My travel tip: If you’re travelling on a connecting flight, I would recommend taking a change of clothes & swim wear in your hand luggage…. just encase! Also, the Apple Air Tags are great for tracking your luggage!

Expertise include, but not limited to: Family Holidays & UK Breaks

Countries Visited So Far: America (Florida,) Canary Islands (Tenerife, Fuerteventura & Lanzarote), Caribbean (Antigua & Jamaica), France (Disneyland Paris), Greece (Zante, Corfu, Crete, Halkidiki & Kos), Maldives, Spain (Costa Daurada – Salou) Balearic Islands(Ibiza & Menorca) Sri Lanka, Turkey, UK breaks (Cornwall especially!)

Most memorable destinations visited to date: 

Definitely Jamaica. When I was younger, I loved Bob Marley and Reggae music (I even had my bedroom decorated in the Jamaica flag colours!) and always dreamed of visiting one day. It definitely lived up to my expectations. The stunning white sandy beaches, the amazing food and most importantly the friendly people make it the most incredible destination for the holiday of a lifetime. 

I would absolutely love to visit Banff in Canada and Kayak on the Moraine lake with my two daughters. Every picture I see of it looks absolutely stunning and I really hope one day I will be lucky enough to visit

Thoroughly research your destination before you visit so you know the best places nearby to explore. I would highly recommend sites such as Google maps and TripAdvisor. Check which restaurants are rated highly online and book before you go. Try and visit the small local restaurants to experience the traditional dishes. If there is a local market nearby check what day of the week it is on to make sure you don’t miss it.

This was the first holiday my son remembers, experiencing swimming with the dolphins, going to the waterpark at the Atlantis, going to the Sand Dunes and watching the Dubai Fountain show – and sneaking into the swimming pool late at night!

Where is on your Bucket List?: 

There are a few places on my bucket list, but the one that is at the top would be Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda, Africa. I love animals, and I think this would just top it off after seeing the Orangutans in Borneo, in their natural habitat.


Travel Tip:  Know exactly what you want from your holiday, so I can get your future holidays PERFECT!
