Olympic rower Helen Glover checks into our travel Q&A

This week Olympic rower Helen Glover checks into our travel Q&A.

She talks about her most memorable night out abroad, her favourite hotel, her bucket list destination – and more.   

Favourite country?

Great Britain. I just love the variety — from coastlines and woodlands to moors and rivers, there’s something for everyone. If I were forced to choose somewhere abroad it would probably be Australia. I adore the outdoor lifestyle there.

Favourite hotel?

The Karma Hotel on St Martin’s on the Isles of Scilly. The staff are so friendly.

Most memorable view you treasure?

The first trip my husband (Steve Backshall) and I did together. It was to Morzine in France. We hiked up a mountain first thing in the morning, and the clouds were below us, with these fantastic blue skies above. We could see the peaks of other mountains popping out of the clouds, and there was nobody else in sight.

What do you never travel without?

My Patagonia coat. It’s light enough to carry, but doubles up as the perfect pillow.

Earliest holiday memory?

With my family, camping in France. I remember my first taste of freedom, cycling around and exploring.

Worst place you’ve spent the night?

Helen is supporting Cotswold Outdoor’s Sound On campaign, encouraging people to spend more time in nature and enjoy the sounds of the outdoors (cotswoldoutdoor.com/soundon). Want to know more on click here go to tour news source.
