Visiting Santa Claus at his village in Lapland Finland and taking a picture with him in his office!

What did you have for breakfast?

Toast with strawberry jam and grilled halloumi

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?

I am a night person, I can never wake up in the morning!! Camp fire on the beach with my friends, barbequing, guitar playing and singing

Best book ever read?

A Walk to Remember – I like its main message – you can never judge someone from the outside because you don’t know what that person is going through

Favourite film of all time?

The Last Song – it shows the importance of health and the values and bonds within the family

Best holiday ever taken? What’s your dream trip?

It was a visit to the US last year with my whole family. I got to travel around to different States and see so many different places, sightseeing attractions, visit family, friends, universities: unforgettable!! My dream trip is to go somewhere and swim with dolphins

Antonis Remos

Fresh fruit

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?

A retreat on the beach set in a rich green forest. Modern spacious bright rooms and all with a view of the sea

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?

Abraham Lincoln for being so much ahead of his time and recognising the value of human freedom

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?

Be with my loved ones and hold my youngest brother tightly in my arms. I would also take the time and talk to people who I never found the time before to tell them either how much I loved them or apologise for something I said or did.

What is your greatest fear?

Losing someone I love
