My Expert Areas

Top Tip

Always try to go to the local restaurants wherever you visit, some of the smallest places, offer the best of the local cuisine that you won’t find anywhere else. Spending some time swimming in the ocean, floating while feeling the sun on your face is the true definition of a holiday well spent.

Q & A

1. What was your most memorable holiday meal?

Sharing meals in Crete at the Blue Palace hotel. The restaurant is next to the ocean, and feeling the sunshine on my face, while enjoying the immaculately crafted Burrata salad with the freshest ingredients was truly magical.

2. What is the best thing about being abroad?

The food, experiencing new cultures, and finding hidden gems. 

3. Where would you go next and why?

I would love to go to the Canary Islands and have a chance to get to know the different areas and what makes them unique.

My favourites

Aerial view of Mauritius island panorama and famous  Le Morne Brabant mountain, beautiful blue lagoon and underwater waterfall
Luxury Mauritius Holidays
Mauritius is one of my favourite countries. I remember spending the day on a catamaran, watching the islands roll by with the sea breeze in my hair. Hopping into the water with a snorkel and exploring the wonderful underwater worlds. Come lunch, local cuisine and cocktails were served to the sounds of laid-back island music, overall a fantastic holiday!
Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection, Crete
Domes of Elounda has absolutely beautifully designed interiors. The staff were very attentive and nothing was ever too much trouble. The location of the hotel is close to the village of Plaka, so you can reach everything easily. The food was amazing and the knowledge of the sommelier was very impressive.
