Prince William Sound, Alaska

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Explore the Prince William Sound in Alaska
  • Visit Zakouma National Park in Chad
  • Taste my way around Italy!
Wahiba Sands

Best Moments

  • Listening to Out of Africa whilst flying low in a cessna over Laikipia in Kenya with Mt Kenya in the background, golden plains beneath and the sun beginning to set. Cheesy I know but I loved it!
  • 4x4'ing through the endless Wahiba Sands in Oman with seemingly no-one around. Our beautiful lantern lit camp appeared and we had the best dinner under the stars followed by dancing around the fire.
  • Sundowners on safari is an essential part of the experience as you slow down, sit and listen to the day quietening before the nocturnal wildlife comes to life. It's hard to say which was my best one, but being by the Luangwa River in Zambia which is full of hippos and usually with a herd of elephants nearby is always a winner.

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Arriving into Tangier by boat as a student on the first day of an eight week adventure around Morocco. The culture shock was huge and we had to get travel savvy pretty quickly!
Spiders web in the Republic of Congo

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • This isn't a weird moment as such, more that what we were looking at was weird! Walking through the Odzala Kokoua National Park in the Republic of Congo we spotted everything from lichen imitating caterpillars to crab looking spiders and flower imitating mantis. What's even more amazing is so many of these species are still being named!
