Life is in the detail

Make sure to get a window seat when you fly into the Maldives. I thought all of the images you see of the Maldives were edited… turns out they aren’t.

My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Climb a mountain, Everest is a bit extreme for my little legs, so let's go with Kilimanjaro
  • Go on an safari in Africa
  • Dive in Indonesia, it is meant to be the best diving spot in the world/learn to dive
  • Snorkel with a whale shark in Mexico
  • Road trip through California

Best Moments

  • Skydiving in New Zealand - unbelievable!
  • Stargazing at Lake Wanaka, the Milky Way was so clear and there was zero light pollution
  • Seeing Halong Bay
  • My favourite place: watching the sun go down over the plains of Mara North in the Masai Mara (mutually.scarring.stomachs in the What3Words world)

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Long tail boat from Bali to the Gili Islands, via Lombok with food poisoning… not recommended

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Taking a donkey-drawn sleigh on wheels from Gili Trawangan port to my hotel, complete with disco ball, flashing lights and blaring music.
