I feel so safe when I travel with RASK. They know my taste and my requirements so well by now - and in the cities where I go on a regular basis they even know which rooms and suites in certain hotels I prefer. RASK is like my really good friend I take on all my trips! They also keep an eye out for me for new inspiring hotels and destinations they think I should visit, and they never recommend anything they have not tried and tested themselves. We simply share the same values!Suitcase Staple
I never travel light - I simply don’t have that talent, and I can never decide what I want to wear until I wake up in the morning. The result is too many shoes and too much clothes that I often don’t even get to wear. My phone is my most important travel companion as it functions as my “office” and I love to share my visual inspiration on Instagram.Travel Favourites
I go to Paris, New York and London a lot and occasionally Milan. London for me is still the most inspiring place on earth – I love it there. Some of my favourite hotels are there. Apart from that I love to go to Berlin for weekend breaks - and summers just seem to be better when I go to Ibiza or Mykonos.Guilty Pleasures
Nothing beats good room service in a great hotel – preferably in a very fluffy bathrobe and soft slippers. And I am such a hotel freak. Quite often, a certain hotel, rather than the destination, will determine where I go to relax or indulge.
Malene BirgerFounder and Creative Director of BIRGER1962From
LondonArguably one of the best ever Danish fashion designers, Malene Birger is definitely the best known. Birger, originally of the eponymous fashion label, By Malene Birger, founded in 2003, as well as DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, founded in 1997, now focuses primarily on her fashion label A'JOURNEY which channels her passion for travel and creativity. Malene is based in London, is an avid RASK Traveller, and has journeyed to all corners of the world with us.
I have a habit of packing way too much including loads of shoes, jewellery and bags.... but I always make sure I have a photo of my husband to put on my nightstand. I always pack gym clothes, too.Travel Favourites
LA, Oman & Greece are places I visit again and againGuilty Pleasures
Although I love travelling for relaxation, I always end up being way too busy exploring museums, markets and to experience the culture and its people. And even so, I often feel that I could've done more, seen more - when I really should've been lazing by the sea with a book.
Anthony AconisAuthor, Lecturer and Founder of Fireball Advertising AgencyFrom
Copenhagen"I’m a foodie, hotel fanatic and travel junkie. I get on a plane whenever I can. With work. In my off time. Alone. With friends. RASK is my constant travel companion making sure that I make the most out of my miles."

Silvia PisciLuxury travel representation - www.silviapisci.comFrom
ItalyPreviously an Associate Director at RASK Travel, with a prior background in PR, Silvia Pisci has spent the past five years travelling around the globe “in the name of luxury travel”. Her eye for detail and personal, in-depth knowledge of luxury hotels worldwide, is quite remarkable. Her passion for seeking the finest travel experiences is what brought her to currently work in luxury travel representation.
Working at RASK, you learn on a daily basis what excellence and attention to detail truly means. I think that the ultimate luxury a globetrotter can (and should) afford is a trusted travel designer, who understands their specific tastes, personal habits, and even peculiarities.Suitcase Staple
My sleeping mask, a bathing suit and a credit card to buy all the fundamentals I always forget at homeTravel Favourites
Paris, once every year with my best travel companion Miriam Braun. Road trips through Italy are another favourite, but if I can venture away from Europe, South America is where I would always go back to.Guilty Pleasures
A bubbly bath with a bubbly glass, and a delivery of Asian food to be enjoyed in my hotel room (or bed…)!
