Where you have traveled and where would you still like to go?
I’ve traveled a lot of Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia. Next on my list is South America. Argentina to see Patagonia, Mendoza, Iguazu and of course, Buenos Aires. Ecuador to dive in the Galapagos. Peru to hike Machu Picchu. Apart from South America, Dubai to visit some friends. Japan to eat all the food. I’ll hit all 7 continents at some point.
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
I would say one of the hardest things I’ve ever done was skied the Vallee Blanche, an off-piste ski route starting at the top of the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (the highest mountain in the French Alps). After strapping your gear onto your back and traversing what is essentially a ridge edge, the route down presents itself with serac falls, crevasses and long flat runs making it especially tricky for snowboarders like myself. Overestimated my abilities on that one but it was worth it. I’m hoping to go back to redeem myself!
What sports star would you most like to meet?
Roger Federer. Hands down. No questions asked. Fingers crossed.
