Life is in the detail

Kayak through the protected Saco do Mamangua fjord in Brazil and then climb the area’s very own Sugarloaf for spectacular views of the surrounding islands, safe in the knowledge you'll be the only ones there.

My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • India. Been on the bucket list for far too long
  • See tigers in the wild - I am obsessed with them!
  • Do a road trip of US west coast
  • Get fit and hike the Annapurnas in Nepal
  • Ride the Silk Route

Best Moments

  • Crossing the salt flats from Chile into Bolivia was an amazing experience, the landscapes are simply stunning and completely unforgettable
  • Walking into Buenos Aires International Airport to see our flight home had been cancelled, giving us 3 extra days in Buenos Aires where we watched the Polo Open Final, gorged on yet more steak and splurged our last pesos in Palermo's endless chic boutiques

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Strutting down Ipanema Beach on the first day of a winter break; you feel thoroughly inferior to the bikini clad Brazilian beauties! Best wait for your tan to take hold…

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Travelling from Honduras to Belize by speedboat - initially I laughed at our 'captain's' apparel - consisting of a pair of goggles worn over aviators and an ancient wetsuit. After three hours of crashing up and down with waves pouring into the boat I was seasick, soaking and very contrite.
