The world according to Rhoda1

Mountain/Desert/Ocean/Jungle... which one are you?
Ocean - in it rather than on it

What was your first great travel experience?
A six-month trip to the UK when I was 5 - it didn't make much of an impression! Much later, Morocco - it was just so jaw droppingly different. I couldn't stop talking about it - and I'm not a talkative person!

What has been your favourite journey?
It's always the last 10 minutes of the flight to Bermuda - coming in to land and seeing the islands spread out on a sparkling ocean. Magical

What are your Top 5 places worldwide?
Burma, Galapagos, Maldives, Sossusvlei, Masai Mara

Recommend a special place to stay
Norfolk Hotel, Nairobi

Which three items do you always pack?
camera, notebook, sense of adventure

Which passport stamp are you proudest of?
Galapagos National Park

Which passport stamp would you most like to have?
Papua New Guinea

Where or what is your guilty travel pleasure?
Nothing that I'm admitting to

Window or aisle?
Window every time!
