In to­day’s highly con­nected world, we asked a few fa­mil­iar faces where they would go to get away from it all

Es­ther Ma

“I en­joy tak­ing part in triathlons, box­ing, squash, golf, ski­ing, scuba-div­ing, the list goes on—i’m ea­ger to go trail run­ning on the Kokoda Trail in Pa­pua New Guinea be­fore I turn 60. Ap­par­ently the trail was a bat­tle­field in the Sec­ond World War. I love the com­bi­na­tion of his­tory, cul­ture and na­ture paired with an ex­treme phys­i­cal chal­lenge. It’s def­i­nitely on my bucket list!”

“My next big ad­ven­ture would have to be a trip to Antarc­tica: Firstly, be­cause it would be nice to get away from Hong Kong’s heat and hu­mid­ity. Se­condly, I would love to get close to the wildlife and ex­pe­ri­ence their feed­ing and breed­ing grounds, gain­ing in­sight into their lives in the wild—an ex­pe­ri­ence no zoo or aquar­ium can ever truly repli­cate.”

Car­men Lee

“I would have to say Um­bria in Italy—bet­ter known as the quaint and qui­eter sis­ter of Tus­cany, Um­bria has re­mark­able ar­chi­tec­ture, a beau­ti­ful land­scape and out­stand­ing food: think truf­fles. There’s no place I’d rather be than lis­ten­ing to live jazz while en­joy­ing an al­fresco evening in a rus­tic restau­rant in me­dieval Peru­gia.”

Annabelle Bond

“I dream of vis­it­ing the Raja Am­pat Is­lands in West Pa­pua to ex­pe­ri­ence the in­cred­i­ble div­ing and to dis­con­nect from all the noise that seems to con­sume you in a city. I’ve had the plea­sure of wit­ness­ing some of the most in­cred­i­ble scenery Mother Na­ture has to of­fer—so what’s left on my list is to find a place with no cell sig­nal. It’s a chal­lenge in it­self.”
