I'm a magazine journalist, originally from Yorkshire, now living in London. I'm not a particularly organized (it's a struggle to leave the house on time each morning with handbag/keys and travel card in hand) but when it comes to planning holidays I turn into a list obsessed geek, spending hours planning flights/accommodation. I love it! I also love the unpredictability of traveling. On a recent trip to Morocco we found out we couldn't get on a bus out of Marrakech for three days. We ended up squished into the back of a tiny taxi with an entire Moroccan family as they yelled French at us for five hours. Uncomfortable and slightly scary but unforgettable.
Favourite places Bangkok and Ko Samet, Thailand/ Marrakech, Morocco / Nerja, Spain/The Lake District, UK/ London - my home and the best city in the world!
