Celebrity Travel: Go away with Amber Nash
Comedian Amber Nash said people often recognize her voice before her face. The Atlanta-based actress is best known for voicing Pam Poovey on the long-running animated FXX series “Archer.” Based out of Atlanta, Nash said she looks forward to being able to tour again. “My first year performing in Germany, I found out very quickly that German audiences are very different from American audiences,” said Nash, 43. “They do not make a peep the whole show. They quietly take it in. As a comedian, this is very unsettling. You assume that you are bombing and that they hate you, but then when the show is over, they go crazy! They clap for what feels like 20 minutes!”
Q: What would be your dream trip?
A: I’d love to spend a month in Thailand. We had a trip scheduled for 2020, but that’s not happening. I want to spend time at an elephant sanctuary and on the beach. It’s incredibly affordable once you get there.
Q: Where is the most romantic destination?
A: Havana! My husband and I went there for our honeymoon. He’s Canadian, so we flew in from Toronto. It’s such an interesting place. The people as so warm and the old cars are fantastic. It’s a very special place. Dancing and rum? You can’t go wrong.
Q: If you've ever gone away for the holidays, which was the best trip?
A: Every other year we spend Christmas in Edmonton. Since I’m from Georgia, it’s a very different experience in regards to weather. I had very few white Christmases growing up, but you can guarantee one in Edmonton. It’s beautiful and everything is covered in snow. Jasper is a mountain town in Alberta. It’s a wonderland. We’ve been there a few times because (my husband) Kevin’s brother lives there. (We go on) ice hikes, sleigh rides on a frozen lake, ice skating. … They’ve got it all.
Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?
A: I’ve been very lucky to get to travel to so many places. I very much love New Orleans. My husband and I go at least once a year. It’s a seven-hour drive from Atlanta. It’s all about the senses. The food is insane! Eat lots of wonderful food. And drinks! There are parades literally on every street all the time and music everywhere, every bar and street corner. There is so much to see walking around, the history and architecture and the vampires. I highly recommend the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum and a ghost tour. I also love Oslo, Norway, and have been there many times. The people are beautiful. The land is beautiful. The bus takes you everywhere, even from the center of the city to a ski hill. I highly recommend the Viking Ship Museum. Don’t be alarmed if a mom leaves her baby in a carriage outside on the sidewalk when she pops into a store. Seriously, everyone does it. It’s an extremely safe place.
