The Place I Can't-Wait to Travel to in 2022:
Japan. I usually fly to Japan every year but now have not been since 2019 and can’t wait to go back. But I’m eager to fly to the Maldives or Asia-Pacific and test one of these beautiful new resorts as well.
The Destination that Impressed Me Most in 2021:
Fasano in Puglia. Stayed at the Borgo Egnazio hotel and had the best time in this still relatively undiscovered region. Had the best local Italian dishes.
The One Thing I Never Fail to Do/See in a New Destination?
The museums. I always research where I am going and prepare for downtime at the destination. I mostly travel for work so I don’t always have the chance for extensive visits but I do go exploring immediately after arrival. If it’s a beach destination, I’m the first in the ocean.
The One Item I Take on All My Travels:
My Secret for an Airline Upgrade:
Collecting miles on the trips before
Sustainable Travel Means to Me:
Using train over the plane, electric car rental over gas, staying at eco-resorts, paying the carbon offset
My Favourite Restaurant in the World:
Uff that’s difficult. I have to say I love the Bulgari restaurant in Ginza. But Eleven Madison Park comes pretty close as well.
The Best Wine I Had During Lockdown:
Probably a crisp glass of Meursault burgundy
My Favourite Travel App:
Trivago - Sixt - I always get excited when not booking directly with the Hotels or PR departments to see if I end up staying somewhere new or different. Sixt gets me every car I need, everywhere.
My Perfect Sunday at Home:
- Gym or exercise
- Lunch with friends
- Sunday movies or cinema
