What is your favourite travel childhood memory?
Going on school trips, the singing on the buses.
What is your favourite holiday destination?
I wouldn’t say I’m well travelled yet, but so far I would say Mauritius was by far the best holiday, it was so relaxing.
What is the best way to sleep on a plane?
I haven’t done a long distance flights in a while, tips are more than welcome.
What is your top travel tip?
Do research on the place that you are visiting, and have a plan for each day on what you will doing.
What travel gadgets are you taking with you on this tour?
Not really a gadget person, my phone will do
What are you looking forward to the most on this trip?
Getting a second chance to re-do Washington both San Francisco. I previously went to Washington for a few days but I didn’t get to see much of it. I crashed out when I got there. I spent most of the first day there sleeping, was too tired to do anything. Looking forward to exploring Silicon Valley, and of course doing a bit of shopping.
Tell us something fun about yourself that most people don’t know?
I think I’m an old-soul, I’m absolutely terrible with Social media, I don’t even have an Instagram account.
What is the one thing that you cannot travel without?
Have you ever gotten lost while travelling?
Don’t recall ever getting lost, but I once forgot where I had parked a rental car while in the US, took me more than an hour to find the car.
What other destinations are on your bucket list?
I would love to tour Europe and other African countries.
How will u be putting the SA in the USA?
I’ll be rocking my Xibelana (Tsonga Traditional skirt), just kidding, the skirt alone will probably take up the entire baggage limit. I won’t have space for other clothes.
