Canada. My first solo trip.
If we bump into you on holiday, what are you most likely to be doing?
Checking out the local arts scene and secret, non-touristy, culinary hideouts.
If we could teleport you to one place in New Zealand for a week-long holiday, where would it be?
How about for a dream holiday internationally?
Too many on the list. I've been pretty much everywhere except the States. There are so many places in the States I want to go to. My top three: San Francisco, New York, New Orleans.
Aisle seat or window seat?
What's the dumbest thing you've ever done when travelling?

What's the best travel tip you've ever been given?
It had to be Mum. But make photocopies of important documents.

In Kandy, atop a hill station in Sri Lanka. Appam (crispy rice flour pancake) and seeni sambol (caramelised spicy onion sambol) and coconut roti.
