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?

The best hotel has to be The One and Only Royal Mirage Hotel in Dubai. The whole experience was unforgettable, from the service to the décor. My husband actually proposed to me on the beach of this hotel and the support he received from the team there was impeccable. I was absolutely blown away. They have a way of making you feel like the only guests even though its a huge property. Plus the Jetty beach bar has the best view of the sunsets..... And cocktails are just the cherry on top.

What's your oddest travel moment?

It would have to be in Bangkok when I was wandering around Silom for the first time. I followed my nose to what a thought, must be the most amazing street food in the world because the queue was quite long. After several minute of not paying attention I found myself at the front of the line, and stood in front of a Buddhist monk. He looked just as confused as I did but proceeded to bless me with a red mark on my forehead. I walked out still hungry and a mark on my face that took 4 days to come off.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

I think I've had quite a few perfect travel moments. But probably the most defining one was standing on the observation deck of the space needle in Seattle watching the sun go down, and realising that if I hadn't gone there just because I was on my own I would never have seen how beautiful the city looked at night from that iconic tower. It inspired me to travel more on my own because if you wait around for people to do things with you, you might never get to do them. So grab the opportunity while you can.

What are your suitcase essentials?

Guidebooks are a must for me on any trip. Even if it's a short city break. I dog-ear the pages of the things I have to do or see..... But that usually means pretty much every page has the corner turned.

Where's next on your wishlist?

It would definitely be to visit the mountain gorillas in Rwanda. I absolutely love wildlife and there's nothing more amazing then seeing an animal in it's natural habitat.

I fell love with the idea of travel at age 5 when I found a photo of my mum from the early 80's in Tunisia. I knew I wanted to have an experience like that. I would dream of traveling all over the world so I decided to work as Emirates cabin crew for 1 year. I loved it so much it ended up being 6 years! Now after traveling all over the world and having experiences of a lifetime, I decided to get my feet back on through ground
