She has been globetrotting for more than 50 years and covered over 744,000 miles – and here are her top 12 travelling tips.
Judith Chalmers, travel icon and host of Wish You Were Here, has pulled together handy hints for a stress-free trip – including appointing a group leader, packing light and learning a little lingo.
Her advice includes booking things early, always having a back-up of print-out tickets – and taking a comfy scarf.
She has also bagged a new and unusual role as ‘Chief Smile Officer’ at Heathrow Express– appointed to keep train travellers happy and help them have a smiley start.
In the mood for adventure
It comes after research found the average adult gets into a grumpy mood five times per week, and it takes 20 minutes to come out of it.
But half of the 2,000 adults polled are happy when they wake up on the day of a holiday, and 23 per cent feel in the mood for adventure.
Nearly a third (31 per cent) said booking a holiday never fails to put them in a good mood, and 25 per cent love the last day at work before a trip.
Another 32 per cent enjoy nothing more than feeling the sun on their face when they finally step off the plane and into their holiday.
