For Cooke, managing director of Konica Minolta Australia and a meditation practitioner for 46 years, travel is about “immersing myself in different cultures, exploring ancient civilisations and having more time for my daily meditation practice”. Cambodia is a favourite destination, particularly its 12th-century jewel, Angkor Wat. “A lot of people go to the main temple, spend an hour or two and think they’ve seen it. But it’s a 160-hectare complex with multiple temples. I’ve been to seven or eight of them but I feel I’ve only scratched the surface. My favourite experience is arriving before dawn, meditating then opening my eyes to the sun rising above the temples."
