How many countries have you visited?

Around 17 give or take

What is your favorite place you’ve traveled to so far and why?

Guatemala! People are so welcoming, the food is amazing, and it’s very easy to travel to and move around.

Where are you traveling this September?

I’ll be in Tuscany for a friend’s wedding, and will take a few days after to visit Mykonos.

Wow, how do you feel about traveling for a wedding? Have you ever traveled for a wedding before?

My first time traveling to Spain was actually to go to a friend’s wedding, I’ve been a big fan of destination weddings ever since. I also recently spent a couple of days in New York for a close friend’s wedding.

Where is the best lgbtq+-friendly destination you’ve been to? Why?

New York and Amsterdam have a special place in my heart, maybe I’m a little biased, but have always felt very welcomed in both places. The Amsterdam Pride parade is one of the best things I’ve experienced.

What are other destinations would recommend to folks looking for lgbtq+-friendly fun?

Spain, especially Barcelona, is very liberal. Sitges, just a few minutes outside of Barcelona is one of the best LGBTQ+ destinations in Europe.

Some people like to plan everything down to the tiniest detail when they travel, and some prefer to be completely spontaneous. Where do you fall on the spectrum?

I like to have a list of things I would like to do, but then see where day takes me. I usually like to walk to most places when I’m traveling and explore the cities, I’ve found some of the best restaurants this way.

What is your biggest piece of advice for someone looking to plan a comfortable, budget vacation?

Plan ahead! Tickets and reservations for popular places can get quite pricey the closer you get to the dates.

What kind of trip/destination would you recommend for someone who has never traveled outside the US?

Travel with friends, maybe someone who has gone to that destination before. Places you can move around walking, or where they speak English.

What’s the longest trip you’ve ever taken?

Around 2 weeks to Guatemala and Curacao for work, it was incredible, but not the best for sightseeing.

The shortest?

I went to Rome for only 8 hours, managed to do most of the touristy things, and had a blast

What’s the first thing that goes in your suitcase when you start packing?

My headphones, there’s nothing worse than a long flight with nothing to watch or listen to.

Which single discovery impacted how you travel the most?

Learning a few words in the native language will make people more willing to help.

What’s a popular travel trend that you despise?

Traveling to NYC for New Year’s, or really anything around Times Square, is a tourist trap.

Tell us about a moment during your travels when you felt like a pirate.

I would extend my work trips to be able to experience more of the cities, my company paid for flights, so all I needed to do was pay for a hotel for any extra days.
