MOST MEM­O­RABLE HOL­I­DAY

When I got en­gaged in the Mal­dives. It was the best ex­pe­ri­ence ever. I was 24 and I’d never seen a place that was so beau­ti­ful, it was just par­adise.

We didn’t have any chil­dren at the time so money was no ob­ject! We went snorkelling and sail­ing to see blue whales. I’d never seen sea so blue or the light so bright.

I used to get up in the morn­ing and let one neg­a­tive thing get to me and then it would snow­ball the rest of the day. I read it and it re­ally changed my whole out­look and my life be­gan to change.

HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR TIME ON HOL­I­DAY?

I like to drink cock­tails, favourites are daiquiris but mo­ji­tos are so re­fresh­ing. I like to sun­bathe, I love snorkelling and sea fish­ing. I’m a
