Window or aisle?


Must-pack item?

Gym clothes.


What were the top 5 things you needed to pack for this trip to Istanbul?

Portable charger, Reebok sneakers, my Rolex, my laptop and an open mind.

Favourite airline? And why?

Turkish Airlines, of course! I mean have you seen their 5-star Business Class?! They have an onboard chef which makes my selective food and drink choices a breeze and the fact that they offer a free Istanbul Tour for Turkish Airlines passengers with a layover of between 6-24 hours. That’s exploring 2 countries with one ticket!
