I travel frequently, both for work and because of the decisions I’ve made about the architecture of my life.
Over the years I’ve developed a few routines and rituals: I was, for example, wiping down every airplane surface long before Naomi Campbell publicly validated the behaviour.
Before I travel, I try to clean or at the very least tidy up the space I’ll be returning to. There are few things quite so delicious as getting back from a trip, taking a comforting shower, and then settling into the nice clean sheets that you remembered to change before you left. If I’m staying in a hotel, I leave every day.
