Favourite destination Europe – there are so many amazing countries, cities and towns offering so much diversity of food, history, culture and architecture
Best travel tip Once you have packed your suitcase once, take about 50% of the stuff out – you won’t need half of the clothes, shoes and make up that you think you will- and you will appreciate it later when you are carting around a suitcase that weighs half the weight and aren’t getting slammed with excess weight charges at the airport!
Worst travel experience Having my flight home from Paris delayed for over 8 hours before eventually being cancelled until the next day… Being stuck in Paris for an extra 24 hours but not being able to use this time to explore this amazing city (instead being stuck out at the airport) was very depressing!

Most memorable travel experience A canoe trip in the Amazon knowing that there were piranha’s in the water below me. Then eating piranha soup for dinner that night!
Favourite destination Greek Islands – in particular Santorini
Best travel tip Ask locals for tips on where to eat out or special places to visit in their city. They may share knowledge with you that will create some of the most memorable experiences of your trip.
Worst travel experience Being in NYC for the ‘Great Black Out of 2003’. The power outage was for almost 24 hours and everything affected! Subway trains weren’t operating so transport was limited to millions of people sharing taxis which caused major chaos. Restaurants and tourist attractions were closed and it was a very hot day so we were very thankful when power the finally came back on!

Travelled to Australia, USA (incl Hawaii), Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan
Next destination East Coast USA
Most memorable travel experience Seeing the delight on my 4yr old’s face when she walked into Disneyland for the first time! Watching the sun rise over Angkor Wat was truly amazing, too!
Favourite destination USA, so far! I love everything Disney, so have been drawn back to the States 5 times. Japan comes a close second place.
Best travel tip I love packing cells – they make packing your suitcase a breeze, and then whilst you’re away it’s easy to find everything! No more rummaging through the whole case to find one particular piece of clothing!
Worst travel experience I’ve been very fortunate not to have anything go wrong on any of my journey’s!
