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?

I have recently fallen in love with the Adriatic Coast after a trip to Croatia and Montenegro. The coast line is exquisite. It is riddled with secret swimming holes and the turquoise-hued waters make it the perfect place for a dive. The walled city of Dubrovnik, where the streets are made of marble, make you feel like you have entered another time period. It’s incredible. I am desperate to go back to watch more sunsets with a cocktail in hand!

What's your oddest travel moment?

As a teenager my dream was to become an astronaut so on a trip to Florida with my Aunty, she arranged to go to the Kennedy Space Centre. Walking around and seeing the space shuttles and rockets was incredibly humbling and I found the experience very moving. My Aunty then announced that she had arranged to have lunch with an Astronaut and I was completely blown away to the point of being speechless! Which was very odd indeed!

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

I had woken up early during a boat trip in the Milford Sound and I decided to go up onto the deck. The weather hadn’t been what we were expecting- it was very misty and there was rain in the air but I grabbed a blanket and sat with my feet over the edge at the front of the boat. Sitting there, I felt like I was in Pirates of the Caribbean. There were waterfalls falling into the sea at the side of the fiord and the scenery was so dramatic. To top it off dolphins started jumping at the front of the boat and it felt like if they jumped any higher, they would be touching my feet. I get goose bumps thinking about that moment. It was amazing.

What are your suitcase essentials?

If I’ve got my swimsuit and a good book then I’m sorted!

Where's next on your wishlist?

The list is ever growing! But next year I would love to go to Vietnam and visit Halong Bay. I have yet to go to Asia and I am so excited by the prospect of going and having new experiences!
