My parents took my brothers and I on a trip around the US, UK and Europe for 10 weeks while we were still at school. It was the most awesome, eye-opening experience.
And the worst?
I've been pretty lucky with my travel - I am yet to hate a holiday.
If we bump into you on holiday, what are you most likely to be doing?
Having fun and trying to immerse myself in the culture as much as possible. And a little shopping never hurt anyone.
What's your dream destination?
I would love to explore more of Europe, Italy in particular.
What's the dumbest thing you've ever done when travelling?
The family set out on a short getaway to Australia - until the lady checking us in at the airport very kindly let us know that all of our passports had expired, having written this down I am now going to check my current passport.
What will you always have in your hand luggage?
Baby wipes (thanks, mum)
Complete this sentence: I can't travel without ...
A valid passport and baby wipes, of course.
What's the best thing you've brought back from a trip?
In Paris with my mum, we went to the Louis Vuitton store on the Champs-Elysees and bought a handbag. I like to think of myself as a bit of a fashionista - so that was a dream.
Favourite airport to land at?
Heathrow - excellent shopping.
What's the next trip you've got planned?
I hope to go to the West Indies next year.
