Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
I’d say that the Blue Margouillat in La Reunion was one of my favourite places I have stayed at, it’s not the biggest or the grandest but it is a beautiful colonial style boutique hotel over looking the Indian Ocean with loads of native birds, palm trees, fantastic food and I even lucky enough to watch Humpback Whales jumping out of the water whilst I was having breakfast.
What's your oddest travel moment?
Finding my self staying in the mountains of Wudangshan in China getting taught Tai Chi from a Grand Master for a week was quite a surreal moment. I felt miles away from the world, it was like time travelling. It was one of those realisation moments when you think “I can’t believe where I am, how did I end up here?”
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
My perfect travel moment was when I was in a campervan with my wife on the Coromandel Peninsular in New Zealand. We had been driving all day and were looking for a place to park for the night, we found a small beach, protected by trees and rocks and decided to set up camp. I went for a walk to see what was around and found that the beach was lined with rocks covered in Oysters. That evening we played music as the sun went down, drinking beautiful wine that we bought at the wineries we had visited before, looked out over the ocean and ate the freshest Oysters imaginable straight from the rocks.
What are your suitcase essentials?
Hot tip for the suitcase is to pack a short extension lead, therefore you only need to take one travel adaptor but be able to charge four electronic items at the same time.
Where's next on your wishlist?
Next on my list is definitely Kenya, I would love to spend some time on the plains and in the national parks on a safari, seeing all the big cats, elephants, rhinos and have a real adventure
