How did your passion for travel begin?

When my parents first took me in 21 years old — to Paris, Rome, and Greece, my enthusiasm for travel began. I fulfilled my fiancé at Greece, and after that we moved together to Tanzania. That annoys it!

How many days/weeks are you currently traveling in any given year?

This is dependent upon my work schedule. There was a period of two years each month, in which I was delivered on a reporting trip. But the company I worked for as a journalist recently painted, so my traveling has slowed down way. All I have is two international trips around the horizon! It is erratic.

Which are the types?

Depends on my mood! I moved for about seven decades so I’m about a Europe kick. If I’m in the mood for it — jungles, beaches, 20, I can get down with whatever. One of my favorite trips ever (not a job coverage excursion, for vacation) was to the French countryside, in which I even stayed at a 17th century chateau. It was ah-mazing!

What is The Traveling Muse all about, and exactly what makes it unique to all of the travel articles out there?

The Traveling Muse is a narrative account of my own life as a travel writer. I take my audience on my reporting trips, trips that are private, share with them my travel inspirations and tips. My travel is what is unique — I stared as a traditional TV reporter, and made the successful jump in 31 years old. There is something fresh in my take about traveling, coming out of my own background. I have been on both sides of the travel journalism sport — as a self indulgent journey vlogger, to an travel journalist with a company that was electronic.

You share a honest and raw look at the highs and lows of your trip. What is the main lesson you removed out of your struggle to get to where you are?

Oh man! So many courses there. Remain true to yourself, believe in your self, and be super duper. If you don’t know exactly what it looks, sounds, feels, smells like, you can not manifest anything. Also — request for the things you want. I got my job as a travel journalist since I pitched the job to the company that wanted to employ me as a journalist that was normal. I have a career video on my Youtube page which violates down this!

You have covered stories as a travel journalist. Which of your own stories has had the biggest impact on you and why?

I did a story on the use of it in San Quentin State Prison helped reform that a person serving a sentence for murder, and hula dance’s civilization. His name was Upu. I will never forget the way transparent and open he was and our interview, and just how much he respected the culture of hula. It reaffirmed my view because everything is humanized by it that exposure to other cultures and mindsets is really healing. Among my favorites, the narrative is For this day.

What do you want viewers to obtain and learn from your job?

I want my job to spark a desire to learn more about the planet. I want someone to view one of my stories and then come away wanting to learn, then buy digging to educate themselves. And if this compels them receive firsthand learning experiences concerning locations, cultures, and individuals and also to buy a plane ticket — I have done my job well.

Which are?

Easy ???? Turkey, spain, France! All nations in their own ways.

What is the perfect way to kill time while traveling?

Watching movies and reading novels. I could not do long haul traveling without them. Since I will do both in one device, my kindle is my lifesaver.

What is the most exotic place your livelihood has taken you?

Georgia (the country). Whoa, that has been an adventure! Before I moved there, I was so uneducated on the folks and that civilization. It is so steeped in culture and background — did you know contemporary wine making has been created in Georgia? Neither did I, till I met the winemakers and went there.

What is your piece of travel suggestions for someone who would like to, or is going to, embark on a lifetime of travel?

Traveling is your life’s most enriching adventure. Document the hell out of this , but then put your phone down and then take it all in. Stay adaptive and practice deep breathing — you will need to pivot, and something WILL fail. Traveling is a superb lesson in figuring out how to roll with these punches.

What are without?

Fantastic walking shoes (Clarks consistently makes my preferred ), my Kindle, sleeping pills (lol honest truth), and my camera. )

What is your dream destination?

Oh lord. This can be tough to slim down. Dying to perform Morocco, Cuba, Buenos Aires, and also the south of France….

What is your favorite travel quotation?

“Traveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” — Ibn Battuta

Where are you headed?

Hopefully – if all pans out – Jordan and Peru!
