Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?

A. I love traveling to new places around the world, but I always like going to our cabin in Invermere (British Columbia). I love boating, surfing and just hanging out with my family and friends. Get out on the lake and enjoy the water. It is a glacier-fed lake, so is super clear and refreshing.

Q. What untapped destination should people know about?

A. Canada in general is a beautiful country. There are so many mountains and (still) so many things close to Calgary that I have not seen.

Q. What was the first trip you took as a child?


A. I traveled so much as a child. When I was four, we moved to the Oman in the Middle East. We lived there for three years and I got to explore Oman, as well as many places around there. We went to Dubai in the UAE, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Egypt and then explored a lot of countries in Europe.

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

A. Be openminded and take everything in. Cultures are all so diverse and different and you can learn so much from the people.

Q. If you could only pick one place to eat, would you choose a casual meal at a street cart or a food truck or fine dining at a nice restaurant?
