Q & A With Anita
Where have you travelled to in the last 12 months?
All my travels have been fairly local of late… Cornwall, Isle of Wight, Bath, Bristol as well as Rhodes and the little village of Sale San Giovanni in the Italian mountains.
Where are you planning to travel in the next 12 months?
Since having a child, I’ve realised travelling takes A LOT more organisation so I’m not planning on venturing too far this year - Majorca, Tuscany, Guernsey and Devon.
What is your first travel-related memory?
Getting travel sick on a ferry when I was about 5 or 6. All I had to hand were my shoes (which I’d taken off) and they were the first thing I reached for when the sickness struck… Needless to say, mum wasn’t best pleased.
Aisle or window seat?
Window seat all the way – I’m not keen on flying so I like to be able to see the ground.
Do you have any travel habits or rituals?
Does checking I have my passport at least a hundred times before I leave the house count?
What are you most likely to splurge on while travelling?
Food – the way to a women’s heart is through her belly!
What’s your favourite thing about working at NWS?
How passionate everyone here is about their jobs. It makes it a lovely place to work when everyone’s enjoying what they’re doing.
What do you like doing outside of NWS?
I LOVE snowboarding (and après ski) and getting outdoors as much as possible.
If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be?
Is there a standout destination in your mind?
I’d love to travel anywhere in the Polar Regions, or I’d happily go back to Japan.
What is your best travel souvenir?
I don’t really buy souvenirs and if I do, they’ve usually been eaten within a week of getting home...
What is the best travel advice you have received?
Wear your snowboard boots on the plane to save weight allowance!
What is your spirit animal?
Probably a cat – I like sleeping and lolling about.
What is your favourite thing about working/living in Brighton?
There’s so much to do! There’s always something going on at the weekends and if there isn’t, you can always just pop to the beach.
