Frequent Flyer: Tom Griffith

Tom Griffith, co-founder of Emma & Tom's Australian-owned natural wellbeing drinks and snacks.


A good mate of mine held a four-day 40th birthday party at the Hotel Splendido in Portofino. It was beautiful to stay in a majestic balconied room looking over the little harbour and Mediterranean Sea.


I have flown with my two young daughters on a weekly basis since they were one and three years old, not always the most relaxing experience. After hundreds of flights, I have to say that Virgin Australia have been exceptionally strong performers, right down to Mark, one of the stewards, blowing up their blue rubber latex gloves and making the girls an elephant each. They still talk about it. Internationally, I am most happy with Singapore business class.


The Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort in Fiji is an hour's flight from Nadi. It's very private, the team who run it are faultless, all the fruit and vegetables are grown organically on the island and fish are caught on the reef. There are no telephones or television.


I have had a long relationship with Tumi, in almost every configuration possible. I love their products for their durability and simplicity.



Running gear, every single time. I have loved running around the streets of Paris, along the canals in Amsterdam, the Bund in Shanghai, in the hills surrounding Cape Town and around Stanley Park in Vancouver. You immediately feel like a local, scope out the city and shed any lingering jet lag.


I lived in Whistler for a couple of seasons before we launched Emma & Tom's. I would love to take my partner high-altitude big-mountain skiing.
