The most beautiful place I’ve ever been is?Queluz Palace in Lisbon. I visited it one Winter afternoon. The place was completely empty, enveloped in a heavy mist ?it looked like something straight from a dream.

First thing I pack for any trip is‘my camera gear. I make sure the day before leaving that my battery packs are charged and SD cards formatted.

Top tips for: Keeping flight anxiety under control.

I’m a terrible flyer – any weird noise keeps me on the edge of my seat – but over?the years I’ve gathered a few tips that make plane trips a little more bearable…

1. Listen to a podcast you usually fall asleep to: Not only do they block the surrounding noises but because you associate them with the feeling of falling asleep in’the safety of your bed.?For me, it is Judge John Hodgman.?I find his voice soothing and he makes me chuckle, which has the added bonus of making the flight experience a lot less dramatic.

2. Bring a book you stopped reading right at a cliffhanger: Chances are you’ll be so engrossed in your reading experience that the journey will fly.

3. Go for regular airlines over low-cost when you can:?This might be controversial but I find that the low-cost experience can be stressful at times. It’s easier to deal with your fear if your stress levels are kept to a minimum.
