What is your favourite travel experience or story?
Horse riding through Wicklow Mountains National Park in Ireland. I’ve never seen so much green!
What's your travel style?
Luxury combined with immersive cultural experiences and beautiful nature views.
Preferred Way To Stay: Hotel for shorter stays, Airbnb for longer stays. I like all the creature comforts and security of hotels, until I’m staying long enough to do multiple loads of washing. Then I want my own laundry facilities!
How do you decide which places to visit?
Word of mouth, but I also gravitate towards places that align with my interests. As a history buff, I love a medieval city!
What is your #1 travel tip?
Set your watch to your destination’s time as soon as you board the plane.
What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
- See the Northern Lights in Iceland

- Go on a chocolate tour in Belgium
Window seat or aisle?
