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:

Camera

My secret for an airline upgrade:

Collecting miles on the trips before

Sustainable travel means to me:

Using train over plane, electric car rental over gas, stay 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:

  • Breakfast
  • Gym or exercise
  • Lunch with friends
  • Sunday movies or cinema
