Q: This pandemic has made everyone think differently about how we spend our vacation time. What have you been up to?

A: Since the pandemic started, my family and I have taken a different approach to having fun. We’ve started taking outdoor walks at the park nearby, short trips to the beach and hiking. Lately, what I’ve learned through these times is that what you do with your time is what matters most. You don’t have to be super busy all the time, but as long as you are happy with what you’re doing, nothing else should matter as long as no one is being harmed. Spending time with those who show you the same love back matters the most.

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?

A: I immediately fell in love with Vancouver’s cold weather and friendly people. I loved that you were able to be in a city and nature whenever you wanted. Travel by boat or plane to Vancouver Island, visit Victoria Island and many other great sites there.

Q: Where do you often visit?


A: I have family in Arizona, so we visit a few times a year, except for 2020. Another is Las Vegas. It is so close that we visit many times each year and definitely go on the roller coaster rides and zipline.

Q: What was the first trip you took?

A: Flying into Atlanta to shoot “Mann and Wife.” I was able to experience a plane for the first time in first class.
