Number one unforgettable travel experience?

Cruising on Lamima in Raja Ampat, the expertise of the crew is unsurpassable and the biodiversity of the marine life is so incredibly rich; every dive was extraordinary. On one particular dive around Misool, I was privileged to see pygmy seahorses which are as rare as they are tiny as they usually grow to around only 2cm and are extremely well camouflaged.

Top of your travel bucket list?

By yacht, the Galapagos Archipelago would be fascinating for the outstanding wildlife and exclusivity of the destination. Land-based, I would love to run the Great China Wall marathon before discovering more about the Giant Panda conservation in Dujiangyan.

Who is your ultimate travel partner?

Bear Grylls: A world recognised adventurer with survival skills which could come in handy in the more extreme destinations I would like to travel to…and anyone that rows down the Thames in a bathtub naked sounds like a fun guy!
