Travel Tales: Kim McKay
Occupation: Business Owner – Travel PR
Favourite travel destination?: New York (if you have been you would know the answer to why – if you haven’t been just GO!)
Worst travel experience?: Every time you travel it’s a gift. You learn and grow from every experience so I don’t have a worst – I embrace it all.
Best tips for beating jetlag?: Before boarding change your watch destination time zone. Eat meals and sleep according to the time at your destination
What is the one thing you don’t leave home without?: iPhone
Do you stay in touch with people while you’re travelling?: iPhone using Twitter, Facebook, email and phone
Best meal you’ve ever had while travelling?: A birthday dinner on the west coast of Ireland. The restaurant was rustic and warm, we dined on Salmon straight from the sea – I have never tasted better and don’t think I ever will.
Best kiss?: At the end of an amazing day walking around Paris we found ourselves on the ‘kissing bridge’ overlooking the river Seine so we did and it was very romantic.
Best/scariest/funniest drive?: A three week drive around the Emerald Isle. Having no plan and just deciding each morning what we wanted to do that day. When you can cross a country in a three hour drive you can kinda roll with it. Enjoying an outdoor U2 concert was a real highlight.
What has been the big WOW moment of your travelling life?: Arriving in London by myself on my first overseas trip. The feeling of freedom when I realised no one in the world (who knew me) had any clue where or was or what I was doing was exhilarating. I finally realised that the world was open to me and I could set my own course – which I relish to this day!
