  • 1. What’s your favorite piece of luggage to travel with?

    RIMOWA all the way - the ones with the wheels that move 360degrees when case is upwards. Doubles up as a kids perch when dragging through the airport.

  • 2. What’s your Go-To Travel Uniform?

    A large, soft Temperley London blanket shawl to have over my head if sleeping.

  • 3. Can’t Travel Without:

    Make skincare rose face oil, headphones and a notebook.

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    I almost got arrested for having an IPad case with a very realistic 3D gun detail when going through customs ... I have also been marched out of an airport once wearing a small golden gun necklace around my neck - I had to send it back to London in a black taxi. For longer holidays, I pack marmite…

  • 5. Favorite thing to nick from the hotel room?

    Ummmm....I have pinched a few DRESSING GOWNS, but the rates justified it…so thought it was acceptable. I was in my old Chateau Marmont one this morning :)
