Celebrity Travel: Go Away With Malcolm David Kelley
A. After traveling, you have a much greater respect for other cultures.
Q. Have you traveled to a place that stood out so much that you felt compelled to incorporate it into your work?
A. I frequently reflect on my travels to Malaysia. It is an amazing place to visit, highlighted by the beautiful scenery and culture. However, I also saw a lot of poverty there, which truly humbled me. When faced with obstacles in my own life, I remain grateful, because hardships in the U.S. are usually minor compared to those of so many different countries.
Q. Where are your favorite weekend getaways?
A. Vegas is always a nice getaway and it is a quick, four-hour drive. But, lately, I've been traveling so much that some weekends my own home is the best getaway. There's truth in the saying, there's no place like home.
Q. Where is the most romantic destination?
A. I took my girlfriend to Hawaii, which is a place that never fails to be romantic. Also, Martha's Vineyard can do no wrong!
Q. What are your five favorite cities?
A. L.A., New York City, Sydney, Las Vegas and Kailua.
