No matter where I am traveling, my first priority is finding the best food. I love trying local specialties and eating new things. My favorite magazine is Bon Appetit. Otherwise, I want to be on foot and outdoors as much as possible, with a camera and a sense of adventure to get me on my way. I enjoy snowshoeing, snowboarding, hiking, biking and running.
One of my top trips was hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The immense beauty and landscape was breathtaking and the physical challenge was exhilarating. I took the trip with one my best friends and met some amazing people along the way.
I like to avoid crowds if possible, but there are still tourist attractions that I want to visit. I appreciate the places that are local, off the beaten path or quirky. I like meeting other people from around the world when I travel. I enjoy museums, cafes, and strolls if I'm in a city. Even when I am not traveling, I am a runner, a hiker and a biker, so I enjoy being active and challenging myself when I travel too.
