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

The Burj Al Arab, in Dubai was just amazing! The building itself is stunning and inside the d'cor is equally impressive. My room had floor to ceiling windows, giving fantastic views and was built on two levels with living room, guest bathroom and luggage storage downstairs, while upstairs had a huge bedroom, bathroom and walk-in dressing room - it was bigger than my flat! Luxurious extras like Bulgari (full size) toiletries made everything that little bit extra special. Each evening at 6pm our butler arrived with sparkling wine (non-alcoholic) and canapes. My three night stay was the height of luxury and indulgence , which everyone should allow themselves once in a while!

What's your oddest travel moment?

During a trip to Nepal, I spent three nights trekking in the Himalayas, sharing a tent with a girl who believed in looking her best at all times! Each morning our sherpas would wake us before sunrise with a hot drink, after which she would get out her make-up bag and mirror and proceed to put on her full 'war paint', including bright red lipstick! To the utter amazement of the sherpas and the rest of us, she would emerge 20 minutes later with immaculate hair, make up and clothes, to join us for breakfast as the sun rose over Mount Everest. I never did work out how she managed in the dark and with a pocket mirror!

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

Sailing round the Whitsunday Islands, we anchored off the coast of one of the smaller islands for the night. There were no lights, other than on the boat and no noises other than the lapping of the ocean. After dinner, the captain was telling a few stories over a glass of wine, when he suddenly stopped and pointed out towards the sea. A huge area of the water seemed to be glistening and sparkling with tiny white lights. Everyone fell silent and watched in awe as these micro sea creatures gradually moved towards us, surrounded the boat and then floated on their way. It was an utterly peaceful and beautiful moment, never to be repeated.

What are your suitcase essentials?

Spare sunglasses ' I cannot survive without sunglasses anywhere (even in the UK) and since I have the tendency to put them down and forget them, or sit on them, I always need to make sure I have a spare pair!

Where's next on your wishlist?

To return to Australia and visit the two regions I have not yet seen ' Western Australia and Tasmania. My dream is to swim with whale sharks, and the Ningaloo Reef off the coast of WA is one of the best places to experience this. As well as this, both areas have some amazing scenery and great wine ' what more do you need! For my next relaxation holiday, the Bahamas is top of my list, where the sea looks crystal clear and the beaches pure white. The smaller islands offer a real 'get away from it all' option.

"Just would like to say a big "THANK YOU" to Pam for helping us in choosing our holiday. Pam was very friendly, helpful and a credit to the company and I am sure we will not be disappointed and hope to have a wonderful time.

Pam's career choice was decided after a six-week trip to the USA aged 18. Working for various travel companies and enjoying an array of roles and many travel opportunities expanded her knowledge and experience, both of which she brought to Kuoni when joining the Bristol store in 2009.
