Travelling and adventure is a form of freedom for me. I love experiencing new things, new places and meeting new people. I love the excitement that discovering new places I’ve never before brought. It is such a privilege to be able to travel and go on adventures and I want to be able to experience life to the fullest!
What kind of adventures do you look for when you travel?
I like to switch it up between leisure and relaxation travel and adventure travel. I enjoy travelling abroad but lately have been exploring my home state of California.
What’s your go-to travel hack?
Before booking a hotel through a 3rd party website (booking or Expedia etc) check on the hotels’ actual website and more often than not, they’ll have a lower price listed. 3rd party sites like booking or Expedia charge businesses 15-18% for every reservation, so some hotels will raise their prices on 3rd party sites to compensate for these websites taking such a large chunk of money.
Got any gear you can’t travel without?
Anker portable phone charger
What destination are you eager to go back to?
France! I feel so at home there. I miss it
How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?
Just always be aware of your surroundings. I’m always checking behind my shoulder when walking places, making sure no one is following me out of stores, before going out I see what I have on me that could potentially be used as a weapon. Always make reservations for 2 so it’s not obvious you are alone
What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?
By asking locals!! Ask shop owners, waiters/waitresses for their recommendations. before I go places I always google “unique things to do in *insert city you are visiting* here
What’s your favourite word in another language?
Pamplemousse (French for grapefruit) it’s so cute & quirky
When and where are you next travelling?
Staying local for now, I’ll be going to Lake Tahoe in California this fall. Cannot wait to get back to international travel, first place I want to go in Iceland!
