1. My Best Travel Memory So Far: Probably Malaysia, the people, food, scene, ravers and the country were all wicked!
2. Favorite Hotel and Why
: The Jumeirah Beach Hotel
in Dubai. It had everything, including shops, restaurants, a gym, an amusement park, water slides. The space was big, the service was excellent and the weather helped too!
3. My Must Haves on any Flight are: Good food, good selection of films, the right wildlife programs and pretty air hostesses!
4. When on the Road, I Absolutely Hate: When the equipment isn’t right or it is not being looked after properly when I’m out for a gig. And, in certain countries, when smoking is still allowed in the clubs.
5. My Dream Destination or Vacation: The Dominican Republic.
6. The Three Things I Can’t Travel Without: Laptop, headphones and a hoodie for the flight.
7. Top Lesson I’ve Learned While Traveling: Not everyone speaks English so don’t expect them to!
