I'm obsessed with travel, so getting to check out hot-off-the-press offers, discover amazing new travel brands and find out about some incredible destinations doesn't really feel like work to me! If I wasn't in England at the moment, I would no doubt be gallivanting round America somewhere - I'm dying to rent a big van with my best mates and take on those long, endless straight roads. One day!
If I could, I'd take a football everywhere I go, especially to those long meetings! It's almost an international language, get a ball out and meet some locals next time you go abroad!
I wandered around the continent for a few months in 2007, partied with the locals, spoke lots of Spanish and ate far too much. Muy bueno!
I worked there on my gap year, ate lots of pizza and ice cream, stayed out late and waved my arms a lot when speaking bad Italian.
I love scouring the web to find cheap hotels, especially luxury five-star ones (or calling them directly and spinning stories to get upgrades - cheeky!)
TRAVEL TIP - "Travel light, get rid of excess baggage (physically and mentally) and do like the locals do..."
A week in Portugal, swimming in the sun
The Benicassim festival in Spain followed by a week in Barcelona. Very little sleep and a lot of fun.
Pile in a Cadillac and drive coast-to-coast across the USA.
I've had two broken ankles and a serious stomach bug that ended up in a stay in hospital in the Dominican Republic. Not the best few weeks!
A few good mates, some good books and a football.
On the go - I get bored very quickly.
I'm quite happy to slum it if I can save a bit of cash, although a cheeky five-star hotel or top quality restaurant always helps, erm, enhance the holiday experience!
You can buy a steak the size of your face in Buenos Aires for a few quid, which as a guy who likes his meat, is my idea of heaven. But nothing beats a Sunday roast in good old England!
