Landing in St Barth’s the first time!
I wing it.
I don’t think about it – I just keep going.
Going to University in St Louis and going back and forth to NYC on TWA made me love traveling and I wanted to share it with others.
I don’t, I love new locales!
My next trip is always the one I’m looking forward to most; today it’s Melbourne. Nothing gets me excited like heading to the airport.
A great airport lounge is always included!
Always pick a plane with wi-fi on long haul flight.
