5 things you bring on a plane: A bottle of water, a facial mist to keep my skin hydrated, a hand cream and a book or a magazine.
What do you always seem to forget? My hand cream (!) and a snack for the trip.
What do you like least about travel? While I love most aspects of traveling (it’s the journey itself—not the destination!), I would love to avoid standing in lines and checking in. It’s somewhat of a dreary process, especially if you do it on a regular basis!
What do you want your loved one to buy you from an airport Duty Free store? I usually buy it myself, however, a quality perfume or skin care product is always nice.
Favorite travel app(s): I’m quite fond of Foursquare. It’s simple yet genius!
Most embarrassing travel moment: Honestly, I can’t remember! But I’m sure something will come to mind when I think hard enough…
Worst travel moment: There’s a couple of ‘em. One time I was on my way to explore the pretty little town of Frascati just outside of Rome. They produce the best wine there and I was super excited to go! However, it started raining a bit when the train rolled out of the station and 5 minutes later it was pouring so much (for the rest of the day!) that I had no option but to stay inside the train station. The streets were deserted and there were no taxi drivers in sight. I got to know that station pretty well though…
What’s your dream destination? For the moment I’m dreaming about Miami, Singapore and Marrakech.
Best travel tip: Pack smart, wear comfortable yet chic clothes and be prepared.
