Do you travel light or heavy?
Very, very light, however if we take the the kids we need a Smartbox truck and trailer to fit everything in.

I can't travel without...
A toothbrush.

What type of suitcase do you carry?
Just a small carry-on.

What's always in your hand luggage?
My toothbrush, iPad & clean Smartbox shirts.

Are you a planner or last-minute packer?
Planner for sure - everything gets packed and planned around midnight the day before!

What's the best thing you've brought back from a trip?
An extra 65kg of kids' Christmas toys. That's when the Smartbox truck and trailer came in handy.

Most memorable trip?
Travelling first class in the new A380 (with a 2-year-old and a newborn baby) on a 22-hour flight.

What do you do while on the plane - listen to iPod, watch the movie, sleep, read, panic?
I listen to my iPad, try and sleep - and yes, sometimes I panic!
