Q&A

  • Why do you travel?

    Traveling makes us better humans! Plus the world is so beautiful and wonderful, why not travel? Also, ahem, food.

  • What’s one thing you never travel without?

    Vitamin B patches. They’re an instant pick-me-up that save me from jetlag, early wake-up calls (after very late nights).

  • What’s the first thing you do when you arrive in a new place?

    Find out the WiFi password...don’t judge me!

  • Where did you have your most unforgettable meal?

    Antica Osteria Rugantino, the cacio e pepe was so good I temporarily left my body and watched me eat it from above.

  • What’s on your travel bucket list?

    I’d love to backpack through Patagonia, swim in Bali, eat anything in Romania, and do karaoke in Tokyo!

  • What’s currently on your airplane playlist?

    Lots of fun podcasts including Why Won’t You Date Me, You’re Wrong About and Who? Weekly.

  • If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

    Rome!

  • What is your favorite time of year to travel?

    Fall! A. It makes me feel like a Nancy Meyers heroine and B. There’s generally less crowds and things are usually cheaper.

  • What items do you always try to bring back as souvenirs?

    I have a big collection of matchbooks from all over, so I always try to grab those from bars and restaurants when I can.

What is it about the Real Housewives franchise?
