Is there anywhere you’d recommend/like to go to for a special occasion?
New York still blows me away. I’ve only been a couple times, but it’s overwhelmingly impressive and never dull. I’m still hanging onto the dream that I’ll get to live there one day.
Best overseas purchase?
I recently bought a tailored winter jacket in London that gets fair wear throughout the Melbourne winter.
Best travelling tale?
Meeting Ray Kelvin, the founder of Ted Baker in the Ted Baker flagship store in London. I initially thought he was just an older shop assistant, but once he introduced himself as the founder, he went straight into personal clothing advice and conversations about business. Twenty minutes later, I’d spent £400 [about $680] on a new wardrobe I never knew I wanted. Smart guy.
Best thing about travelling?
Perspective. I feel so fortunate to live in Australia, but it was only when I spent significant time abroad that I realised how straightforward and stable life in Australia is.
