Tell us about you

I’ve lived and travelled throughout Asia and spent a lot of time in China. Recalling my travelling tales and cooking tips keeps me going until the next trip.

Favourite travel destination and why

I love the thrill of a new place. The excitement as you exit the plane, train or ship you’ve taken to get there and experience the smells, the food, the faces. My favourite destination is the next one!

Best travel memory

Highlights for me would have to be taking the train around European cities and taking in the changing scenery along the Trans-Siberian Railway, hopping on and off and hiking and camping through sun, snow and rain across this huge country.

Tell us about you

I spent the last 2 years travelling through Europe - I love it and never want to stop! I’ve also been through South East Asia and have South & Central America in my horizons. I think travelling is the only thing that makes you richer!

Best travel memory

Running through the streets of Spain with the marching band from the bull fight stadium at San Fermin covered in Sangria and food.
