In the office at the CAC!


Where’s the last stamp in your passport from? Or where was your last staycation to?

My last stamp is from Malaysia where I spent new year’s eve and two lovely weeks in the beginning of the year, luckily just before this nightmare started.

Were you planning to travel this year, if so, where to?

Yes, we were thinking of escaping the European winter again, this time going back to Oman as we absolutely loved it there 2 years ago. Other than that I had planned lots of short trips within Europe, to Spain and Portugal amongst others.

Once this is all over – name three (or more) places on your bucket list you plan to visit.

A dream destination for many years has been the kingdom of Bhutan so let’s see when this dream will become reality as it is a pricey dream (check out their visa policy). More realistic bucket list destinations would be Taiwan, Australia, Hawaii, the Philippines and many more.


What is the biggest lesson travelling or your life travels so far have taught you, that you’d share with me?

Always trust your gut feeling!

Do you have any travel tips to share?

Lol, definitely always pack all necessities and a bunch of spare clothes in your carry on – saved my butt a few times when luggage went missing.

We’ve got a lot time on our hands now. What books, podcasts, or TV series’ / films would you recommend I check out?

Definitely Cheer on Netflix as I’m a proud retired cheerleader 😀

How are you spending your extra free time?

Trying to enjoy the sunshine and get as much exercise as possible.
