Q: What was your favourite vacation?
Even though I live by the sea and I adore spending time at the beach, my favourite vacation would be any of my winter holidays that I spent hiking, playing in the snow and getting cosy by the fireplace with a glass of mulled wine.

In that case I would definitely travel the world.

My wedding party.
Q: The last film, book, concert?
Last film – Focus with Will Smith; Last book – The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy.

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
