What does a journey mean to you?
Something new, fresh and exciting and being on the go.

Which country or location most inspires you?
So many, I feel that most countries I travel to influence me one way or another. I take away ideas for food, music and art not to mention memories. The Hebrides (Western Isles of Scotland) have an important role in my life. I spend time in the family cottage on a little island there, grounding or re-rooting myself surrounded by gorgeous skies and a landscape of hills and tidal beaches.

Where would you go back to and why?
I would love to go back to Japan. I spent a month there nearly 15 years ago and it was magical and a huge culture shock. I also recently traveled to New Orleans but three days and one night did not feel like enough to take in the incredible cultural melting pot there. So much music to check out. I also would go back in a heartbeat to Oaxaca and Sicily. Gorgeous architecture, colours and delicious food.

Top insider tip for Paris?
I would say go with the flow of who you meet on a night out. I live close to La Villette and I’m delighted by all the nearby concert venues and club nights taking place there. I have had some really good nights dancing at La Gare Des Petites Mines and Le Rex.

What journey would you most like to go on? There are so many. I just did a music tour in the United States (Nashville, Memphis, the Mississippi) and would love to do Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis. Vietnam and Korea or even closer locations like Tunisia, Algeria or Denmark are also on my bucket list, along with Naples.
