WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO TRAVEL TO THE MALDIVES?

I was in Maldives for work, shooting for a resort group, and my husband came along with me- it was so much fun to work together portraying a couple on their honeymoon - I mean talk about a dream job!

ANY TRAVEL HACKS? JET LAG REMEDIES?

I love to hit the gym as soon as I arrive to a hotel but also I just tried the app called Timeshifter that helps you adjust to big time changes and it was really cool!

Forgetting my passport on the plane on an island in the Philippines, and the crazy adventure to find it again before flying out of a different airport.

ARE YOU SUPER ORGANISED OR A MORE SPONTANEOUS TRAVELLER?
