Life is in the detail

Take the boat out to the Scilly Cay, a tiny islet of Anguilla, to experience food heaven. Fresh caught lobster, barbecued there and then, served with a delicious curry sauce and washed down with rum punch.

My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • The Himalayas

Best Moments

  • Getting engaged in the Selous in Tanzania has to be the most memorable! Sun rising with hippos wallowing and impala grazing around our tent deck - it was pretty special!

Toughest Travel Moment

  • OK, there may have been tougher ones, but one that comes to mind was arriving at (the completely wonderful) Kasbah du Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco on the back of a mule. It's the way everyone arrives, but it's not that comfortable and you have to smile politely!

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Back to the engagement in Tanzania! We had no reception at all for the next 48 hours (well planned!) so we celebrated with our guide and a wonderful couple in their 60's!
