Tell us what you want from your holiday

What would make a perfect holiday? Tell us who is going with you, what airport you'd like to fly from and any other details we may find useful, such as if it's a special occasion.

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?

Sophie’s favourite destination is South Africa, staying in the Marataba Safari Lodge. From the moment you arrive you feel like a family member rather than a hotel guest, the tour guides are so passionate about their work and the animals it makes you feel blessed to be apart from the experience and to be immersed in their natural environment surrounded by beautiful animals is still a surreal thought.

What's your oddest travel moment?

When travelling to Costa Rica, Sophie was walking back from the beach and a monkey strolled very casually over to her and decided to launch itself onto the tree and steal her sunglasses in the process. The whole situation was very amusing and she never saw those sunglasses again!

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

Sophie has so many spectacular perfect holiday moments, but by far the most memorable was sitting in a tiny speedboat with two other passengers, including the guide and sitting watching a Hump Back Whale and her baby swim up and down with not a single other person in the area. It was breath taking.

What are your suitcase essentials?

Sophie’s suitcase essential is always an extension lead. She goes away with a collection of cameras, video cameras, phone and iPad and needs a full charge every night to be prepared for the million photographs she takes on every holiday.

Where's next on your wishlist?

The next destination on her Wish list is Vietnam, Sophie has always wanted to go but never had the opportunity to visit and explore everything the country has to offer. She has many destinations on her wish list and aims to visit each and every single one!

Sophie has always had a passion for travel from a young age and have been fortunate enough to travel the world with her family and will continue to travel on her own now. She has worked within the travel industry both during and after completing a tourism degree at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. Her passion and knowledge for the world comes through in every conversation and Sophie is just excited as your holiday plans as you are.
