Celebrity Travel: Go away with Aria Brooks

Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A: The first trip I have memory of was when my family went to Florida for my sister's birthday. We went to Disney World and the Crayola Experience in Orlando. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait to go back. Disney World is one of my favorite places to go because it has something for everyone, and it is an amazing overall experience. That was my first time at the Crayola Experience, and it was really fun.

Q: What are your five favorite cities?

A: Orlando, New York City, Hollywood, Malibu and Atlanta. Orlando is so fun to me because of Disney World. New York City and Hollywood are busy and historical cities, that I love to visit. I find something new every time I go. I've only been to Malibu once, but I loved the weather, the beach and the views. Lastly, Atlanta will always be home for me, no matter how much I travel.

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

A: Paris someday. There are so many sights and experiences that interest me. My main reason for wanting to go to Paris is for the food. I really want to try French cuisine and desserts straight from France.

Q: When you go away, what are some of your must-have items?

A: I definitely need my phone and my charger. My AirPods as a must have. I am always listening to music or watching something. My skin-care products are also a necessity because I need to properly clean my face twice a day. It is relaxing and comforting to do my skincare routine at the end of a long day.

Q: What would be your dream trip?


A: (It’s) still a Disney Cruise. I've been wanting to go on one for six years. I’ve had my eye on the seven-night Western Caribbean Cruises. It would go to Mexico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Castaway Cay (Disney's private island in the Bahamas).

Q: What is your guilty pleasure when you're on the road?

A: Nutella. I love Nutella so much. I could put it on everything and enjoy it. I eat it on fruit, pretzels, toast, waffles and even by the spoonful. I could eat an entire jar if someone didn't stop me.
