What comes to your mind when one says ‘first travel memory’?

I remember the first time I was allowed to travel alone. It was the most liberating experience. I was 11-years-old and my mom—after I begged her for months—allowed me to travel to Paris alone to meet my cousin. I stayed with her for a month and got to see all the amazing places in the city. It was the first time I was away from my family for so long. The experience of travelling on the flight alone and reaching France gave me a sense of independence and a rush of excitement.

What kind of traveller are you?

I’m a posh traveller. I love expensive places, restaurants, good food, amazing shopping, basking in the sun, spending time in really nice hotels and visiting as many beaches as possible.

Your all-time favourite destination?

I have a few all-time favourite destinations: Morocco, Dubai, Miami and the Dominican Republic. I am sure there are many more places I need to visit first so I can add them to my list of favourite destinations.

A destination on your bucket list?

Maldives, Egypt, Tunisia, Aruba, Jamaica and Ibiza. 

Three things you never travel without?

My swimwear, my make-up and my tracksuits.

What is your idea of a perfect holiday?

My idea of a perfect holiday is the beach or the pool, sun-bathing, listening to music with my friends and being close to the mall so I can shop in the evening.

Your favourite travel companion? 

My friend Marcelo is my favourite travel companion.

How do you like to spend your day when you are not shooting?

When I am not shooting, I love to spend time at home or with my friends. If it is an outdoor shoot schedule and I have an off day, I’ll take Marcelo and run to the beach.

Once restrictions are lifted, what is the first place you want to visit?

I want to go to the Maldives as soon as possible!

Three things that have kept you grounded during this lockdown?

I’ve always been grounded, but the three things that have kept me sane are cooking or cleaning, FaceTiming with family and friends, and planning my future projects at home.

What do you miss the most about travelling?

I miss absolutely everything about it and I can’t wait to go back because travelling has become an integral part of my career and lifestyle in the last couple of years.
