What’s your packing style?
I bring neutrals so everything matches. I play a game: If I can wear it all at least twice, then I can consider myself an efficient packer. Not overpacking shoes is a challenge.
Any favourite culinary destinations?
Right now, it’s Tel Aviv for its breakfasts. At the Market House Hotel, they put out the most incredible, healthy spread, including fresh lentil salads, all sorts of cheeses, smoked fish and the best housemade hummus.
How do you stay healthy on the fly?
Travel is hard on the skin, so I drink as much water as I can. I also eat the things I would at home, like vegetables. And to maintain my overall health while I travel I take chlorophyll supplements.
What are your favourite souvenirs?
Eight years ago I bought a pink Venetian glass bowl in London on Portobello Road, and I still have it on display. I also bought a pair of knee-high Christian Dior boots in Rome. When I saw them I got so swept up in the moment, I just said: “Charge it.” I want to be buried in them.
