She has travelled extensively throughout Europe and North America, seeking out high-end food, wine and hotel experiences. She often visits her family in the Canary Islands but has yet to find a tastier tomato than the ones she bought at the St Chinian farmers market in the Languedoc.
Fun fact: This photo was taken at Vasquez Rocks in the Sierra Pelona Mountains, in northern California. Famously, it's where Captain Kirk fought the Gorn in a 1966 classic episode of Star Trek!
