NEVER TRAVEL WITHOUT: An open mind and making sure you are inquisitive about the destination you are exploring. And, of course, sunglasses.
IN MY SUITCASE: A small journal (to record all of the day to day activities that made my trip so special), great walking shoes, and my cell phone charger (to make sure my phone doesn’t die while I document my fantastic vacation)
TOP TRAVEL MEMORY: In 2019, I had the great joy to get to experience Kenya, Tanzania and Dubai. I spent a night in Dubai and as Emirates gave me a stopover hotel, I barely slept, I explored the Souks and seeing the fantastic sights Dubai had to offer. Then the next morning I flew to Nairobi and my safari began. Getting to experience the majestic animals in their natural habitat was something I will never forget. Falling asleep to the sounds of hippos outside your room, having your morning coffee on the truck while you are in the middle of over 30 giraffes. Watching a cheetah hunt while sitting on the runway of your bush camp. This trip was beyond incredible and Kenya and Tanzania will always have a place in my heart.
BEST FOOD FIND: While in Maui, on the road to Hana, there is a small one-window restaurant that serves teriyaki at the black sand beach and it is mouthwatering. Especially when looking at the restaurant, it doesn’t look like it would be safe let alone delicious but time and time again, it blows me away!
ON MY BUCKET LIST: Exploring New Zealand from top to bottom, a circumnavigation cruise of Iceland, a Hurtigruten cruise on the coastline of Norway stopping in Trondheim to see my families homestead, and a foodie tour of Italy with some incredible cooking lessons in the country with some incredible wine.
