Travel has always been of real interest to me, and even though I joined Abbotts Travel in 2004, I’m still learning.
I’m very lucky to have travelled to some great destinations and look forward to more great experiences.
Where I’ve Been
In the United States, Florida can keep anyone entertained, while New York has a lot to offer and lives up to the saying "shop till you drop".
I am a huge fan of Las Vegas and the Bellagio, where they have an amazing fountain display, best experienced at night. By day, I relax by lounging beside the pool or do a spot of shopping.
I've also done St Patrick's Day in Chicago. One word: madness.
Cruising the Mediterranean was a a great way to experience some lovely places, and I loved waking up every morning in a different port; Zante and Kos are great Greek islands for a party holiday.
Cyprus deserves a mention. Paphos is a great destination for luxury hotels – I stayed at the Asimina Suites – and the harbour is ringed by great restaurants. It offers you relaxation and history – take your pick.
I had an incredible trip to Bangkok and Phuket and the highlight, which I will forever be grateful for, was to interact with the elephants at Elephant Hills.
I love the year-round climate and impeccable service of Dubai. Away from the city, the beaches are fantastic and there is so much to do such as shopping malls, ski slopes and amazing diamonds - I even got my engagement ring there. I would recommend the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray hotel for indulgence.
My newest love is Barbados where Caribtours kindly took me to some amazing hotels including the Coral Reef and the infamous Sandy Lane which definitely lives up to its reputation.
Most Embarrassing Travel Experience?
Me and four friends sinking a boat in Zante, and getting rescued by some very nice boys in their boat… scary and embarrassing!
