Do you travel light or heavy?

Very light when I'm travelling solo. A little heavier when my little girls are in tow.

Cattle or first class?

Cattle, all the way. Although a few years ago I was flown business class around the world on an epic seven-date concert tour that I was sure would never ever happen again so I made the most of it. Excuse me, can I please have another bubbly?

I can't travel without ...

My trusty old iPod jam-packed with all the music I love.

Are you a planner or a last-minute packer?

I don't tend to take too much stuff with me, and I hate to sound geeky, but that means there has to be some planning involved.

Favourite or most exciting airport to land in?

Given I don't like flying - although I refuse to let it get in the way of me going anywhere - airports are not on my list of favourite places.

However, the most exciting airport to fly into would be Mumbai or Delhi because I want to go back to India.

Most memorable trip?

Going to India with my wife. From the 26-hour train trip, sharing a compartment with four lovely old ladies and a few cheeky mice, to the crazy cows wandering all over the place, it is the most beautifully mad place. And then there's the food. If I ate nothing but paratha (a stuffed flat-bread) for the rest of my life, I would die a happy man.
