Samantha's Top Travel Tips
Take an adapter a travel iron and a travel kettle as lots of hotels abroad don't realise how much the British love their cups of tea!
My favourite destination is Zante because it has amazing sandy beaches and lovely people. It is also a very green island and has fabulous food and you can swim with turtles in the lovely warm bay.
