Check bags or carry-on?
Carry-on if possible but if I’m traveling for work, I often have to check a back for photo equipment purposes.
Tell us about the last trip you took?
I was down in Los Cabos, Mexico exploring with Four Seasons Los Cabos at Costa Palmas. As they are opening in the fall, I got a first hand sneak peek at this much anticipated project which will redefine what a Cabo experience can be. It’s situated on the East Cape on the Sea of Cortez side which means swimmable beaches and wild undiscovered terrain.
What is your go-to travel attire?
How do you avoid jet lag?
Still working on mastering this! Often it feels like it’s just part of the process of travel. I will try to plan flights accordingly that may help with this or plan for a day of rest when I arrive.
Tell us about one of your favorite travel experiences?
With Mexico top of mind, we got to hike to a waterfall in Baja which was pristine and stunning. Upon arrival there was no one else in sight. We got to enjoy the natural beauty of the landscape, waterfall, and surrounding rock pools to the tune of birds and breezes.
How do you spend the majority of your time in flight?
Flights are always a great place for me to journal and zone out on Podcasts.
What are your top 3 Carry-On items you cant travel without?
A scarf to keep warm or as a pillow to sleep, chapstick, and my headphones.
What is your secret for keeping your skin healthy and glowing while you are traveling?
Staying hydrated! Knowing the climate I’m going to. Is it humid? Dry? Then I will pack my products accordingly. Been loving the Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub for that extra glow. Lastly, of course, sunscreen!
