Tell us about you
I’m the quirky girl that likes to sit with the locals and chat about their day, find out their favourite places to go, best things to eat. I like to immerse myself in the culture and learn the traditions, the language, devour the local cuisine and treat myself to local liquor.
Favourite travel destination and why:
Japan, the food ignites my soul! The general harmony that you can feel, as you walk amongst possibly the most eclectic range of people, in one small space at one time. Visually distracting and vibrant.
Most recent adventure
Painting with artists in Ubud.
Best travel memory
The beautiful people in Siem Reap and Sihanoukville in Cambodia. Cycling and motorcycling around, getting lost and found again. Chatting to the locals, eating at their favourite restaurants, and all the rich culture.
Best travel tips
Always carry toilet paper. Learn the basics in every language you come across. Interact with the locals, don’t feel compelled to follow the tourists.
Favourite food experience
Flying Chicken in Hong Dae, South Korea, or any of the 24 hour bbq restaurants in Korea. Breakfast bbq is the best way to cure a hangover!
Any advice for people considering embarking on the trip of a lifetime
Leave with an open mind, and prepare to be amazed every single day!
Which country is next on your list to experience and why
Turkey - I want to have a mud bath in Denizli, and hot air balloon over Cappadocia, get off the beaten track and meet the locals of Anatolia!
