It was perhaps the time spent looking through maps for her geography degree that truly sparked Alice’s passion for travel. Indeed, soon after graduating she found work in America before setting off on a coast-to-coast adventure from New York to San Francisco. She’s hiked through Zion National Park, camped with the Navajo peoples of Monument Valley and marvelled at Santa Fe’s Spanish architecture and creative scene. But, Alice also has extensive experience in organising luxury holidays in Europe. Ask about her favourite rail journeys in Norway or her tips for staying in Sweden’s ICEHOTEL. However, for her, it’s the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express that’s truly special – the ultra-luxury train that links London and Italy’s floating city. Of course, she’ll also be able to point you towards her favourite restaurants and palazzo hotels in Venice.

Favourite moment

Spotting alligators in Honey Island – one of the wildest swamps in Louisiana

Top recommendations

The ICEHOTEL is a personal favourite, but be sure to spend some extra time in a warm room so you can head out husky sledding and search for the Northern Lights
