How many places (cities or countries) have you visited?

I’ve travelled to South America, the US and Canada, Africa, the Far East and Europe.

Which did you like most?

Singapore and Thailand as a combined holiday destination were wonderful.

Your worst experience on a holiday?

February in New York.

It was a bit chilly and I was not prepared for the weather in terms of clothing.

Your funniest experience?

I was with friends and we got lost in LA and ended up driving on the wrong side of the road.

What do you avoid during a holiday?

In most cases I don’t enjoy winter holidays.

Your favourite restaurant and food during your travels?

Bouchon Bakery in New York. It’s decadent and amazing.

Your favourite place to drink a glass of wine or to have sundowners?

A beach in Bali.

As a seasoned traveller and flyer can you share some tips?

Always have a fully charged iPod, and a Kindle/iPad. Drink loads of fluids while travelling. Plan your trip on the net beforehand so you have things to do all the time (unless it’s a beach holiday). Take loads of pictures (digital cameras are really affordable now). - Sunday Argus
