1. Where do you live?

I reside in Bangalore, the Garden City of India along with my wife and son.

2. What do you like the most about travelling?

The feeling of thrill and excitement that overwhelms you from within when you get off a plane in a new city is many a time indescribable. The promise of new sights, interactions with new people, the taste of new food, breathing in new cultural experiences, I love all of this. I also think it is a great learning experience to be out of your comfort zone every once in a while. My travels across countries have been rich learning experiences and this is what I love the most about travelling.

3. What are your travel pet peeves?

Last minute changes in flight schedules and long immigration queues; I wish these experiences could be less painful.

4. Which airline do you prefer travelling by?

My favourite airline is Singapore Airlines. I enjoy flying with them all the time.

5. Which is your favourite holiday destination?

A holiday that’s forever etched in my memory is a 10 day adventure tour of Tasmania, Australia that I did way back in 2001. We were a bunch of strangers who travelled together in a big SUV for 10 days exploring Tasmania. We cooked our own food, stayed in camps in the jungle, trekked in torrential rain and experienced some breathtaking sights of beautiful beaches, waterfalls, mountains and wild life there.

6. Which is your favourite business destination?

I usually only travel for Amusement Park Trade Shows and the biggest one happens in Orlando, Florida. It is a magical place where big business deals and entertainment meet in the most unusual ways!

7. What do you always carry in your cabin luggage?

An iPad, headphones, my charger, books, a sleep mask and a moisturiser; you will always find these in my cabin luggage

8. Describe your gadget arsenal?

I never travel without my iPad, iPhone and headphones. If I’m travelling on a holiday I will surely carry along my Canon G12 camera as well. I always travel with my Leatherman Charge TTi Pocket knife/Multi-Tool which has everything from a plier to a bottle opener in it.

9. Which is your preferred luggage brand?

Tumi Ultra Lite, their bags are light and durable and suit my needs perfectly.

10. What’s playing on your iPod?

You will find everything from Rock to Dub-Step on my playlist.

11. What are you currently reading?

Enchantment by Guy Kawasaki, I am really enjoying the read.
