Budapest. We mixed a sunny city break with dancing nights away at Sziget Festival, held on an island the middle of the Danube.
Costa Rica. It was a joy to explore this tropical country where locals are rightly proud of their diverse wildlife and beautiful landscapes. Pura Vida.
A yachting holiday around the Mediterranean. I need to learn to sail first though.
I lost my passport in the middle of the Amazon and had to stay in the rainforest for an extra week while I sorted it out. But, proving that every cloud has a silver lining I got to have my first decent cup of English tea in four months at the consulate's office.
Good friends and good books.
SUNLOUNGER OR ALWAYS ON THE GO?
I'm a sunlounger (but I'm reasonably active when I'm not on a beach).
WHAT'S A GREAT DEAL FOR YOU?
I'm always looking for a great deal on accommodation, and I'll save money by opting for basic if necessary - it just means I have more cash to splurge once I get to my destination.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THE BEST FOOD?
Italy. I'm an ice cream addict!
