What’s your strategy to overcome jet lag?

Jet lag is tough! But I recommend you pack some type of hydrating serum to keep your face fresh on the flight, drink lots of water, and don’t forget to keep moving once you land. The biggest mistake I used to make was sitting down in the room once we checked-in.

Which destinations/hotels do you go back to again and again? Why?

Northern Italy. If I could, I would live there part-time. I love the people, the language, and the food so much. Lake Como, Florence, and Cinque Terre are three of my favorite destinations in that region.

Travel Tip

  • Spark up conversations with others! Mingle with locals, and your fellow travelers. These relationships are what make each trip inherently unique.
