What’s the best trip Fabio Viviani has ever taken?
The best trip I’ve ever taken was to Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. That trip was really great because that was the first vacation that I had taken — and it lasted about a month — after seven and a half years. Because of business reasons, I couldn’t take a single day off. I spent seven and a half years without taking a vacation, besides when the restaurant was closed. In that time frame, I was hospitalized twice for exhaustion. So that trip was my first real vacation. I got lost in the middle of an island and slept overnight there because the camping van that was taking us back to the hotel left; they came and picked me up the next day. I kind of did almost 24 hours like a castaway, but we had camping supplies so I was like, “Whatever, they’ll come back tomorrow.”
