1. What 5 things do you always have in your carryon?
Pashmina, iPad, Camera, Chargers, tissues and a book about my destination
2. If you could leave today and go anywhere, where would you go?
My passion for Africa is never ending. I love being on safari, sleeping in a tent and listening to the African night sounds. It is so special to sit and watch a lion or cheetah mama with her babies or watch an elephant take a bath or see a Giraffe run. The wildlife interactions are fantastic and the landscapes are breathtaking. I have covered 7 countries so far and would go back to any of them. Seeing the gorillas will be next!
3. What is your travel motto?
Create memories through travel with your family …
Unplug, shut down, disconnect, and be in the moment!
4. Number of countries you’ve visited?
I just returned from Ireland, #39.
5. What is your travel extravagance?
Nothing is like coming back after a full day of active sightseeing and being pampered in a spa.
Iceland’s Blue Lagoon hot baths and silica mud is heavenly. In Pamukkale, Turkey the massage was an invigorating deep tissue. At Costa Rica’s Tabacon Resort, I had a wonderful volcanic mud facial. I loved the hot stones at Enchantment in Sedona. And the sauna and indoor pool at Victoria Jungfrau spa in Interlaken was magnificent.
6. What has been the most inspirational destination?
I have made it a point to try to visit school children with my son as we have traveled around the world.
7. Where are you headed next?
I am headed to the Brownell Company Meeting in Atlanta in November and the to San Francisco for Thanksgiving to celebrate my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary.
