I travel for...
Whether they are man-made or natural wonders I love visiting places with stunning landscapes which really take your breath away. When I visited China I walked the 10km along the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall. No about of photos can explain the feeling of standing on something so iconic and impressive. In 2015 I visited Iguazu Falls on the border of Brazil and Argentina, ever since seeing photos of them they were added to my bucket list – the sheer size and amount of water rushing over the rocks makes you feel very small in comparison.
As a self-confessed foodie I love nothing more than trying new dishes whether in one of Brighton’s many restaurants or in another country. Within my first few hours in Bangkok I ate two Pad-Thai, a banana shake and chocolate crepes and that was only the beginning. Undoubtedly some of my best food moments were in China where steaming dim-sum dumplings, spicy Sichuan peppers and sticky Peking duck all added to my experience where food is such an integral part of their culture. A country which surprised me with the sheer variety of food on offer was Brazil. Not really knowing what to expect other than steak I was happy to find Amazonian fruit juices, tasty sandwiches from street corner kiosks, bubbling spicy fish stews and lots of cake for breakfast!
I believe that any holiday should incorporate some relaxation time and for me lying on a white, sandy beach with a good book and a fruit shake is the best way. I am lucky to have sampled many a great beach throughout my travels, but Brazil offers some of the most iconic and impressive in size. From Rio’s famous palm-lined Copacabana to the windswept shores of the Bahian coast. Thailand for me offers some of the most idyllic beaches I have visited, from small fishing coves to long expanses of white sand looking out over the turquoise water – paradise!
