Life is in the Detail

There is a tiny, hidden beach on the southern tip of Kefalonia in Greece. No one knows about it and you can only reach it on foot. The towering grey cliffs that surround and hide it are made of a clay that works wonders on your skin, after you wash it off in the sea. It’s a little slice of Greek paradise.

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Sail around the Galapagos islands, exploring above the sea and below it
  • Swim with Humpback whales
  • Ride mustangs from the Mexican to the Canadian border
  • Come eye to eye with Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda

Best Moments

  • Riding my favourite horse, Sioux, while pushing a herd of 125 horses home across a gigantic pasture at 5.30 in the morning, watching the golden pink sunrise crest the ridges that were next to me. Mist was hanging low over the river and the morning silence was broken only by the water bubbling over rocks and the horses hooves.
  • Watching Orangutans in Borneo. We saw a mother being handed fruit by one of the guides and sharing it with her baby, while an unruly teenager dangled above the suspended platform trying to steal the fruit (and her attention)
  • Seeing a lone wolf trotting across the snow in Yellowstone National Park. It was the last day the park was open before it would then shut for winter. Snow was falling heavily and there were no other cars for miles. It was truly magical.

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Getting lost skiing in a storm at the top of Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler. The snow was so thick I couldn't see my hands, the wind so strong I couldn't stand upright and it was so cold that my breath froze on my face protector.

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Finding a leech burrowing into my (very thick) glove in the rainforest. I was told, very casually, to 'pick it off, roll it and flick it away'
