My Most Treasured Passport Stamp

Las Vegas as that’s where I got married.

    

My Favourite Hotel

Apple Farm, San Luis Obispo in California.

    

My Most Memorable Meal on Holiday

For ambience, views and fine dining - Barracuda in St Julian’s, Malta. We spent my 30th birthday there. Or, for the pure quirkiness of it, The Stinking Rose in San Francisco, I had garlic and rosemary crusted baby ribs with garlic mash and a side of garlic cloves, with garlic ice cream. My tummy was not impressed!

    

Favourite Holiday Tipple

Depends on my mood! A spicy mojito is always a winner though!

    

I Never Travel Without

A good book, make up and my passport!

    

Top of My Bucket List

It changes all the time! My current top of the list would be to go and have tea with a Geisha in Japan.

Fresh lobster on a table set on the beach on Peter Island in the British Virgin Islands had the wow factor but a simple Thai red curry sat on the roadside in Phuket, Thailand was the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten.
