As someone who loves travel and tech, Mieke has her “top three” favorites while on the go
1. Her travel is incomplete without her AirPod, Netflix and Spotify!
2. Her bucket list includes exploring Bhutan with friends which she believes will up her GNP – Gross National Happiness and traversing the Great Wall of China with her two kids!
3. Her mantra is travelling light but with maximum volume - hand carry only!
