Why do you like to travel? Traveling is always so inspiring. I love going to places I haven’t been and seeing foreign cultures.
Favorite Familiar Places? I still always like going back to St. Barth. It always feels a like home, partly because I am half French, but having been there so many times it is always very comforting to be back. I also love going to Tulum and San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. We also take frequent ski trips.
Where would you like to go next? There are a lot of places on my bucket list though – Punta del Este, Fiji, Vietnam and Cuba of course. There are too many exciting places to go!
I don’t leave home without . . . . For any trip I have to take all my gadgets and chargers. I always read the New York Post on my iPhone so that is a must, and I like to download new books on my iPad for traveling. I also have a supply of Celtic salt and Tabasco that I bring with me, and I always have a pile of Paper Mate SharpWriters – I have to be prepared when the inspiration for my next collection comes!
