What aspect of travel do you enjoy the most?

Travel helps you appreciate your life. When things get crazy, it can be easy to lose sight of what you have. When you explore new places you get a fresh appreciation for your hometown, your country and your life. You’ll see that there really is no place like home!

What is one thing you would never travel without?

Packing cubes – they keep your personal things organized and easy to locate, especially when you are moving from hotel to hotel. Plus, they help you use the precious space inside your suitcase more effectively.

What has been your most life-changing travel experience?

When I traveled to Bali – where else can you see in one place: rolling green hills, beautiful coastlines, rice fields, volcanic mountains and sandy beaches. Truly spectacular and made me realize how travel can change your appreciation for everything.

What has traveling taught you about yourself?

Travel has taught me confidence and independence. I think it really boosted my self-awareness and problem-solving skills. I’ve learned how to navigate a foreign country, make new friends from all over the world and overcome difficult situations.

What is your favorite destination, and why?

Anywhere that has beauty, history, architecture, food, and of course, wine!
