I travel for connections and perspectives. When you're outside of your ordinary, every experience is a chance to learn. It's fascinating to find out what makes other cultures unique—and also realize how much we share.
The best meal I've had abroad is tarte flambée. It's an Alsatian specialty that's basically a very thin crust pizza topped with crème fraîche, onions, and bacon. (Ceviche in Peru and tapas in Spain are in a close second and third place, mmm...)
My travel wish list is constantly growing! India, Scandinavia, South Africa, and Hawaii are top contenders now. And there are certain places that just beg for another visit. Looking at you, Japan!
