You know those smarty-pants travel buddies who know everything? Well, they've been applauded in my latest Australian Traveller mag column . . .

And you thought you knew about travel? In the latest issue of Australian Traveller mag (Feb-March issue) I’ve revealed the skills of my favourite travel buddies in my regular Travelling In Style column...

Wanna exclusive peek into life living on a ship? Well, The World is the place to do it . .

The World’s ‘star’ kaftan queen, Camilla Franks (below) and me: well, there was a bar in front of us, so we were pretending to mix drinks but renowned photographer Partrick Dermarchelier, we are not.

You learn very quickly not to say the word ‘cabin’ on The world’s first residential ship whose inhabitants live on it, as opposed to check-in onto it.
