Why I travel: Traveling is a lot of different things for me, it’s a way for me to see the world and I get to meet new people who can become some really great friends. I get to experience new things and get out of your comfort zone, discovering things about myself and create memories that I’ll remember forever.

My favourite travel memory with FnEZ: I don’t know if I can ever pick just one favourite memory with FnEZ after coming on so many trips so here is a favourite for each trip: 1) The Lake House in Thailand, 2) New Year's Day Party in Nicaragua, 3) Hiking Mt. Rinjani in Indonesia, 4) Checking Machu Picchu off my bucket list in Peru, 5) the beautiful beaches of Boracay in Philippines, 6) Old Town in Cartagena, Colombia, and 7) doing the Tarzan Swing while zip lining in Costa Rica!

My most embarrassing travel story: Probably my most recent travel injury... I got wine drunk at a pool party and fell down a dirt road and got a gnarly road rash down my whole leg. The embarrassing part is that I couldn’t get bandages large enough to cover it so I bought maxi pads and tape to serve as a bandage. *facepalm*

Top 3 items I can't travel without: Some great music, a speaker to go along with the music, and a sarong (so versatile!).

What I love about traveling with FnEZ: I love that it takes all the guess work out of everything! I love that I just need to show up and I know that everything is going to be taken care of by the amazing guides.

Next bucket list item I need to check off: Next bucket list item ... I’d love to make it to Australia/New Zealand eventually!

My future travel plans: I have a few smaller trips for this year but will most likely be signing up for a 20-day Greece trip!
