I first caught the travel bug when my parents took me on childhood trips to visit our family in India. The unfamiliar sights, smells and sounds of this incredible country captured my imagination, and instilled in me a life-long quest for knowledge and adventure. My passion for travelling has taken me to 50 countries across five continents. I've walked with lions, swam with great whites and eyeballed a silverback gorilla in Africa; screamed with terror on a tandem sky-dive in New Zealand; trekked through jaw-dropping mountain scenery from the Andes to the Himalayas and partied hard with locals from Havana to Shanghai. I'm immensely excited about my next trip - my honeymoon to Borneo where I plan to show my less adventurous new husband the delights of orangutans, diving and hiking in rainforests!
