Having wider Europe on the doorstep makes Britain a great base. All corners of the continent ooze culture and history and, although everyone has their own favourite destination, there’s always somewhere new to explore. I’ve worked seasonally in France, Portugal and Switzerland, and still have so much still to discover.
Talking PointsWhat's your favourite destination?
Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy
