Q. Where would you like to go that you have never been to before?
Q. When you go away, what are some of your must-have items?
A. A toothbrush, my journal, my camera and an old pair of jeans.
Q. What would be your dream trip?
A. A group of my closest friends on a Caribbean beach under a billion stars.
Q. What is your guilty pleasure when you're on the road?
A. I spend a lot of time taking photos and videos of everything around me. I'm working on dropping my phone and just being present.
Q. What kind of research do you do before you go away on a trip?
A. I see who I may know in the area, not much else. I like to arrive and explore. Getting lost is my favorite.
Q. What is your best and/or worst vacation memory?
A. Worst vacation: We were staying in Morocco, in Ouarzazate, and I snuck out to hang out with my friends. I fell into a pool, without my floaties, and almost drowned. Thank the universe my mom happened to jog by. Best memory: Holiday time in Vail, Colorado.
