THE ALGARVE
I love summer trips to the incredible beaches on the other side of the Ria Formosa National Park.

AMSTERDAM
Yes, Amsterdam has a seedy side. But it's also one of the prettiest European cities I've ever visited, full of wonderfully warm people and quirky, creative attractions.

ITALY
My family came from the south of Italy, but I reckon I've spent more time visiting the northern cities.

BRAZIL
I spent six months trekking through the Amazon, sunbathing on beautiful beaches and getting my feet in a tangle attempting to samba. It wasn't nearly enough time for this vast and varied country.

Holiday Quiz

LAST HOLIDAY
Budapest. We mixed a sunny city break with dancing nights away at Sziget Festival, held on an island the middle of the Danube.
BEST HOLIDAY
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.
DREAM HOLIDAY
A yachting holiday around the Mediterranean. I need to learn to sail first though.
TRAVEL NIGHTMARE
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.
TRAVEL COMPANIONS
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!
“I can be a bit of a travel geek - so I'd always recommend reading a bit about your destination's history and culture before you go away.”
