We caught up with Michael London, Divisional Director: Fiduciary Liability at Camargue. Here’s what he had to say..
Have you ever travelled overseas before and which is your favourite destination?
I love travelling in Africa and are fascinated by how similar our cultures are across the continent as vast as it is. I am super excited though about this trip to the US, my first.
What is your favourite thing to do on an aeroplane?
Love my music, reggae and hip-hop all the way.
Why have you decided to join IIG Global 2019?
I love politics and couldn’t say no to this great opportunity to actually visit Washington DC, which is steeped in politics and its influence in shaping the world as we know it.
If you had one travel tip for first-time travellers what would it be?
Soak it all in and try to get as much sleep as possible.
What are you looking forward to the most on this trip?
Visiting the museums/famous tourist attractions in Washington and of course interacting with our insurance colleagues in both Washington & San Francisco.
Tell us something fun about yourself that most people don’t know?
I used to be a star soccer player in my day, nicknamed Shakes and the name stuck with me until today with those that grew up with me.
What is the one thing that you cannot travel without?
My cellphone, which is my pathfinder.
If you could live in any other country where would you live?
Lesotho, which is literally in our backyard – people are so down to earth and make do with what they have and still manage to live a happy life. My wife, however, would let us pack our bags to England’ countryside, which she loves with the quality of life and beautiful scenery it offers.
What country has the best food?
SA no doubt. I love my traditional dishes – tribe, oven bread, bunny chow, potjie or koeksisters – only made in SA with interesting stories as to how it came about.
What is your least favourite thing about travelling?
Checking in of luggage. If I had my way, it would be me, my cell and bag pack only.
How will u be putting the SA in the USA?
I am an African at heart and wherever I go carries the hopes and aspirations of an entire continent with me.
