What I Pack: Jim Harre

Do you travel light or heavy?

Light; I try to use only one bag if I can get away with it.

Cattle or first class?

Business where possible, although it seems to be more economy these days.

I can't travel without ...

My iPad2 - it's music, books and work all in one.

What type of suitcase do you carry?

A cheap wheelie bag that I replace when needed; I used to have a suitcase but they are so heavy.

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

Memories of great times and the occasional extraordinarily good bottle of wine.

Favourite or most exciting airport to land in?

Hong Kong: great passenger facilities and you know you are in Asia.

Most memorable trip?

Three days at Schloss Vollrads beside the Rhine River, drinking great older rieslings, living it up in a 15th-century castle, celebrating a special person's birthday.

International wine judge Jim Harre is the Chair of the 2011 New World Wine Awards, which limit entry to wines under $25. The winners will be announced this week.
