30 Second Interview:
Best place you’ve ever visited: Lake Challuacocha in the Ecuadorian Amazon in 2010. Fishing for piranhas, watching river dolphins, jungle trekking and goading my husband into swimming in the lake and the next day spotting a ten-foot cayman. It was my first trip to Latin America and definitely won’t be my last.
Wine or beer? Cocktails.
What’s the longest you’ve gone without a shower? Glastonbury 2005, the first music festival I ever went to and at times I swore it would be the last. It rained almost constantly, our tent flooded, we ran out of money and I was suffering from morning sickness.
Describe your worst ever journey: From Sapa, in the north of Vietnam back to Hanoi with my husband and daughters in 2008. There was a land slide and we got stuck on the train for four days in the middle of nowhere. It was half fun (we got to play on the train tracks which the children thought was fantastic) and half awful (we ran out of food on day two and nappies on day three).
What’s your favourite book? Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell, although I will never forget staying up all night to finish it and then realising that Elizabeth Gaskell very sadly died before writing the final chapter.
