Where in the world is your dream destination?
My dream destination has always been the Taj Mahal. Well, if not always then at least since I watched Aladdin when I was 10 years old. The sultan’s palace ignited something in me.
In 2006 I fulfilled my dream not only to see, but to touch and feel the seventh wonder of the world. I watched the sunset reflecting off its marble domes and touched the waters of the Yamuna river as it refracted in to a thousand golden hues.
How do you go about packing your bag?
I like to plan everything in advance, and yes, as you may have guessed, I’m a painstaking person. Maps, guides, even when trips are short, everything must be meticulously planned. Regarding clothes, I select the minimum necessary, but the most important thing is that those few garments are versatile, so that I can create lots of different looks.
On my next holiday I’ll be wearing …
My next trip is to London, it will be shorter than I would like, but as always the suitcase that I take will be half empty. What I take is just for the first few days because I like to visit all the shops and vintage stores in the cities that I sojourn picking up pieces along the way.
I can think of few things better than getting lost in the small and quaint shops of a city like London – it’s one of my favourite destinations.
I’d describe my holiday style as low key.
I like discovering lots of different sites, so I like to merge into the local crowd to enjoy the food and the everyday places. Of course, I always carry my DSLR and an analogue Lomo camera, just in case!
