Q. What do you recommend people check out in New York?

A. Go to Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side. Best cookies I have ever had in my life! Second, I would tell them to go visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), which has a beautiful collection that is unforgettable. New York City is my favorite now, but it is likely bound to change as I travel more.

Q. What was the first trip you took as a child? And did you love it ... or not so much?

A. I think my first trip I took as a child was to New Orleans, Louisiana. When I was there, I hated it. As my mom describes it, I was sick with an ear infection. How could you not hate that? But I recently went back and loved it. It is truly an amazing town full of good food and the best jazz.

Q. What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?


A. Walking from destination to destination is better than taking transportation, because while you are walking you can discover more interesting spots you would like to try.

Q. Where are your favorite weekend getaways?

A. Mammoth Ski Resort. I love the snow and skiing, even though I'm a novice. I always love the chance to get better and go on harder runs, while my friends and family laugh at my falling.

Q. Where would you like to go that you have never been to before?
