  • Why do you travel?

    To clear my mind, expand my horizons, and break up the monotony of life.

  • What’s one thing you never travel without?

    Some reading material and something to write on.

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

    Grab a coffee and get hold of a local paper to find out the goings-on about town.

  • Do you like traveling solo?

    Yes! It’s the best way to meet new people and stumble into an adventure.

  • Train, plane, or ship?

    Trains are romantic.

  • Carry-on or checked?

    Definitely carry-on. I’ve recently discovered how much time this cuts out of your travels, especially now that you can check in for flights and access your boarding pass from your phone. You’d be surprised what can fit in the overhead compartment.

  • What was your worst travel experience?

    Atlantic City.

  • What’s on your travel bucket list?

    The Hobbiton movie set in New Zealand.

  • What’s currently on your airplane playlist?

    “Le Mal Du Pays” by Manno Charlemagne.

  • What's your first travel memory?

    Losing (and finding) my prized stuffed animals—two small teddy bears who happened to also be siblings—during a family trip to Cape Cod.
