What aspect of travel do you enjoy the most?

I am passionate about blending in with the local people, getting off the beaten path, and finding their favorite places for entertainment and to dine. I also thoroughly enjoy the research and planning of a trip. Choosing a destination, accommodations, transportation, activities are all so exciting to me.

What is one thing you would never travel without?

My Bose speaker! I love music and need it with me whether in my hotel room or on a beach. I also don’t leave home without my little travel candle. It is comforting and also helps personalize a hotel room.

What has been your most life-changing travel experience?

There have been many, from a 3-hour flight from NYC to London on the Concorde, cruising the Mediterranean on the QE2, to most recently taking a dreamy wellness trip to a magnificent luxury villa in Tuscany. But without a doubt the most lifechanging was my numerous trips to a Russian orphanage to adopt two of my three daughters. I learned so much about myself spending time with the staff and children there. It’s not so much about the luxurious accommodations, but the relationships in our lives.

What has traveling taught you about yourself?

I can’t control everything! Even the best laid plans can change in a minute, and there are things that will happen when traveling that weren’t part of the schedule. I have learned to take a deep breathe, be understanding that things can and will happen, and accept what I can and can’t do about it. I have learned to be flexible and patient.

What is your favorite destination, and why?

I have always considered myself a beach person, but after my most recent trip to Tuscany, Italy, I have moved that to the top of the list. The breathtaking scenery, the beauty of the lifestyle, and the delicious food and wine can’t be beat!
