Best travel memory

Playing acoustic guitar with a mate and a local Greek resident on the balcony of his windmill villa in Oia, Santorini, as the sun set over the Aegean in front of us. Fairly awesome experience!!

Best travel tips

Whatever country you are going to, you only need one power adaptor. Take a power board from home and you can instantly charge everything at once!

Tell us about you

I’m a sunny locations kind of gal. I love music, eating out and, of course, travelling the globe.

Favourite travel destination and why

Iceland – it’s the closest you’ll come to being on another planet.

Most recent adventure

Learning to surf in San Sebastian, Spain, and then decided to leave the beach and eat tapas instead!

Best travel tips

If you ever find yourself in Mexico, never accept free tequila the night before a 7am flight back to New York.

Favourite food experience

I’ve been drowning my fries in mayonnaise ever since Belgium.

Any advice for people considering embarking on the trip of a lifetime

Come and visit me at My Adventure Store and I’ll help you plan! (Is it cool if I come too?)

Which country is next on your list to experience and why?

I like to go for the ‘throw a dart at a map’ method. It’s just too hard to choose otherwise.

 

Tell us about you

My travels over the past 10 years have taken me to all corners of our amazing world from Mexico to Russia, USA to Spain, NZ and Australia. I love exploring new cultures, histories and meeting people from all ways of life. 

Favourite travel destination and why

Mexico wins hands down on my favourite destination. The culture, the food, the people, the tequila! There is no place comparable to the welcoming smiling faces of Mexicans and their vibrant way of life.

What countries have you visited?

Mexico, Canada, Russia, Spain, UK, USA, NZ, Australia and Finland

Most recent adventure

My most recent adventure was living and studying in Spain.

Best travel memory

My best travel memory is meeting a guy in Mexico at a party who was so excited to meet an Australian. He then proceeded to tell me all about Australian wildlife and how he was so excited to visit Australia because his old Australian roommate had told him all about the ‘Drop Bear’.

Best travel tips

ALWAYS take Imodium, just in case!

Favourite food experience

Eating Reindeer in Finland. Wouldn’t do it again.

Any advice for people considering embarking on the trip of a lifetime

Do it, now!

Which country is next on your list to experience and why

My next adventure is going to be based in Central America - I want to dive in Honduras, Hike in Guatemala and sip cocktails on the beach in Costa Rica!
