Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
Is Barbados. It’s so easy to drive around the island (you drive on the same side so no worries), just follow the churches on the maps, as some roads tend to be non-existent. A day out on a catamaran and swimming with turtles was priceless, whilst swimming I thought I’d kicked a person but it was a turtles shell ! Friday nights are a must visit to Oistins, in the south of the island. It’s where the locals cook their catch of the day, you order a beer, grab a pew and wine and dine. Meanwhile you can watch local produce their handicrafts, such as bracelets or join in with the rhythmic dancing. It’s the place where tourists mix with the locals.
What's your oddest travel moment?
When discovering Cuba, I flew around the island on old Russian Dakota planes. The aircraft’s air conditioning were desk fans screwed to the cabin wall and the aircraft door open ! There was even a hostess serving cola whilst the passengers topped up their Coke with their own Havana Club rum. Surreal !
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
I can’t think of any particular one, but they tend to involve my teenage children. Last year in Jamaica, just reading and relaxing by the pool whilst watching my boys play pool volleyball for hours makes me smile.
What are your suitcase essentials?
Everything but the kitchen sink, but in travel bottles. I help out with the Explorer section of a local Scouting Organisation and being a mum as well, one of my mottos are ‘be prepared’
Where's next on your wishlist?
Ohh, I love to discover and explore any new destination as I’m hungry to feed on new cultures. I fancy riding through the Red Rose City in Petra like Indiana Jones. I would especially like to tour Thailand and experience the diversity of the country however I would be ecstatic in hiking along the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, it looks unbelievable.
