1) Incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience.

2) Ability to read people’s minds.

3) I would be happy to trade my life with myself again – I might give it a few tweaks though.

4) Get married (again) in Japan; Drive Route 66 with my husband; Visit the Taj Mahal

1) A great story!

2) The ability to speak to animals, so when I’m hungover on a Sunday morning I could politely ask the birds to pipe up elsewhere.

3) I hesitate answering this because you don’t know the troubles others are facing behind closed doors… at least I am the devil I know. But the short answer is Jay Kay – Jamiroquai Singer because of his car collection.

4) Swim with Great White Sharks; poke lava with a stick; see something that takes my breath away.

5) The city is getting more and more exciting so all sorts, but Botanic Gardens in the summer (outdoor cinema).

1) Trust, friendship, niggly.

2) The ability to time travel and pause time, so I can use it for the next question.

3) Can I trade back? Because I really like my life at the mo! If I can trade back to my own life then someone in a super powerful position who possibly isn’t using it as well as they could. But I’d need lots of help and time – hence previous answer.

4) Travel; Go to Tomorrowland (music festival in Belgium); raise children of my own.

5) Going to events in Hagley Park in the summer with friends (wine, food and music festivals).

1) Challenging, confronting and enlightening.

2) Teleporting so I could travel the world without jetlag and enduring cattle class.

3) Meghan Markle, because she’s topical, beautiful and is an amazing well rounded aspirational female; an inspiring role model in my eyes!

4) To visit the last continent in the world I haven’t been to yet – Antarctica!
To learn fluently another language; to watch an NBA game In the USA (front row next to Leonardo DiCaprio… dream big right?).

5) Start at The Tannery for brunch then op shopping followed by a visit to Willowbank – to feed my obsession with animals, then dinner down The Terrace (with some uncoordinated dancing to follow later in the night).

1) Stressful but fun.

2) I’d like to wake up tomorrow and be able to get my commercial pilot’s license.

3) I wouldn’t trade lives with anyone, I’m pretty happy being me.

4) Travel the world with someone amazing; do a hot lap in a Maserati and race a McLaren; meet Chris Pratt.

5) Go out to an amazing restaurant with wicked mates or barbecue on the deck. Biking and snowboarding.
