Life is in the detail

Explore the beautiful tea plantations of Sri Lanka - they are magical, and in my case made all the more special because that's where my husband popped the question!

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Spend the night on a house boat in Kerala -having lived on a house boat in London for two years, I'm longing to see the contrast and experience a slightly warmer and more luxurious version!
  • Go trekking in Nepal and dipping my toes into the Himalayan way of life-I'm definitely not a mountaineer but love walking and feel this would be the perfect way to experience the majesty of the mountains without having to don crampons
  • Take my little boy on safari -he may be a bit young at the moment (1yr…) but he's already showing a keen interest in animals I think experiencing something as special as a safari together as a family will be incredible
  • Go to Lapland and do the whole shebang -dog sledding, ice hotel and Tree house hotel
  • Patagonia -I feel like it's going to be an icy version of Namibia in terms of dramatic scenery and lack of people -bliss.

Best Moments

  • Seeing a wilderbeast river crossing in the Masai Mara during the migration
  • Flying over the skeleton coast and landing on a completely deserted beach for lunch surrounded by seals, shipwrecks and not a soul for miles
  • My first snorkel in the Maldives - it's a real life aquarium-amazing
  • Seeing humpback whales jumping out of the ocean whilst on a tiny hobie cat in Mozambique

Toughest Travel Moment

  • This might sound odd, but going to the Amalfi coast alone…its breathtakingly beautiful and it's a tragedy not to share that with someone!

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Being allowed to fly the plane for take off by a rather trusting pilot in Namibia
