If you could choose one completely impractical dream to follow for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Sail around the world on a ship, not one of those sleek little yachts but a proper, big ship with sails and everything (and powered by clean energy to minimize my environmental footprint). I’d spend a few months at each port exploring inland, then return to my ship to sail off again, and spend endless days at sea sitting on deck and reading.
Pick one: world domination or world peace.
World domination, because I’m sure I could achieve world peace — and I can make people learn how to use apostrophes correctly and cause all the mischief I want to!
What are two of your favourite possessions?
My Kindle and my current Moleskine — without which all my best (and worst) ideas would dissipate into nothingness.
What are your favourite smells?
Chanel Number 19. Coffee. Sandalwood incense. Books. Champak flowers on a warm night. The approaching rain. Fresh lavender. Eucalyptus trees, a wood fire and a tinge of diesel on a the platform of a mountain railway.
What’s an offer you can’t refuse?
“Would you like to dance?”
