When on vacation where do you spend most of your time, in the town, on the beach or out and about exploring nature?
I love the water, in particular the ocean. When I think about my retirement, I can picture myself in a house with a seaview. I think it is one of the most beautiful gift you can get.
Describe the trip in 3 words.
Evasion, discovery and relaxation.
What is your dream destination?
On a paradise-like island with my family, spend ten days in an amazing glass house at the edge of a beautiful beach with crystal clear water.
What is your favourite place in the world?
Palma de Mallorca in Spain.
I discovered this island ten years ago, my children were born there and I am still linked sentimentally with this place.
The Setai Hotel in Miami.
A magnificent place with Asian-inspired decor. I have fond memories of the Spa.
Your favourite restaurant in the world?
L’Avenue in Paris.
This is not the best French food I have eaten but I love the trendy side of the restaurant. When I am visiting Paris, I always try to go there.
On an island what would you take with you (key items)?
My Iphone (plus a solar charger) because I’m addicted to my phone.
A toiletry case and an umbrella.
Back in time…
In the 60s, I love the fashion and elegance of women of that time.
I think I would have liked to live at that time.
