Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?
A. Cape Cod, especially Dennis Port. My family has been going there for years and it's a less populated area on Cape Cod in the summer than some of the bigger towns.
Q. Where are your favorite weekend getaways?
A. Living in Brooklyn, my favorite weekend getaways usually involve a lot of open space and nature. Getting to a beach in Long Island and renting a B&B, Bear Mountain, Woodstock, Beacon. Puerto Rico is a great one, too. It's not that long of a flight and the Puerto Rican culture is so rich.
Q. What was the first trip you took as a child?
A. The first trip I remember was to Walt Disney World in Florida. I remember loving the rides, but I got sun poisoning on my face. My face swelled up and was really itchy. My family had to bring me to the hospital and I felt like I ruined the trip.
Q. What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?
A. Traveling has taught me that you can live your life however you want to live it. There is probably somebody somewhere with the lifestyle you want. The only difference is they did it. Everybody has a story and a wish.
Q. Where have you traveled to that most reminded you of home?
