Celebrity Travel: Go Away With Martin Garrix
Voted by fans as DJ Mag's No. 1 DJ in the world, Martin Garrix was also handpicked last summer to be the face of Armani Exchange. Some of his collaborations include "Scared to Be Lonely" with Dua Lipa and "So Far Away" with David Guetta. Asked what he enjoys most about working with other artists, Garrix, 21, said, "I love to see how everyone works with music in a different way. I think for every artist, it's interesting to see how someone else is working. Lana Del Rey is still on my wish list for collaborations and I would love to go into the studio with Shawn Mendes."

Q. Where is home?
A. Home is Amsterdam, (where) I have an apartment. And my family lives close to Amsterdam. But I'm touring most of the time and don't stay in one place very long.
Q. What would be your dream trip?
A. Something adventurous would be cool. I've once climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, so I'm definitely in for something like that. But a good trip would also include my family and friends and just hanging out together.
Q. What are your favorite restaurants?
A. Since I'm from Amsterdam, I will give you some tips there. My favorite restaurants in Amsterdam are The Duchess (http://the-duchess.com) and FIKO Amsterdam (http://www.fikoamsterdam.com). FIKO Amsterdam has the best pizza and pasta. At The Duchess, you have to order the Beef Wellington!
Q. Where was the first place you traveled to for work?
A. My first show outside of the Netherlands was on Ibiza. It was in a small club with 15 people on the dance floor, but it was such an amazing experience!
