Vijender Singh, Indian Olympic Medalist boxer shares his latest holiday experience and answers some rapid fire questions for us.
I last holidayed in New York. It is very beautiful and perfect holiday destination and I was completely rejuvenated. My wife loved shopping there. The people were very warm and I liked driving in the city, courtesy the great roads. I also travelled to Boston and Florida where I made friends and played a little basketball with kids.
I like my butter chicken and naan and traditional home-cooked food. But since I can’t get all of it during my foreign trips, I enjoy having chicken in some form or the other.
We exchanged gifts for our anniversary, and my wife bought me an Ipad and I bought her a Cartier watch.
I have been training these days, so, I do not have much time to indulge in any other sport but boxing . But I tried zorbing recently and it was a lot of fun. I was quite anxious before trying it but it turned out to be a piece of cake!
I’m currently listening to the tracks by Honey Singh.

Moment of peace
My most peaceful holiday was spent at my village. I visited my school and caught up with my friends; it was a wonderful break from my rigorous training schedule. It was thoroughly nostalgic.
I would love to visit Spain and see the beauty of the Roman architecture in the forts and structures.
