Celebrity Travel: Go Away With Dhani Jones

By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A. Thai street food is ridiculously good. The seafood in New Zealand is amazing. And in New York, you can get a little bit of everything, so that's never a bad place to eat. I've had at least one good meal in every place that I've visited. In Bassano del Grappa (Italy), I had a piece of steak that you could cut with a spoon. It was the best steak in the world.

Q. Can you share some of your memories from your football years?

A. I remember playing some great games at Soldier Field. I think I picked off your quarterback a couple times. (Laughs) Soldier Field is one of those iconic places. Chicago Bears fans have always been great to me. And Chicago is such a great place to play. It's also a great food city. I've never had a bad meal there.

Q. Which location for "Adventure Capitalists" stands out?

A. We were in the Canadian Rockies, which was phenomenal. That's where Leonardo DiCaprio filmed "The Revenant." The mountains were spectacular and the setting was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been in my life. I would go back one day just to spend some time walking around and soaking it all in. One thing that's so great about our show is that there is no limit to where we can go; people with great ideas live all over the world. I'm hoping that we get the chance to showcase more of their inventions.

Q. What is on your travel bucket list?

A. There are a lot of places I'd like to go to for the show and personally. Yellowstone would be amazing. Wyoming would be fun. The Catskills would also be phenomenal. I'd like to go into the Delta region. New Orleans. Mississippi. Internationally, I would like to visit Namibia. I could talk to you for hours about all the places I'd want to get to. I know I am lucky to have traveled so much already.
