Wildlife & Nature
Snow or sun...which are you?
I would have to say sun, I've done a couple of skiing holidays but like most people enjoy getting some warm sun on my face.
Favourite mode of transport when travelling?
On a recently trip to Vietnam, I travelled on an overnight train from Hanoi to Hue and l loved it! We left the hustle and bustle of Hanoi in darkness and woke to rolling green countryside. The toilets left a little to be desired but apart from that it's the perfect way to travel!
Ever eaten something 'strange' on a trip?
I've eaten ants, silk worm and tarantula in Cambodia
Roughing it, camping phobe or somewhere in the middle?
Somewhere in the middle, i feel uncomfortable in 5 star but always enjoy a shower after a long day, especially in hot & humid climates. I always think with a limited budget, as long as you've got a clean & comfortable place to sleep then you're best spending more on exploring and enjoying the place you're visiting.
Favourite destination visited and why?
A really tough call, New Zealand was beautiful. Vietnam was my first experience of true Asia with Hoi An a real highlight but overall i think my favourite has to be Cambodia. The people were so warm and welcoming and Angkor Wat is a must for any traveller.
Your idea of the 'ultimate' destination?
I love the sense of exploring and experiencing new cultures, so my ultimate destination would have to be somewhere with a completely different culture to anything else i've experienced. Also somewhere you can get off the beaten track and feel less like a tourist.
