Number one unforgettable travel experience?

I think this has to be seeing two prides of lions on Safari in Kenya. I was sitting on the edge of a Land Rover on the last day of the trip, when a male lion walked about a meter from me around the car. A few moments later he was joined by another male lion, two females and around six cubs. Having not seen lions ever before, this was definitely one of the most surreal moments I have ever had. Just one highlight of many during an unsupported road trip taken with a group of friends.   


Top of your travel bucket list?

Iceland, Jamaica and Italy. Although a random combination, these have been on my bucket list for some time!


Who is your ultimate travel partner?

This has to be my closest friend Tara. We have known each other for seven years now, living together throughout university and for three years most recently in London. She is probably the only person I can spend a prolonged period of time with so would definitely be my one and only travel partner!
