  • 1. What’s your go-to travel gear?

    My Brady Bag. It has everything I need for traveling - space for my iPad and a zip pocket for my passport.

  • 2. What’s your go-to travel uniform?

    Black khaki trousers. They are loose and comfortable and it’s easy to get the belt off quickly when I’m running through Dubai International Airport.

  • 3. Can’t travel without?

    Bright Blue Drum rolling tobacco. Along with a packet of rolling papers and a couple lighters hidden in my bag.

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed?

    A box of mangoes. In the height of mango season in India, I carried a box of mangoes in my suitcase. When I unpacked them, the whole lot had turned to mush. Or mango chutney.

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

    The ashtray. Most definitely.
