Here she talks about her favorite destinations and where we can expect from her next!
So when and why did you decide that you wished to make a career out of traveling?
Somewhere between seeing GlobeTrekker in my room for a child, and also taking a traveling writing class during my study in New Zealand, I understood that a traveling career was the way forward.
How many days/weeks are you currently travel in any given year?
I’ve been a fulltime vagabond, along with a part-time pupil — somewhere in between works. I am happiest having a plane at least once a month!
You have covered many destinations to your job as host of Let’s Roam. What was the most exotic?
The property of baby sloths, colombia beaches lush jungles, along with sexy salsa clubs.
Your traveling experience?
Quitting my job and booking a ticket to Italy to teach English. I had a speech and also the title of my new boss scribbled to a shred. It was not, although I thought it could happen to be a scam. It was wonderful. Life hasn’t been the same. Not enough! Never enough!
How many countries have you been around?
Not enough! Never enough!
Name your top three destinations (one Historical, one gastronomic, and one picturesque)
Historic – Angkor Wat in Cambodia
Give us the’Top 5′ record for one of the above destinations, like a mini-guide or even to-do list of sorts (it could be anything like a restaurant you recommend, a unique hotel, action, etc..)
Gastronomic – Italy

Your traveling film?
Five Must-Try Foods Around Italy:
Favorite restaurant at the U.S.?
It’s Italy and here’s why.
Favorite city at the U.S.?
Cinema Paradiso, no question.
Favorite restaurant abroad?
That’s tough. I can not really narrow it down to a person but that I love The Insulation in NYC, Antica Pesa at Brooklyn, Lure Fishbar (Miami or NYC), Gjelina at Abbott Kinney. I am 100 percent Italian, therefore that it goes without saying that my favorite eatery is actually my grandma’s kitchen.
Favorite airport on earth?
New York City.
I was born in Long Island and I am residing in Brooklyn once I am not residing abroad. I’ve been to additional U.S. cities but nowhere quite compares for me. There’s always something new to discover in new york, even in the event that you’ve lived here for 10 years….50 decades.
It’s not a restaurant; it is an remarkable cocktail bar called Lidkoeb at Copenhagen.
Place together with the most friendly folks?
Bangkok International Airport is quite crazy. It has one of the biggest airport terminals on earth.
If your journeys had a soundtrack what record is it?
I do have a favorite airline, however I fly Delta often.
Kindle, Nook, or i-Pad?
I believe there’s a correlation between being friendly and residing in a island. A number of the most friendly folks I’ve ever met traveling were at Curacao and Fiji.
Most influential person you’ve met while traveling?
I tend to become fixated on musical styles based on the states I visit. I could not stop listening to Carlos Vives to Colombia following my trip, Zvonko Bodgdan following my trip to Serbia and Finnebassen following my trip to Amsterdam. Obviously that my soundtrack to travel would be diverse, and something I’ve found on Soundcloud.
A destination that surprised you the most and surpassed all your expectations?
You have completed several TV appearances of Fox & Friends and The Now Show. What’s your favorite segment?
At the sake of sounding cheesy, I think every man I’ve encountered while traveling has influenced me. Anyone with a story to tell — I am all ears.
Your very best piece of travel advice?
The attractiveness of that trip, was I had no expectations. But New Zealand far surpassed anything even my crazy imagination might conjure up!
Actually it turned out to be a spontaneous”After The Show” segment. The producer asked me to stay around after the anchors along with my segment and I chatted about my travels. It was totally unrehearsed.
What are without?
Don’t procrastinate. If not now? When?
What’s your dream destination?
Friendships and relationships definitely become more challenging.
What jobs are you?
Rohto eye drops Google Maps App, for extended flights, GoPro Hero 3 + Origins GinZing face lotion!
Your traveling quotation?
Africa…all of it.
