I travel so often that I have now fine-tuned my packing for all kinds of trips, from work conferences to weekend city breaks, hot beach holidays and skiing adventures. My advice on which luggage to choose and how to pack for every occasion comes from years of experience and basically over packing and getting it wrong.
I also have the art of speeding past airport queues down to a well-oiled routine, with insider-intel on fast-track services and what to keep in your hand-luggage that won’t slow you down at security.

When booking your holiday, we want you and your family to be happy with every aspect of the Secure Travel process from start to finish. In the first instance, we are able to recommend hotels and private villas, yachts and ski chalets that are extremely private but we go a step further.
My super stylish interior designer friend, Samantha Todhunter introduced me to Eastpak bags a few years back. As we trundled through the airport, she and her two children had Eastpak luggage rolling gently along behind them. The fact that Sam is the ultimate Queen of Style anyway made me think this warranted further investigation.
Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
