Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?
A. Taiwan. Most of my family is there. I can’t rave enough about the delectable food, night life and beautiful hiking trails. Transportation is super convenient there as well. When you arrive at Taoyuan International Airport, buy a prepaid SIM card before you leave the airport. They have SIM card package options depending on the length of your stay. (I would recommend that you) make sure to bring a good pair of walking shoes, get a Mass Rapid Transit pass, go eat, drink boba milk tea and explore. Night markets are a must!
Q. What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?
A. I like to see travel as a way to learn, understand, gain a new mindset and see things from a different perspective through the people, food, music and culture I encounter. We are all the same, just from different places with different experiences. It humbles and inspires me.
Q. If you could only pick one place to eat, which would you choose: a casual meal at a street cart or food truck or fine dining at a nice restaurant?
A. Fine dining. Nothing against street carts or food trucks – they’re yummy, too – but fine dining to me is eating and experiencing art.
Q. Where is the most romantic destination?
A. Santorini (Greece), Blue Lagoon (Iceland), Paris, Maldives, Bali.
Q. Do you speak any foreign languages? And in the same train of thought, do you pick up new languages easily?
