Where have you just been?


Where are you going next?


What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?

The Sacred Valley in Peru

What is the best meal you’ve had while traveling?

Oh man – I’ve had SOO many amazing meals while traveling. I’d say one of the most interesting meals was Haggis in Scotland – surprisingly, it tasted like Shepherd’s Pie. If you can get the idea of it out of your head – it’s actually pretty good.

Check a bag or carry on?

Depends on the length of the trip – though I usually check a bag – I’m too indecisive with my outfits.

Favorite activity while traveling:

Finding the best vantage point for photos, getting into the local scene and really experiencing the destination, and also eating. I love good food – I’m not super adventurous with food, but if there is something specific to the destination, I’m usually willing to give it a go.

What is your travel uniform?

Black perforated leather slip-on Vans, nice leggings, and a loose blouse. The best part is the outfit is pretty transitional – it doesn’t wrinkle, the shoes are sturdy and comfy for walking in the airport, but it is still cute and put together so you can jump off of the plane ready to go!

Best airport advice:

This is more of pre-airport advice- get Global Entry!! It saves so much time in security lines, so you don’t have to arrive quite as early, which means more time to enjoy the destination!

3 items you won’t travel without:

  1. iPhone
  2. Hair straightener
  3. Passport
