What was/is your last/current trip? I recently went to Panama where I spoke at the Blogger Influencer Week LATAM. Social Media, Blogging, and Influencer campaigns for the travel industry is still a new concept. So it was very exciting to share my passion of digital storytelling with an audience who was so excited to unleash their creativity on social media platforms. After the conference I traveled around the country, visiting the jungles and beaches of Venao, a popular destination for surfers from around the world. I never really got surfer culture. Their laid back lifestyle was a bit too chill for me. But after spending several days at a surfer camp, I must say, my East Coast, Type-A heart melted to let the surfer vibes in

Where's home? I live in Manhattan, but I grew up on Long Island, New York.

What was/is your last/current trip? Every February I feel a strong urge to thaw out from these NYC winters. I just came back from a perfect weeklong adventure in Dallas, Nosara, Costa Rice, Miami and Denver. I love the idea that I surfed and snowboarded; was in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans all in the same week. Dallas and Miami were overnight layovers but I love making the most of my time anywhere. So I went out and explored the city. Costa Rica was for a friend’s birthday and Denver is to visit another friend that moved out there

What got you started? I wanted to travel, get out of a routine and learn to believe in myself again. Bicycle touring, when I came across the activity on the web, seemed to be the only thing that fulfilled my needs all around. I could travel inexpensively; I could lose weight; I could challenge myself, learning patience, perseverance and self-sufficiency; I could meet tons of people. And ultimately, when all was said and one, I knew I'd be the confident woman I started to lose in the monotony of everyday academic and work life. I thought to myself, if I can accomplish this, then I can do anything I set my mind to. My biggest dream is to be a professional violinist, but I started to lose hope in that dream. Bicycling seemed to rekindle that fire.
