In my personal time, I love travelling. My list of countries explored continues to expand. Hiking and running are my favourite outdoor activities. It goes without saying, reading is another favourite pastime of mine. If you happened to sit next to me on a long haul flight in the past, my sincere apology to you for reading with the spotlight on. The very first flight I took was from Beijing to London. I made up my mind then that for every journey I take I will start it as one person and end it as another through reading and exploring. It has been marvellous to have people like Nelson Mandela, Richard Feynman, Winston Churchill, Adam Smith accompanying me in these journeys.
