If we need to get in touch, when is the best time to give you a call about your holiday?

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

Whilst travelling through Sri Lanka, I visited the highlands in Nuwara Eliya to help pluck tea with the local tea pickers. Whilst I was there, I checked into the Heritance Tea Factory Hotel, which was absolutely stunning and had such a British charm about it. Three walls of each room were windows, framing the most beautiful views of the tumbling tea plantations for miles! Truly breath-taking.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

I have had so many perfect travel moments but one of my most memorable would be when I arrived in Hoi An, Vietnam. Multi-coloured lanterns were lit and hung as far as the eye could see, filling whole walkways and doorways. Small paper wishing lanterns sailed down the river, whilst people released them on little canoes. To make things even more amazing and atmospheric, speciality coffee shops lined the rustic Asian roads, baking fresh banana bread that could be smelt all the way down the river….idyllic!

What are your suitcase essentials?

Over the years, I am slowly becoming a much lighter traveller, but my suitcase essentials would definitely be a power bank; this is incredibly useful for keeping your phone or camera recharged on those long day trips, making sure you don’t miss a view point! Also, an extension cable - this means you only need to take one travel plug and it saves the argument of whose phone has more battery percentage! Last but not least, a good sun cream is vital! Being from the North of England, and fair of skin, I am not used to much sun and seem to be prone to turning a little pink!

Where's next on your wishlist?

Latin America is next on my wish list. I would absolutely love to back pack through Brazil (preferably when the Rio carnival is on in February), then fly to Peru and finish with the breath-taking sites of Match Pitchu!

Luci has a great enthusiasm and eagerness to travel, with a passion for learning about and experiencing different cultures and then sharing this knowledge with others, inspiring and motivating them. She is attempting to visit every continent before she is 30! Luci thrives on being able to help others follow their travel dreams and explore other cultures and places further afield. Being tea obsessed and a self proclaimed foodie, Luci spends her spare time attempting to make authentic homemade dim sum and sipping espresso martinis!
