Frequent Flyer: Ky Furneaux

Ky Furneaux, stunt woman and wilderness expert.


Jacques Cousteau's eco hotel Ariau Amazon Towers in Brazil, which allows you to experience all the wildness of the Amazon from a place of luxury and comfort.


I fly Virgin every chance I get. Their planes are always clean, comfortable and full of the latest technology and their staff are fun and friendly. I broke my foot on holiday in Australia and, when I had to get back to LA, they upgraded me so that I would have more room.


The Aura Cozumel Grand Resort. Cozumel is a little island just off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. I'm a huge fan of snorkelling and scuba diving and this resort has gorgeous ocean life just off its white sandy beach. Although I'm happy sleeping in the dirt, I also love a bit of luxury with feather pillows and service and this place has it all.


My Eagle Creek travel pack, which can be worn as a backpack, has a full front-opening zip like a suitcase if I need to get access to items at the bottom. All the straps zip away, so they don't get caught on the airport conveyor belts.



My Manduka travel yoga mat is super light and packs down small. After years of doing stunt work, it can take a little bit to get my body moving in the morning and I always try to start my day with some stretching. I also carry a multi-tool knife, such as a Leatherman, because it can help out in all sorts of sticky situations from stuck zips to broken taps in your hotel room.


I have always wanted to do a cruise down the Nile and check out the ancient wonders in Egypt.
