These are not the sexiest shoes on the planet but I took a pair to the Galapagos and they were brilliant. If you are jumping off tenders to get ashore, they dry quickly and are as comfy as a pair of trainers to walk in... okay, I get it, but just suck the beauty element up! Buy >
Tilley hats are my favourite for travel and they last forever. My favourite are the Airflo collection. They protect you from the sun, are cool and have a tie cord, are water repellant and even float. Oh and did I tell you that they look pretty good too? Buy >
Orvis have some great travel gear and the Pack & Go Dress is moisture-wicking, UPF 50 and made using eco-friendly recycled polyester. It is soft, resists wrinkles and you can pull it out of a suitcase and wear it with a nice pair of sandals. Buy >
EAGLE CREEK CUBES
These packing cubes will change your life if you travel often and to multi destinations. You can have one for T-shirts and underwear, shoes in shoe bags, one for folded shirts, one for all your accessories, one for your trousers...makes finding things and packing a lot easier and a tidy suitcase. Trust me! Buy >
Osprey make a range of great back packs for hiking. Choose one with a hydration pouch like the Skimmer 16 which has a 2.5 litre reservoir. I try to avoid plastic bottles so this is ideal for hiking and it is large enough to hold a rain jacket, hat, gloves, camera and yummy snacks. Buy >
DOPPER REUSABLE BOTTLES
I bought my Dopper in Amsterdam and love the design. The insulated one maintains the temperature of the liquid for hours and has its own integrated cup. The big ones hold 800ml/28fl oz and you can personalise them making it a perfect gift as well. Buy >
MODERN BOTANY - MULTI-TASKING OIL
A beautiful oil to rehydrate skin (and hair), it penetrates deep into the skin and fights off free radicals at the cellular level without blocking pores. Perfect for sensitive skin. Cruelty free and suitable for vegans. What more could you want... Buy >
EMMA HARDIE - MORINGA CLEANSING BALM
A gorgeous, soft cleanser that comes with a two sided cloth. Nothing feels better than this heavenly balm. Buy a big pot and decant it into a smaller one for travel. A little goes a long way and it smells sooooo good. Buy >
RAW ELEMENTS - ECO SUNSCREEN
30+SPF, biodegradable, reef safe, does not sting your eyes (hate that), safe for children, water resistant, soy, gluten and nut free. And they make a tinted moisturiser for the face with an SPF 30+. Buy >
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.
