We love to profile real people alongside the Carry On Watson brand to help encapsulate what it means to ‘Carry On’ in life, work and travel. Introducing Francesca Peskops, producer of events and travel junky at heart.


WHAT PAYS FOR YOUR ADVENTURES (AKA, WHAT’S YOUR DAY JOB)?
I am the co-founder and creative director of Event Emporium, a boutique agency. We specialise in strategic marketing events brought to life through our unique combination of artistry and alchemy. Travel is a major source of inspiration for design, entertainment, products, as well as culinary ideas… my favourite part.

 
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE ADVENTURE?
Living in Spain for two years on a working holiday. Embracing the vibrant and open culture of the Spanish people was a highlight along with the incredible food and artistic passion of such a expressive nation. Once immersed in the culture I found I embraced their sense of relaxed adventure, living each day as it comes, in a less organised way than we are used to. Spain encapsulates my favourite things; entertainment, art, and food ... simpatico, sums it up!


IF YOU HAD AN UNLIMITED BUDGET AND 10 DAYS AT YOUR DISPOSAL, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Africa. Being an avid animal lover I would take a luxury safari camping tour to see the beasts I have only seen at the zoo or on the discovery channel. I would also love to meet the natives and conclude with an aerial tour of the stunning country.

WHEN YOU TRAVEL, WHAT DON’T YOU LEAVE HOME WITH OUT?
Really good cosmetics; hand, body, and night cream to fight skin fatigue.  A lightweight large scarf is essential to make it through different weather zones and my kindle is a must… travel means the luxury of reading time.

WHERE ARE YOU PLANNING YOUR NEXT TRIP?
I am a travel junky and often book a new holiday as I am concluding one. Besides some local travel to Noosa and Byron Bay, I am going skiing in Colorado for 3 weeks. Following that I’m off to an experiential summit in Chicago and then NYC to be part of a thought leaders round table on events.
