Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
I've been to some beautiful destinations but I have to say that I was blown away on my recent stay at The Datai in Langkawi, Malaysia. Set back in the rainforest, surrounded by amazing wildlife, every moment felt like a dream. My highlight was sitting on my balcony late one evening, in my fluffy white bathrobe and slippers and barely being able to hear my own voice over the sounds of the rainforest - it was breathtaking!
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
I've had a few on my travels. I'd say the ones that stick out for me are mainly on my trip to South Africa. I had one evening sitting on Blouberg Beach as the sun went down, the sky turning a stunning shade of pink and orange over the crashing waves. Kite-surfers were taking full advantage of the incoming stormy weather and we sat watching them silhouetted against the colourful sky as we huddled under a blanket to keep warm and sheltered from the wind. Suddenly we were watching an extremely intense lightning storm developing over Table Mountain. The bolts of electricity were so bright that they lit up the stunning backdrop of the mountain and the sea. Such an intense moment I will never forget. I also got the opportunity to witness a local celebration in Bo Kaap - Tweede Nuwe Jaar - where the locals came out dressed in their finest outfits and played drums and brass instruments as they danced and sang merrily, allowing us to quietly observe the celebration and sometimes even join in the festivities. It was a rare and special moment.
What are your suitcase essentials?
My camera equipment has to be first on the list. There's nothing better than capturing that perfect moment on film. I also like to take a pocket guide of the area with me for all my top tips. Finally, antibacterial hand gel is a must for the discerning germ-a-phobe abroad. Forget travelling, I don't go ANYWHERE without it!
Where's next on your wishlist?
Where isn't on my list?! There's so many places I'm yet to discover. I want to explore more of the USA, Hawaii and the Caribbean. I've always wanted to volunteer to help the orangutans in Borneo and walk alongside the elephants on the Elephant Hills Jungle Safari in Thailand too. There's so much choice!
