Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
Oh there are so many places to choose from, but I just have to say St Lucia when I experienced two hotels, Sandals Halcyon Beach and St James Club Morgan Bay. The atmosphere of the locals is so friendly and energetic. A highlight was sailing the Caribbean Sea from the top of the island to the bottom to see the iconic Pitons and exotic botanic gardens. Relaxing with a BBC cocktail (Baileys, Banana, Colada) and listening to Bob Marley by the Pool ﾖ perfect.
What's your oddest travel moment?
I haven't yet experienced an odd travel moment but if this question was your funniest moment I would have loads J!
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
My perfect travel moment was a Dolphin and Sunset cruise from Kurumba in the Maldives. It was just an amazing experience; the crew on board were so friendly and welcoming. They brought out some drums and got some of us dancing on the deck (although I was too scared as we were riding the waves at the time and thought I would go overboard). The sunset was beautiful and, with the islands of the Maldives in the background, it was a picture I will keep in my memory forever.
What are your suitcase essentials?
Carmex Lip Balm! Travel sickness bands (they worked a treat for the speedboat transfers in the Maldives) My underwater camera ﾖ I've had brilliant photos from past holidays, from the waterpark in Dubai and pool in St Lucia to the ocean in Antigua and the Maldives
Where's next on your wishlist?
I will have to say a Tanzania safari, experiencing the country's key natural wonders ﾖ Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National park and Tarangire National Park and after the safari relaxing on the idyllic island of Zanzibar. Also on top of my list is a tour through Japan! My Travel Wishlist is growing everyday working for Kuoni.
