Meet Heidy Pandora. She’s 25 years old and is living her dream of travelling the world, even if it’s in a somewhat unconventional way.
A fan of 'travel dating', Heidy packs up her things and gets on a plane whenever an eligible suitor invites her on an international date - and she loves it so much that she's just set up her own travel dating website so other young singles can do the same.
The idea is that travel-curious people can sign up with a dating profile, and if a wealthy person is prepared to pay to take them on a holiday, they can get in contact and request the company.
Many of the men Heidy has met in this way are married and looking for someone to escape with while overseas, but she says that while most her expenses are paid for, sex isn’t necessarily a requirement.
“If we connect, things happen. But if we don't connect then we just have fun on the trip or I just come back,” she told The Sun last year.
“I don't see it as such a big deal to have sex with married men. If they're married and looking somewhere else, they're not happy. Some of them don't have any sexual relationship with their wives anymore.”
Heidy first fell in love with travelling when she went to Mexico four years ago. She had been battling depression and immediately felt better once away from her regular life.
As she can’t afford to keep that up on her own, Heidy signed up to go on travel dates and quickly became addicted. Now she’s set up her own travel dating site so more people can do the same.
