Do you unpack into the dresser/closet? Or live out of your suitcase? I’m usually not in any one place for more than a night, so I live out of my suitcase when I’m on the road.

Favorite island: Tsarabanjina, a tiny island off the north coast of Madagascar. Paradise!

Favorite fancy restaurant: The French Laundry in Yountville, California

Favorite hole in the wall: Zushi Puzzle in San Francisco

Drink of choice (In the air and on the ground): Champagne and champagne

Favorite travel website(s) – besides JohnnyJet.com, of course!: TripIt. I manage all of my itineraries with it.

Five things you bring on a plane: Passport, noise-canceling headphones, laptop, cameras, carry-on bag (I don’t check bags as a rule!).

What do you want your loved one to buy you from an airport duty free store? Anything edible or drinkable.

Favorite travel app(s): Instagram. I love sharing my photos while I’m traveling!

Most embarrassing travel moment: Forgetting to get a visa for Brazil until three days before I was supposed to leave. I had to rebook my entire trip for a month later.

Worst travel moment: Getting stuck in Bamako for 48 hours after my plane from Dakar to Nairobi had mechanical problems. Bamako is a great city, but I had already been there on the same trip.

What’s your dream destination: Currently it’s Mauritius. Hoping to go there soon!

Best travel tip: Never check a bag.
