The Hong Kong­based travel writer ex­plores Antarc­tica on a su­pery­acht in Go With the Floe (p.116)

What’s the hottest place you’ve ever vis­ited? Tem­per­a­ture-wise, Saudi Ara­bia. The ther­mome­ter peaked at 47 de­grees Cel­sius once. You could fry an egg on the Land Cruiser’s bon­net. As for the trendi­est place, I just got back from Tbil­isi in Georgia and I think that city has a lot go­ing for it. There’s a great wine cul­ture, cool bou­tique ho­tels and a her­itage of hos­pi­tal­ity.

What’s the one item you can’t live with­out? Noise-can­celling head­phones.

Give us an ex­pert trav­eller’s tip. Think ahead—there’s noth­ing worse than be­ing freezing or the only one not swim­ming sim­ply be­cause you didn’t plan prop­erly for your trip. Learn­ing a few lines of the lo­cal lingo also goes a long way.
