A bit about me

What’s the best place you’ve visited and why?

Going to see Andrea Bocelli perform in his hometown of Lajatica, Tuscany at the gorgeous Teatro del Silenzio amphitheater has to be one of my most recent travel highlights.

Do you have any hobbies and what are they?

I’m a bit of a countryside/outdoorsy person so long country walks, clay pigeon shooting (new hobby) and discovering new country retreats are right up my street.

What’s your claim to fame?

My husband is a hotelier and we lived in Barbados for a year. As there was not much for an expat wife to do I took up golf and played with my husband once a week. I was absolutely awful and never quite made it around a full 18 holes but one day on a par 3 I connected with the ball, it never got more than 3ft off the ground, bounced off the side of a bunker and straight into the hole. So my claim to fame is that I have achieved a hole-in-one on the golf course, something my husband is yet to do after years of playing golf!
