Kate Moss's half-sister Lottie is fast making a name for herself in the modelling world. Already, the 18-year-old has modelled for Calvin Klein and has graced the cover of British Vogue.

She also recently holidayed in Barbados with her boyfriend Alex Mytton. Handluggageonly.co.uk feels a great reason to go to Barbados is to swim with turtles. You can feed them as they swim about elegantly in the Caribbean Sea. Or you can head into lush rainforests. About 40 minutes north of the capital city, Bridgetown, you'll find some of Barbados's most beautiful forests.

There are no poisonous snakes or spiders to worry about, so explore the trees to your heart's content.

Or simply relax. Grab yourself a cocktail, rub on that sunblock and wander down to the beach.

Sweet dreams are made of...

A photo speaks a thousand words
