What I Pack: Rhys Mathewson

Do you travel light or heavy?

I try to travel light, with the hope that everything I need can be carry-on luggage. But I always make sure I pack an extra T-shirt and pair of boxer-briefs. Boxer-briefs provide the best of both worlds.

Cattle or first class?

What sort of upper class rich people call it cattle? Do you think we moo back here while you sip on your champagne? Let's see you call it cattle when the proletariat comes knocking on your door.

I can't travel without...

My boarding pass. Boom! Good joke!

What type of suitcase do you carry?

One with wheels. I am a very lazy man.

What's always in your hand luggage?

A good book. If I've done all of the Air NZ Quiz questions before, it provides a nice alternative.

What's the best thing you've brought back from a trip?

Presents for other people. Not because I enjoy being generous and making other people happy, but it means when they go away they're obliged to bring me a present.

Favourite or most exciting airport to land in?

I quite enjoyed landing in Hong Kong at night. It was a neon jungle. But their Burger King tasted a bit weird.
