Life is in the detail

Spend 7 nights in the South of France taking in a total of 12 Michelin stars, the food is absolutely amazing and you'll be ready to pop by the end.

My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Road Trip across America
  • Galapagos Islands on a private charter
  • Visit Iran
  • The Mongol Derby, the toughest horse race in the world.

Best Moments

  • The Gibbon Experience in Laos, living in the tree tops in Laos was incredible.
  • Living in Zimbabwe for 4 months and doing a horse riding safari once a week on my day's off.

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Being ambushed by snake charmers in Marrakech - I really really hate snakes.
  • Breaking down in the middle of the night on a 12 hour journey in Vietnam (with the on board loo's being out of order), the whole journey ended up taking us 18 hours.

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Teaching weekly lessons in Zimbabwe on how to out run a Rhino and make it up a tree as quickly as possible...

24 Hours at Six Senses Douro Valley

24 jam (well port, really) packed hours in the Douro Valley; I touched down in Porto mid-morning and made my way through the stunning stepped hills of the Douro Valley and in just over an hour I had arrived at my home for the evening: the Six Senses Douro Valley.
