I love to travel and experience new cultures. My favourite country is South Africa and I have visited many times. But I also like to travel in the UK, Europe, South East Asia and Australia.
I prefer boutique style hotels or in South Africa highly rated guest houses. I don't like big impersonal chains, with the exception of Mandarin Oriental hotels, much prefering to stay in smaller hotels. You really get to know the owners and some even end up as friends! My other love on holiday is good food and wine. I love natural scenery - sea, beaches, mountains, bush, flowers, wildlife but I also like to include some city sightseeing, as I do like shopping!
