Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
The best place I have ever stayed would have to be our 2 week adventure to Akumal Bay in Mexico with my partner. We were travelling to celebrate our anniversary, and the staff could not have made us feel more welcome. With views of the glistening turquoise Caribbean Sea from our rooftop terrace complete with Jacuzzi, and the sound of the surrounding jungle humming with life, this trip is still yet to be beaten… although we try very hard!
What's your oddest travel moment?
During our stay at Sandals Halcyon Beach in St Lucia, we booked an excursion with a local guide called Greg. Whilst driving through the dense hills of the Castries and Soufriere area in an open top Land Rover, and hiking on foot through the jungle to the waterfalls, armed with large sticks ready to fight off venomous snakes, we came across a local farmer in his banana plantations. He had a pop up shack where he was handing out samples of his delicious fresh mango, coconut and sugar cane, using his machete like a butter knife. Barefooted, he shouted not to eat the sugar cane, but to chew its fibres and extract their sweetness! Closely followed by a vivid red homemade Rum Punch, this soon turned into pleasant memories!
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
During our 2 week Mexican adventure with my partner, the hotel staff told us the ideal time and place to see the turtles on our very own beach. At just before 6am one morning, with the sun just on the horizon, we were swimming alone in the sea with half a dozen beautiful Green Sea Turtles, each one as graceful as the next. It was the most magical and intimate moment of any holiday, and the Turtles were not fazed by our presence one bit. Watching their natural behaviour in the water was just breath-taking!
What are your suitcase essentials?
Making sure we capture as many incredible moments as possible, I always pack our Action Camera ready for our adventures. I love to show friends and family pictures of our amazing trips when we get back! And for the moments when we are relaxing by the pool or listening to the water lapping on the beach, a good book is a must in my suitcase. Any genre, I’m not fussy!
Where's next on your wishlist?
I naturally have a list as long as my arm of places I’d love to visit, it’s an occupational hazard! I’m saving a big trip for a special occasion! I have a passion to visit Africa and go on Safari to see the Big Five and the migration by hot air balloon, but extend the trip with a beautiful stay in the Maldives (hopefully in an Over-Water Villa!) I’ve only dreamt of the Indian Ocean so far… my partner just needs to pop the question so I can live my dream as my honeymoon!
