I’ve worked at Travel Nation since August 2014 but I was an intern here for a year before during my holidays. I grew up in rural Shropshire and moved south for university before discovering Travel Nation in sunny Brighton. I spend my time reading, cooking and thinking up new travel plans for the future!

Milly has visited:
Reading or walking on the beach in the winter. Nothing better than fish and chips with a 99 on the beach, especially in winter when the tourists have all gone home!
Travelling in South America.
Western Australia - just wow. So many people ignore the west and only visit the east coast but they are missing out. Perfect beaches, tons of wildlife and fantastic weather - I could easily go back and the exact same trip all over again!
Live from my rucksack but it always ends up being living from all over the floor – I’m extremely messy.
Vancouver Island - lots of green outdoorsy life, beautiful beaches and delicious food!
I went to Nepal when I was 17 to visit family friends, the first time I’d been further than France. It was an amazing experience and introduced me to a world outside the UK – I’ve been trying to discover more and more of it since.
Hmm, I think Western Australia, Canada and Shropshire, where I grew up.
I've been to so many beautiful hotels, it's hard to choose. So I'll give you 5!
For me, a hotel needs a great view so I'd say the Mountain Heavens Hotel in Ella, Sri Lanka or Middle Beach Lodge in Tofino, Canada. I also love a good pool, LOI Suites in Iguazu, Argentina was heavenly, as well as Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji. For overall experience, Kulala Desert Lodge in Namibia - I slept under the stars on the roof of my room, under the milky way and listening to lions roar in the night. Magical.
China. I waited in line in Bangkok for hours and hours to get my Chinese Visa so actually getting past the guards at the border felt like a victory! Or the Galapagos Islands, I still pinch myself when I remember I have been there.
I get really annoyed when my passport doesn’t get stamped properly – I like to be able to read the name of the places I’ve visited, not just have some smudgy inky mess!
I’d love to visit Patagonia, Belize and Japan. Those are just the tip of the iceberg though – my bucket list is pretty long.
Little Salmon Bay on Rottnest Island where my husband proposed!
A grotty bus station in Guangzhou, China at 4am on my 19th Birthday – we were trying to get to Hong Kong on the cheap but didn’t quite manage to make it in time for my birthday!
Either Seattle or Rio de Janeiro.
My family and proper British cheese!
