Celebrity Travel: Go away with Georges St-Pierre

Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A: Montréal, Miami, New York, Paris, Québec.

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

A: Egypt to see the Great Sphinx of Giza and the pyramids. Turkey to see the Göbekli Tepe.

Peru to see the Machu Picchu architecture.

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

A: I check for the best beaches, hotels, restaurants, archaeological and paleontological sites.

Q: Do you speak any foreign languages?


A: French is my native tongue, I speak English – not perfectly, but it’s getting better, a little bit of Portuguese and I can understand pretty good Spanish. When you speak a Latin language, it is easier to pick up the other ones, because it’s all similar.

Q: Where have you traveled to that most reminded you of home?

A: Stockholm, Sweden, because of the climate and people’s mentality.
