Favorite vacation memory:

Vienna with my family while I was in high school. We visited the palaces and ate all the wiener schnitzel the city had to offer.

What place would you like to visit that you haven’t yet:

I love cities, have red hair and a pale complexion, so Dublin is on my list.

One item you can’t travel without:

My Bose noise-canceling ear buds. They get you through any long flight and even without music playing, they keep all the external noise out.
