More about Nadine…
- In my carry-on bag I always have a book, my headphones, snacks (Skittles and Jelly Tots), and something I can’t live without – my nail polish. Even after a long flight, with a quick touch-up I immediately feel more put together.
- I never leave home without my favourite pillow, so I’m guaranteed a good night’s sleep wherever I am.
- The best souvenir I ever brought home was a bangle that I bought from Argos in the UK in 2017 – I haven’t taken it off since. It’s a special memento from the first trip I ever took abroad by myself.
- My favourite thing to do in a new destination is trying the local dishes and cocktails, and visiting historical sights to get a sense of the place.
- Before I go to a new place, I learn about the culture and customs there to ensure I show the proper respect, and where the nearest markets and other hotspots are around town.
- The question I’m most often asked is: “Do you enjoy your job?” Absolutely. Every day offers something different in the hospitality industry.
- My best piece of travel advice is Your money will return, but your time will not.
- I got my love of travel from my parents – they are frequent travellers and continue to inspire me with all their stories of wonderful, curious, and exotic places.
- In my suitcase you’d be surprised to find an obsessive amount of sneakers and something sweet to nibble on – noshing from the minibar can run up a hefty bill.
- One moment from my travels I will never forget is seeing three cheetahs released into MORE’s Marataba South Africa concession in the Marakele National Park on 2 September 2017.
