I'm always happiest when I'm by the sea, or on it. I'm a year round paddle boarder and love to venture out to new top spots, ideally with a waterside pub along the way. I'd love to go back to Japan and Finland one day, but definitely have a soft spot for Italy and Mexico – mainly because of the food! One of my best trips involved cycling the length of Vietnam, but scuba diving in Papua New Guinea was pretty memorable too. I grew up in the Midlands but now live on the sunny south coast of England with my partner and our wonderful son, Reggie.
