Earliest Travel Memory: I used to holiday in Polzeath every year as a child. We’d stay in the same house year after year and our days would be filled with surfing, sandcastles, rock pooling and eating spam sandwiches with sandy hands.  

Travel Moment I Wish I Could Relive: I visited Iceland a few years ago and we stayed in a small little hotel on the north west coast. As soon as we drove out of the airport there was a realisation that you are somewhere very special - the stunning scenery is exhilarating and the beauty of it will stay with me forever. I would happily relive that moment, as despite having been lucky to visit some amazing places, nothing has come close to that feeling of being completely blown away by the beauty of my surroundings. 

Dream Holiday Destination: Pompeii has been on my list of places to visit for some time, so I would love to tick that one off soon.

Desert Island Dish: I find it very difficult not to choose spaghetti carbonara when I see it on a menu, so I would probably go for that.

Best Piece Of AdviceUse your smile to change the world but don’t let the world change your smile.

Alternative Career: Rory McIlroy’s caddie would have been quite nice.
