I’ve been working in the travel industry for 18 years. For me, it’s all about experiencing different cultures, food, music and making memories that will last a lifetime. I’ve been lucky enough to climb one of the world's highest sand dunes, sky dive over Queenstown, walk over the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge and swim with sharks in the Maldives. But, my standout moment will always be drinking the most amazing glass of red wine whilst watching the whales swim by in South Africa!
Favourite destination: New Zealand
I would have to say New Zealand is my favourite destination. The scenery is simply breathtaking, plus it has some of the world’s best wineries and the food is fabulous. I love the contrast between the North and South Islands, and it has the most unspoilt and beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen.
Favourite hotel: Birkenhead House
Birkenhead House South Africa is unforgettable. This hotel offers some of the best views and best food I’ve ever experienced. Its beachfront location gives you an unspoilt view of the Hermanus coastline where, if you’re lucky, you might spot the whales coming in close to the shore. The wine selection in fantastic, with the most perfect pairings at mealtimes. The service is so personal, yet discreet, and you’re made to feel so welcome. The elephant coffee is also the perfect way to end your evening!

Your top tips for travellers
- Create a soundtrack! For me hearing a certain song reminds me of a holiday. If you hear a particular song whilst away, remember it, hold on to it and then every time you listen to it, it brings the holiday back to you.
- Have a meal planned for your first evening. Even if it’s just an early dinner, after a long journey it’s reassuring to have something booked for when you arrive.
- As they say in the Maldives “no news, no shoes”. Give yourself the opportunity to take time away from pressures of the modern world and to relax and connect with who you are with and with where you are.
