Q: Where do you love to go to get away from it all & why?

Jackson, Wyoming in the middle of the winter.The town is tiny, charming, and quieter, even with a multitude of skiers, than it is in the summer. And if you aren’t skiing—which I’m not—you won’t be subject to crowds at all, just gorgeous views.

The Grand Tetons are some of the most breathtaking mountains in the world, and a snowy tour through Yellowstone National Park is magical.

Q: Where is your favourite romantic city break destination?

Venice. It’s the only city in world where you can feel so wholly transported to another time.

Q: Name one thing still on your bucket list

I am desperate to see the Taj Mahal in India.
