Why do you travel and look for adventures?
What’s your go-to travel hack?
I have so many! But of course flying in long-haul in business class for less than the price of economy tickets is probably one of the best.
Got any gear you can’t travel without?
What destination are you eager to go back to?
How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?
What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?
What’s your favourite word in another language?
Thank you. (Technically two words in English, but not in other languages!) It’s incredibly useful and the first word I tend to learn. Hello is a close second.
How has travel changed in your lifetime and how will it change over the next 25 years?
When I started traveling full-time in 2006, smartphones didn’t exist. It’s funny – I’ve almost forgotten how I managed without the constant connectivity most of us now have with maps and translators and the power of worldwide communication at our fingertips 100% of the time! Travel is definitely much easier now. In the next 25 years, I hope that we will all travel a bit more conscientiously, in terms of being socially and environmentally responsible. That can take many forms, but I think the pandemic and climate change have been catalysts to combat issues like over-tourism and waste management.
