Favourite country visited
Switzerland - breathtaking panoramic views everywhere you go. It’s fascinating to be around such raw, untouched beauty. Switzerland has a warm and fun culture, with wildly beautiful scenery, thrilling activities,intriguing castles and the BEST chocolate in the world!

Favourite city visited
Paris was truly incredible, as the city of love/light and as a fashion capital. Paris has an amazing atmosphere, vibrant nightlife, beautiful historical monuments and colourful culture.

Favourite part of Contiki trip
I did a group tour around Santorini exploring Oia Village (known for its postcard photos of pure blue waters and perfectly painted white houses) which was truly incredible. But my favourite part of Santorini was riding a donkey down the mountain overlooking the caldera at sunset, watching the sun sink into the ocean and seeing all the beautiful colours spread throughout the sky.

Favourite photo from the trip
My favourite photo from this trip would have to be the one of me sitting on the ledge of a castle in Santorini overlooking the beautiful coastline. It makes me feel like I'm back in the Greek islands, relaxing in luxury!

Next Contiki trip
Somewhere in South America

Travelling on my own was quite a daunting experience at first. It gave me the opportunity to meet amazing people and new friends and experience cultures like no other. Contiki helped me to live a life with no regrets by building my confidence in living every day like it's your last!

    Really cool interview, travelling is something I have in the pipeline, though I'd like to be able to work while on the movie, since I write about repairing uninstall problems on my website, all I need to internet access, so I guess that's something I'll need to look into.
