My most luxurious and adventurous trip:
Luxury in my mind is synonymous with abundance. When I think of my most luxurious trips, I think of the summer solstice on the Arctic plain. The effects of limitless daylight cannot be understated. 24 hours of daylight combined with the wide-open spaces of the tundra, create a feeling of euphoria where the only limits are those of our imaginations. Combine this with a comfortable and well-provisioned camp and add in herds of caribou stretching to the horizon, showing up seemingly from nowhere and then disappearing back into the endless tundra - you have a feeling of abundance and luxury unparalleled.

My favourite place in the world:
My favourite place on earth is without a doubt the arctic coast of Alaska where the tundra melts into the sea. Though austere at first glance the arctic coast is a place of tremendous abundance and diversity. From the intrepid flowers blooming on the tundra to the skeins of sea-ducks to the grizzly bears, caribou and musk oxen each searching for food, everywhere you look on the summer tundra life abounds in a seemingly inhospitable landscape. There is no place I'd rather be than to be sitting on the tundra near the Arctic Coast watching birds under the midnight sun.
