Since a young age I have been lucky enough to travel with family to all kinds of places which I guess is where my love for experiencing different cultures and destinations around the world started. My visit to St Lucia for a holiday at the age of 14 still only seems like yesterday and is definitely the main reason I love travelling to the Caribbean.

My travel advice

  • Buy your insurance when you book the holiday, not just before you travel.
  • Pack light, manage your own luggage, don’t let luggage distract you from enjoying yourself.
  • Before you go, halve your clothes and double your money.
  • Make a resolution when you travel, note it and try to stick to it at home.
