Your details

Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
There are so many wonderful places to choose from and other than the Maldives, I think it has to be Thala Beach Lodge in Australia - the rain forest eco lodges are nestled into the headland with easy access to the beach and rainforest, you see amazing wildlife walking outside your lodge and have the chance to kayak off the coast where I saw dolphin and turtles and at night. Here, you can star spot using their telescopes at the unique observatory - it is a truly amazing experience!

What's your oddest travel moment?
Recently I stayed at the Selous Riverside Camp in Tanzania and was trying to have a shower in my luxury tent, when the water suddenly cut off. I got dressed and popped outside to find a baboon drinking the water from the main water supply to my shower! He then promptly turned the tap off and ran back up into his tree!

Have you had a perfect travel moment?
One would have to be driving along the Nullarbor Plain in South Australia, which is the long desert road that stretches from Western Australia to South Australia. In an old campervan, we drove in the dark and had to slow down and stop as suddenly hundreds of kangaroos came out of the bush and were mesmerised by the van's head lamps - some with their babies in their pouches. It was a truly unique experience!

What are your suitcase essentials?
Mosquitoes love me, so I always take a good repellent, as well as vitamin B tablets. I also pack an iPod and my iPhone, a big hat and always a pair of trainers.

Where's next on your wishlist?
Gosh what a question! I would like to travel more in Africa - so more safaris, but I have always wanted to travel to the pacific and explore the French Polynesian islands. I'd like to see more of America - maybe drive Route 66 on a Harley Davidson! The list will never be complete but I'm lucky I'm in the right Job!
