Born and raised in the Turks & Caicos, I fell in love with travel while working at resorts there and watching as guests from different parts of the world would all fall under the holiday-mode spell of the Caribbean. After a few-year stint living and studying in Miami, I packed up my bags for London in 2013. Since relocating, I’ve found my travel-centric home at Mr & Mrs Smith and regularly used my city base as a launchpad to explore temptingly close European countries. I’m now slowly expanding my travel reach after returning from holidays to Asia and South Africa.

This bank-turned-hotel has retained elements of the building’s history, including little piggie bank tiles that line the corridors to the rooms and suites. The location – just down the street from the iconic Rijksmuseum and across from the Van Gogh museum – is perfect for art buffs.View Hotel
Being bogged down with luggage is no fun, so I arrange my luggage by whole outfits. I always curate my holiday wardrobe – picture lots of khakis and whites, linens and boots for a South African safari – I love a theme.
A London staycation has become one of my favourite ways to spend a weekend; an overnight stay at Henrietta Hotel puts you in the heart of Covent Garden, where you can enjoy a pre-theatre meal – I love Orso Italian Restaurant – before sauntering down the hill for a showing of The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre.View Hotels
This South Florida melting pot of a city has my heart as the ‘second home’ where I learned a lot about myself from being surrounded by people from a diverse range of cultures. The South Beach strip is a people watcher’s dream; you can sit at any of the many sidewalk bars and cafés and watch the entire world go by.View Hotels
