I have worked for Sovereign for five years and have vast travel industry experience as I also previously worked in business travel and as a retail travel agent. I have a huge passion for travel and have travelled to many destinations with Sovereign such as Dubai, Madeira and most recently Mauritius. I enjoy sharing my travel experience with my seven-year-old son by taking him away as much as possible. A favourite place for us both is Portugal as it has so much for holiday makers of all ages to enjoy from long stretches of relaxing sandy beaches to some Europe's biggest water parks.

Most memorable travel experience
I have recently been lucky enough to spend four nights on a Regent Seven Seas cruise in Europe. It was truly a five-star hotel on the sea. I enjoyed fantastic meals, fine wine, luxurious suites, amazing customer service and shore excursions at every stop. I am so glad I tried cruising – I’m sure it won’t be my last time!
My favourite destination has to be Mauritius – what an amazing island. The people are some of the friendliest I’ve met, and the beaches have those perfect white sands. The cuisine is pretty good, too, and I really enjoyed having the option to relax, as well as try different activities such as quad biking in the forest and snorkelling around coral reefs.
Favourite Sovereign hotel
I love the Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort and Spa, in Crete. The hotel offers such an amazing view over to Spinalonga from every room, restaurant, pool and bar. It’s just a short walk into the traditional town of Plaka, where you can enjoy a meal out (try the local fish) or simply relax and have a drink.
Top travel tip
If you enjoy a meal out like me, I tend to check the top 10 restaurants in the local area before I go, and book a couple in advance. It avoids any disappointment, or just takes some of the planning out while on holiday.
Favourite hidden gem
If you are staying at the Eagles Palace in Halkidiki, make sure you spend one afternoon watching the stunning sunset from the Kamares terrace. They can tailor-make cocktails to your taste, too.
I would love to go on safari with my family to South Africa.
