Her luck doesn’t stop there – Turkey is her second home, which she loves and we don’t blame her.

However, there is another side to Hollie, which is an unusual condition called, ‘pug chihuahua’ – actually, that’s her dog Frankie, and he is the adorable apple of her eye😉.

She has a massive phobia of flying and the dentist but is overcoming her fears one by one, by travelling extensively and a set of new teeth which she got in Turkey. You will now always find her smiling from ear to ear!
