It is hard to choose a favourite assignment. Exploring the wilds of Alaskan fjords by small cruise ship with National Geographic was a remarkable adventure, but I am equally blown away by the talents of designers such as Peiro Lissoni transforming the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam and Kit Kemp's riot of colour and texture in Firmdale's collection of boutique hotels. And then there are the stunning beach resorts of Bali, Mexico and the Maldives... This is my blog and archive of articles on hotel design, spas and wellbeing, city hotspots and food and wine destinations, for publications such as The Times and The Sunday Times, the Telegraph, Financial Times, CityAM newspaper and Country & Town House magazine. One of the greatest pleasures in hospitality is meeting warm, hospitable people - and experiences are all the richer shared.
