Express. As editor of Travel de la Creme, she has checked out 330 luxury hotels and knows more than is healthy about marble, travertine and Corian. Where will you spend the summer? My discovery this year has been Austria, especially for the genuine friendliness and lack of pretension across the country. For summer, I’m off to Sweden. I’m looking forward to driving across the Oresund Bridge, which featured so heavily in Scandi TV drama The Bridge. And where would you go if money and time were no object? I’d like to return to India and perhaps set up a charity, to feel as if I am putting something back.


Jane Anderson Jane is editor ofFamily Travellerand regularly travels the world with her children, Scarlett 11 and Finlay 8, when not at her desk. Where will you spend the summer? In early summer we’re heading to the Anassa in Cyprus to test a new


sailing course. At the start of the summer holidays we’re off to Northumberland to try out a Coastal Retreats property, then in August we’ll fly to Bermuda to check out its family friendly credentials. And where would you go if money and time were no object? I would take my family on an extensive adventure around the Far East, which they’ve never been to, revisiting my favourite places such as Bali and exploring new ones like Cambodia. I’d carry on to New Zealand to tour of all those luxury lodges and let my kids see the rawness of nature there with all that epic Lord of the Rings scenery.
