Fifteen minutes with photographer Sarah Mikaela
How often do you travel for work? And for pleasure?
I travel around twice a month on average and the nature of my job means that travel and work are almost always interwoven.
Tell us about your usual on-flight attire. Dress or jeans?
I tend to wear athletic-wear when I travel, I’m quite the practical captain!
What do you pack first?
I try to pack contact lenses first because I have previously forgotten them, which meant I had a very blurry trip. And I always make sure I have a pair of jeans because they’re so versatile and easy to wear.
What’s your ideal destination and who would you ideally spend it with?
It would be Maritius or Sicily! And I think I would bring my mum at some point because we haven’t done a solo trip together before and she’s from Denmark so I don’t get to see her that often.
I always make sure to bring a white cotton shirt with me wherever I go and a pair of comfy jeans.
What’s your go-to dress?
It would be a really simple 70s style dress - kind of bohemian, quite flowy in white or cream. Or maybe a pale yellow.
What three items of clothing could you never travel without?
I always travel with a dress in case I’m attending an event, a white cotton shirt and a pair of comfy jeans.
Can you tell us your “mantra of the moment”?
Just to be happy! It’s so easy to put validation somewhere else in this industry so I think it’s important to be centred.
Crucial question: what’s your spirit vegetable? And why?
It’s got to be broccoli! The life and soul of the party. Just imagine if broccoli could dance - with all that funky hair too.
