and answers?
Best holiday/holiday recommendation?
Kenya – we spent our honeymoon there and it is a feast for the senses and the soul. A beautiful country, with wonderfully warm people, fabulous food and the most incredible sights. Make sure you do a traditional ‘sundowner’ – sunsets like you’ve never seen and firelight under a blanket of stars...

I love Mary Poppins. It’s my Christmas indulgence. I have nothing more to say about that and I can’t really justify why I love it so much – I just do. I live in hope that someday I will find chimneysweeps dancing across the London rooftops and get the chance to join in...
Desert Island Item?

Marmite. Can’t be without it. I took a huge jar in my backpack when I went travelling and I had instant popularity whenever I brought it out at the breakfast table!
