Do you have a favourite destination?
– It has to be Tulum. I was there for a photo shoot a couple of years ago but I only stayed for 36 hours and immediately felt that I have to come back at some point. It’s truly a little paradise, surrounded by palm trees, perfectly white beaches, turquoise water – and plenty of the best guacamole in the world.
Janni has an especially fond memory of the guacamole – and it’s preferably enjoyed with a couple of refreshing mojitos. When they were there, they also visited Pablo Escobar’s old house, which is now a hotel. Well worth a visit, according to Janni and Jon. But Tulum was not just sunshine and white beaches. When they arrived and had just checked in to their boutique hotel, the sky opened up.
– “All of a sudden, lightning struck the beach! It felt like it struck just outside our window and the storm shook the entire hotel room. It was a little scary but when we woke up the next morning, the storm had passed and it was a paradise with blue skies again.”
How do you pack for a trip like this?
– “I know how my clothes fit so I usually don’t try them on before – the looks turn out as I imagined anyway. But I always plan my outfits, no matter where I go.”
Do you have any great tips to share when it comes to packing?
– “Don’t pack too much. I try to pack clothes that will work with several different outfits. A skirt with leopard print works with a white top, a black t-shirt, and even a bikini top. I always pack a couple of really comfy clothes as well and I always end up wearing only those anyway!”
