Tim Nicolle, Founder and CEO, PrimaDollar considers his most memorable trip to be one from 1985. A visit to the Thai side of the golden triangle. He told ET Panache, "I travelled extensively as a student with no money on very long trips through South East Asia, South America, and the Middle East. I went hitchhiking, by buses, trains - whatever."

The UK-based online trade financier company boss shares that Laos was just a jungle at that time. "Seeing the full moon rise over Laos across the Mekong river from the Thai side of the golden triangle was my most memorable trip. There were no lights at all – so no light pollution. If you can imagine sitting in Chiang Rai looking East over the Mekong river and seeing pitch black turn red then gold then silver as a full moon rises - with the reflections on the Mekong River over the very dark green of the jungle – you’ve got it," he said.

Nicolle puts Mars on his bucket list and hopes to visit it someday. "Although without having to spend all those boring hours getting there, and then also being able to come back. I would definitely like to see the red planet," he signed off saying.
