“I went to Morocco with my wife and a friend and we spent the days shopping in the souks (we bought 60,000 mint-tea glasses for my Caban stores) and the evenings in the casino next to our hotel, La Mamounia, in Marrakech. That property is magical, with oversize pools that look like reflecting ponds; I remember a mint-green Rolls-Royce outside that belonged to the king, who’d been staying there since he was a child.”

“Food heaven is Portland, Maine, where every two feet you can find a fresh lobster roll, not to mention thickly battered fried clams and a Friendly’s Maple Walnut ice cream cone. My favourite sit-down restaurant there is Fore Street, right in the heart of the Old Port District.”

“I don’t think you can overlook the islands right off Cape Cod where I live half the year; Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are just as good as it gets, in terms of golf. The Country Club at New Seabury on Cape Cod’s southern shore is home to one of my favourite courses, the Ocean Course. It’s right on the ocean like they can’t build ’em anymore, and while you play you feel the wind whipping over Nantucket Sound.”
