Since Jul 2007

35-49 year old female

London, United Kingdom

I have travelled very extensively, especially around Asia. I am living in England but have spent 13 years out in Hong Kong and 9 in Singapore. I have family in Canada, US and Thailand, so I do tend to visit North America quite a bit. I adore Thailand and been too many times to count. I am a little precious and cannot slum it on holiday. My choices are usually stylish boutique hotels, exclusive resorts, grand palace conversions, romantic hideaways... When it comes to food, I can be quite critical as I am a pretty good cook. I do prefer fancy upscale cuisine but I'd rather have something basic that is cooked well than something pretentious that is not up to standard. I am very adventurous with food. On a my recent trip to St Lucia, I tried pig-tail soup and Lucians watched me with dropped jaws. It was actually quite nice! Favourite places:New York, Vic Falls, Tokyo, Maroc, S.Africa, Kyoto, Venice, Bangkok, Zanzibar, Koh Samui, Namib Desert, Matera, Lecce, Rajasthan, Seychelles
