ITTN Awards 2022 – ‘Travels with Lucy’: Getting to Know Your Host for the Night, Lucy Kennedy

You might think you know television celeb’, childrens’ book author – and ITTN Awards night 2022 hostLucy Kennedy, but do you really?!

We all know her as an old friend of Podge & Rodge, the real star of Ireland’s Got Talent, the creator of The Friendship Fairies series of books, and presenter of fly-on-the-wall documentary series Livin’ with Lucy and Lucy Investigates.

But, there’s so much more to her than all that…We sat down for a quick chat to dig deeper and pick up on a few travel dos and don’ts ahead of the big night this Friday…

Are you an avid traveller or more of a home-bird?

“As ex-cabin crew, I loved travelling. But, since our children have come along my travel urge is on hold!!!”

What is your favourite overseas holiday destination?

“I would say Playa Blanca in Lanzarote or – more recently – Alicante.”

Do you have a favourite holiday memory?

“Our honeymoon in the Maldives…Heaven!”

What is your ‘must-visit’/bucket list holiday destination?

“Venice. I have never been and have heard so much about it.”

Is there some place – a city, country or destination – that you really want to visit in 2023?

“Yes, I would love to bring our children to Paris.”

Are you a sun worshipper or an adventure junkie?

“Sun worshipper through and through. I adore it! I lie like a walrus and don’t move…unless to bronze my back!!!

Any favourite food memories – something that you tried on holiday and it stayed with you (in a good way)?

“I adore Greek food; I remember my first moussaka. Delish!!!”

What are your must-have items when travelling overseas?

“Sudocrem…My instyler to curl my hair…My pillow!”
