been with her for as long as she can remember. It started with her first family holiday to the island of Menorca. Since then she has zipped wired through the Jungles or Mexico, Dived with the wild sea turtles of the red sea, got lost in the souks lined streets of Tunisia, and swayed to the rhythms of Cuba.
