I love traveling and did a lot of travelling in my 20s, including living in Guatemala for 3 years. I'd love to take Justin and our daughter Biba back there for a big trip. I'd also love to go to Panama for their reverse applique textiles, mexico for all their quirky 'Day of the Dead' crafts and Peru for the knitwear.
Travelling with Biba around her first birthday, Vietnam and Australia!
You're shipwrecked on a deserted island - what was the one possession you rescued before the boat sank?
This is a tricky one (don't want to say smart phone - although it would be very sensible as I could call for rescue!) but I would try and save my sketch books
Camping or Glamping (no van allowed!
Love them both (not that I've glamped much!) but I think old fashioned camping would have the edge. Preferably on Troytown campsite on the Isle of Scilly, preferably with close friends and family, a glass of wine and a sunset over the sea...
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck - because it is epic!
First ever 'proper' job?
Working as an Art Technician at the Winchester College in Hampshire - the oldest school in England and posher than Eton - Prince William used to come and play water polo there!
Name the top two things on your bucket list.
Living in New York (though Justin did not rate my idea of a family sabbatical there!)
Going travelling with Biba....I have a hunch she'll enjoy a chicken bus.....
