It is so hard to choose one country above all others, each place has something special about it. I've recently been back to Japan, 12 years since my first visit so right now that's my favorite country!
WHAT PLACE IS TOP OF YOUR BUCKET LIST?
Bhutan was top of the list for such a long time, but now that I've been there I guess I'd choose Iran, or Italy or Greece - ancient cultures are my inspiration.
WHAT CAN'T YOU TRAVEL WITHOUT?
I never leave home without earplugs and eye mask, and a tub of Trilogy Everything Balm - it's good for everything! But what I really can't travel without is my iPhone and a local SIM. You don't need a guidebook when you have the whole of the internet in the palm of your hand wink emoticon.
DO YOU PREFER SOLO TRAVEL OR WITH SOMEONE ELSE?
I travel alone most of the time which has it's pros and it's cons. The most special memories are of places I've visited with someone special.
WHO IS THE PERSON AT HOME THAT YOU MISS THE MOST?
Facetime has changed everything - I never feel that far away from the people I care about as long as I can make a video call, and Facebook makes me feel close to those who are faraway. The people I miss the most are the ones who aren't online.
