Hometown: Mumbai, India.
Occupation: Editor and founder of Mumbaiboss.com.
Favorite destinations: New York, Kenya, Goa, Paris.
Dying to visit: Botswana.
Bizarre travel rituals: Not sure if it counts as a ritual, but I almost never research a place I'm visiting. I like being surprised.
In-flight relaxation regime: Taking off my shoes, slipping into socks, and then passing out.
Always in carry-on: Pen, pencils, notebook.
Concierge or DIY? DIY.
See it all or take it easy? Depends where I'm heading, but I tend to lean towards the latter form of holidaying.
Drive or be driven? Neither. Walk or take the metro.
Travel hero: Bruce Chatwin, Roald Dahl.
Weirdest thing seen on travels: A family eating raw chunks of beef, which were meant to be cooked in a pot of oil, at a fondue restaurant in Paris.
Best hotel amenity: The white fluffy towels!
I dream about my meal at L'Entrecôte in London. It's all about the sauce and mopping it up with the fries.
Everywhere I go, I check out the parks and gardens.
When I arrive in a new place, I learn the lay of the land by asking locals or just wandering about till I figure it out.
I always bring home laundry.
If I never return to Casablanca, it'll be too soon because the airline lost my luggage at the airport and only returned it the day before I was leaving.
I travel for the views and the utter joy of exploring a place other than home.
