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.
