Favourite Destination

Canada where I stayed in Banff at the foot of the Canadian Rockies, where the views around every corner are just breath-taking. We went for Christmas which was just magical and skiing on the powder white snow on the slopes of Sunshine village, and Mount Norquay was truly the best. Fantastic food and hospitality was second to none.

Most Memorable Destination 

Mainland Greece picture perfect Parga although it is on the mainland it gives you a feel of a Greek island, it has beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters Fantastic Greek food with an array of traditional taverns. We also visited the Meteora Monasteries perched on top of steep rock pillars one of the most amazing places in Greece.

Must-See Destination

I think it would have to be the Grand Canyon. I flew over in a helicopter, the first time I had done anything like this, especially as I’m not a confident flyer. With magnificent aerial views, it was breath-taking, the colours and the sheer vastness of the place.

Skiathos was another memorable holiday made famous by the film Mamma Mia this has to be my favourite Greek island a true paradise, beautiful beaches you will be spoiled for choice, exceptional cuisine and the locals are so friendly they cannot do enough for you.
