Andrea Aftab Pauro, Director, EATINC Food & Beverage Pvt. Ltd.
Where do you live?
Currently, I reside in Delhi.
What do you like most about travelling?
What intrigues me about travelling is seeing new places and people, and the change of scene.
What do you like the least about travelling?
The not-so amazing aspects about travelling are airline food and the long security checks. I always travel almost empty handed and check everything in.
Which airlines do you prefer travelling by?
Quite a few- Thai, Jet, IndiGo, Emirates and Etihad. Most of these have new planes.
Which hotels do you prefer staying at?
Any hotel that is strategically-located, and has a pool, squash court and spacious rooms. Oh, and a great Italian coffee in the morning would help too.
Which is your favourite business destination?
Anywhere on business is fun; though if I had to choose, I’d say Rome, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Dubai.
What do you always carry in your check-in baggage?
My toiletry kit is paramount.
What’s playing on your i-Pod?
A smattering of jazz, Indian classical, psychedelic trance, rock, and African and Latin music. I avoid packaged music like pop.
What are you reading right now?
A book written by Richard Feynman on Quantum Electro Dynamics. Next book- Capitalism Hits the Fan by Richard Wolff.
