Last journey...

CUBA! I had the pleasure of spending 4 nights in Cuba (3 nights Havana & 1 night Vinales) with 20 of my closes friends in October. It was such an amazing trip - the people, music, sights, and nightlife were all spectacular! I cannot wait to go back one day.

My favorite travel experience or place I’ve been

The list is long but I think I’d rather be in the bush on safari in Botswana than anywhere else in the world.

I fell in love with travel...

When I went on my first safari at the age of 6. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget and no matter how many times I go back it will never be replicated…

I never get on a plane without...

Travel is like hot sauce; once you’ve had it, life seems bland without it.

Dream Trip / Bucket List

The more I travel the longer my list gets, but if I had to pick one I’d say Australia.

I’ve talked about wanting to go to Australia since I was in elementary school but my travels have not yet taken me there.
