How I travel: Blair Strang

Do you travel light or heavy?
I try to travel light but inevitably always pack more. I always go with only two pairs of shoes - casual and dressy.

Cattle or first class?
I've been an actor for 13 years, so always cattle. Now that I'm a lawyer maybe first class - one day!

I can't travel without ...
My jeans and a shaver.

What type of suitcase do you carry?
One with wheels.

What's always in your hand luggage?
My wallet and cellphone.

Are you a planner or last-minute packer?
Last-minute - have packed one hour beforehand and forgotten my underpants.

What's the best thing you've brought back from a trip?
Soviet Army gear after the fall of the Berlin wall in the 1990s.

Favourite or most exciting airport to land in?

Best travel tip?
Try to sleep on the plane - and don't get drunk on a long flight. You often get drunk really quickly and end up having a hangover for a very long journey.

Most memorable trip?
I have two - my first time to London when I was 18 with my best mate, and my recent trip to Japan - loved being able to choose different movies.

What do you do while on the plane?
Usually watch a movie and sleep - I can't read on planes as I get airsick.

* Blair Strang stars in Whero's New Net, September 13 to October 4, Herald Theatre, Auckland.
