Kishu Gomes, Chairman, Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority, likes to de-stress by sprinting followed by a body-toning workout. “Besides being a former national athlete, not many people know that I can cut and stitch my own shirt,” he shared. Two of Gomes’ most memorable holiday moments were a vacation in Sydney when he bumped into my classmate and best friend after 30 years and another was when he almost lost his second son at a night market in Malaysia. Maldives is a favourite for John Spence, Founder & Chairman, Karma Group. “I also love the Greek used to sleep on the beach. Today, I don’t have to do that because I have hotels there. How things change!” he expressed. Spence’s style of travelling now is luxury and he tries his level best to provide to his guests too. He likes sea, food, and a relaxing environment. Ibrahim Hakki Guntay, General Manager—Western & Southern India, Turkish Airlines travels a lot and memorable holiday moments was from Niger to Mali in a desert and reading ‘The Little Prince’ who have read the book will understand my sentiment,” he said. Among his favourite holiday destinations in India is the Taj Mahal in Agra and its garden. Guntay has travelled to more than 30 countries but hasn’t seen a city like Porto in Portugal, he confesses.
