Best Moments

  • Venice - my favourite city, I've been many times and love exploring off the tourist trail. A highlight was being there for Festa della Salute one November when a pontoon bridge was built across the Grand Canal. Oddly, I've never been for Carnevale - I think it would be too busy and not the Venice I love.
  • Celebrating a special birthday with a trip to Vietnam & Cambodia - loved it all but highlights were Halong Bay, a cooking course in Hoi An, then the temples of Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and Banteay Srei.

Toughest Travel Moment

  • A very late -running train at Jenbach station in Austria.Travelling alone and first class, so at far end of platform and couldn't hear announcements. Train turned up. Got on. Someone in my seat. Looked out of window to see my mother frantically signalling I should get off, fortunately I managed to get off. It was actually a train for Italy, not Germany. Nearly missed my plane at Munich too, check in was literally closing and I had to run through the airport to get to the plane. Not the most relaxing of journeys!

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • During a site inspection of a hotel in the Seychelles, on a fam trip, everyone was introduced to the hotel manager. When it was my turn, he told me he knew where I lived, and he was correct! It transpired his brother lived a few doors along from me....small world!!
