The next few days are going to be busy for me. I’m going to be talking at World Travel Market in the WTM & Travel Perspective session about working with brands in a digital world, all about my experience of working on the Sainsbury’s advert, and also about the Samsung ‘People of Note’ campaign.
But before that, this Sunday I’m going to be taking part in the National Geographic Traveller ‘No Fly Zone’ panel discussion at the Family Travel Show, which takes place this weekend at Olympia. We’ll be discussing everything to do with travelling abroad whilst avoiding flying. There’ll be all sorts of suggestions and helpful tips about the advantages and opportunities that travelling without flying can bring: where you can go, what you can do, who to book with, and much more. I’ll be chatting about my favourite no-fly destinations and giving advice about everything from Greek island hopping and transatlantic cruise crossings to Disney Cruise Line’s new Iceland and Norway cruises from Dover in 2016.
Next up, I’m teaming up with Charlotte Mendoza from Carnival to chat ‘new to cruise’. If you’re coming along, you’ll hear us give you loads of information about cruising for the first time, as well as addressing loads of questions that new cruisers often have, everything from ‘how do I pay for stuff on board’ to ‘will I have to tip?’ and even ‘will I be seasick?’!
