How do you prepare for an international trip?
Normally I get a haircut and throw all my clothes into a bag 30 minutes before I have to leave. Then I check if I have my passports and then make a run for it.

Window or aisle?
Window.

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.

Which country stands high on your bucket list?
Japan.

What are your top travel tips?
Follow the rules.

What’s your travel style?
Move fast to get to where you want to be. Be prepared for absolutely anything.

Some traveling hacks, which is generally not known by people?
Make sure you get a plug who works at the airport to take you through VIP customs and check in.

Travel motto?
If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t.

Favourite airline? And why?
Turkish Airlines, of course! I mean have you seen their 5-star Business Class?! They have an on-board 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!
