Why do you like to travel? I love to travel and understand the necessity of it. I think it is important to change your environment; to breathe different air, to see different things, to learn about different cultures and to take time away from your everyday existence.
I think anyone working long hours needs to take some sort of break, even if it is a weekend. Working in a creative field, I feel it is crucial for my brain and for my health to come back refreshed, happier and more productive. Even traveling for a day on a job can feel like a vacation just to be in a different environment, especially if I am in a beautiful location.
Favorite familiar places? Hotel Du Cap, Rancho La Puerta, Italy, and Paris.
Where would you like to go next? I would love to explore some place new, maybe an interesting resort or health spa with a new approach.
I don’t leave home without . . . . My chargers for my iPhones and iPad, a first aid/fix it bag that has anything I might need while traveling in a foreign country, and my slippers.
From Ann’s wish list we surmise that she like her creature comforts while on the road to relax from a day at the office or on the set – A pair of Brooks Brothers Men’s Pajamas, SKIN Organic Robe, Heidi Wynne’s Cashmere Scarf, Belgian Shoes Travellette Slippers and Alicia Adams Alpaca Eye Mask and Blanket
