Jacqui turns the table around on her show’s producer and dear friend, Diana O’Gilvie of Urban Sass Digital Solutions and puts her in the guest seat to discuss her career in production plus food & travel writing. Jamaican born, New York raised Diana shares tales of daily life on the magical island of Bali and it’s fame as a spiritual retreat, a life-threatening situation on Krakatoa and how a Chinese family “adopted” her on the ferry between Hong Kong and Taipei. They rave about their love for Scandinavia, praise Finnish style, sauna culture, and Diana’s encounters with the indigenous Sami people of Lapland. They delve into their travel styles, the merits of long vacations, staycations and mini breaks. Diana shares the shifts she has observed as a writer in the travel space over the years, her upcoming TV productions, her dream of sharing more visual narratives from Caribbean women and forging future links with West Africa.
