You’ve got such a huge international following on social media. How did it all start for you?
It’s really developed over the years. I can’t really pinpoint how or why, but when I travel the audience really responds to that and I see my numbers grow.
What is off-limits when it comes to social media?
Never post something that you will look at in time and ask—“what was I thinking?"
What are your top tips for a perfect selfie?
Good lighting! And a beaming smile (from your eyes, usually).
What is your favourite Instagram filter? Do you use any other editing apps?
A6 on VSCO.
