TALK­ing Peo­ple

TravTalk - India - - MOVEMENTS -

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.
