    Totally different from my “travel likes and wants.” I travel for fun — not professionally. Favorite city: Paris (live there several months each year). Do not use a purse. Wear just two colors — black and white work well. Favorite island — Bora Bora, Tahiti. Bring nothing on a plane except my carryon bag.
