Where was the first place that you traveled that made you think WOW—travel is amazing (think history book come to life or …..)
Every place wows me in some way or another. The first place I was ever wowed was Austria (at sixteen,) and the most life-changing was my first solo trip — in Nepal.
If you had unlimited resources, where would you go and what would you do?
I would do an around-the-world trip that combined destinations old and new, and all on the same aircraft. I’m not a luxury traveler per se, but I’m thinking like the Four Seasons jet if we’re really talking unlimited. (A girl can dream!)
What were you afraid to do and how did you find the courage to overcome it?
I was afraid to leave everything in my life behind and travel the world for a year. I overcame the fear by…doing it.
I’m terrified of heights and was afraid to bungy jump in New Zealand. I overcame the fear by…doing it.
I was afraid to travel solo as a woman in India. I overcame the fear by…doing it.
What apps do you use regularly that make your life easier?
I love Trello, Evernote, 30/30, Instagram, Gogobot, and of course, Google Maps.
What place do you wish more people have seen?
Best advice you have been given and by whom?
I seek advice and wisdom constantly from the written word, which usually comes in the form of a particularly thought-provoking quote.
There is so much valuable wisdom in the world but for me it always boils down to some form of: “Never settle.” (Which is really, respect yourself and respect others.)
When were you surprised by the kindness of strangers on a trip?
Countless times. I am surprised by the kindness of strangers on every single trip I take. Travel consistently renews my faith in humanity for this reason.
What inspired you to travel for extended periods of time or live in a new country?
Wanting to find my authentic self and wanting to live with no regrets.
