What do you love most about overland travel?
Not missing out on the little things that make journeys memorable. With no racing to airports you can take the time to learn about people and their cultures.

Which of the Vodkatrain destinations fascinates you most?
Rich in culture and with such diversity in landscapes Russia is high on my ‘to do’ list. With beautiful palaces, museums and mesmerising history, Moscow and St Petersburg will be the next for me to conquer.

Give us your best tip for travelling on Vodkatrain journeys.
Say yes, enjoy being offline, be open minded and try to cease every opportunity to do something out of your “comfort zone”.

What is your most memorable travel experience?
As a kid I was convinced I would always be an archaeologist or Lara Croft, so I was fascinated by the mummies and treasure at the Cairo Museum.

Which Vodkatrain journeys are on your wish list?
I have always dreamed of a white Christmas and dog sledding through the Siberian powder. For me the colder the better so the Ruski Huski would be amazing.

What is your favourite season to travel?
I love fury hats, a delicious hot chocolate and big coat, so winter is my favourite.

Where have you travelled in the world?
Russia, Mongolia, China, Finland, Vatican City, India, Nepal, Thailand, Japan, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia, Italy, Czech Republic, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates...
