My partner and I live by the sea with our two children but maintain work connections in London. I love cities like New York, Berlin, Barcelona, Stockholm and Copenhagen, but, since having children we do a lot of camping, in Wales and Sussex. My partner snowboards in France and as a family, we holiday in Crete, Italy and Spain. One of my most memorable trips was travelling in Cuba, staying in homes of locals, travelling from town to town. That's my kind of travel.
