Celebrity Travel: Go Away With Stephen Marley

By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A. India. Like Jamaica, the people seem to have a lot of hope, vibrancy and rich colorful culture, despite any turmoil that they may have faced. I would love to visit.

Q. When you go away, what are some of your must-have items?

A. My guitar. I don't have to hook up to a sound system and can just jam out when I feel inspired.

Q. What would be your dream trip?

A. A trip around the world.

Q. What is your guilty pleasure when you're on the road?


A. Because I am moving around a lot on tour, sometimes I just want to decompress and just go to the movies.

Q. What kind of research do you do before you go away on a trip?

A. I always check out the culture. I think it is important to know how the people live, their customs and ways. You want to show respect in the country you visit.
