I would be a veterinarian or a psychologist.
I always take a little nap.
One of my favourite dishes is celery with oranges, based on my mother’s recipe.
As a CD, I’d pack Beethoven’s piano sonatas, played by András Schiff. As a book, I’d take “Don Quixote” by Miguel de Cervantes. (Someone probably already brought Daniel Defoe’s “Robinson Crusoe” and left it there!) And as an object, I’d bring a CD player so that I don't just have to look at the Beethoven CDs, but can listen to them as well.
