1) WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT TRAVELING?
Finding the hidden gems each city has to offer, tasting and cooking local cuisine, walking around the city and taking in my surroundings.
2) WHAT DOES YOUR ULTIMATE TRIP LOOK LIKE?
Exploring the city by bike, stopping at cafes and local restaurants, taking a cooking class and going to museums.
3) WHAT IS YOUR PERFECT DAY IN YOUR CITY?
I would wake up and go for a run one of Raleigh's beautiful paths behind my house. After, I would visit Scratch in Durham for brunch and an delicious homemade pie, always Chocolate Chess. Then I would walk around the city, visiting the little boutiques and entering random local cafe's. For dinner, I would stop at Bida Manda for a papaya salad and macaroons.
4) WHAT CULTURE HAS SURPRISED YOU THE MOST AND WHY?
The American culture. It was a cultural shock coming here from Honduras when I was 7. Many things are done differently, more efficiently and come in larger sizes than anywhere else I have been. The customs are also very different from my country. For example, sleepovers were a new an exciting cultural revelation.
5) WHAT'S THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM ALL OF YOUR TRAVELS?
Walking tours are the best way to get to know a city because you feel as if you are part of the city. You are also able to spot hidden gems and enter into stores or restaurants that you might have otherwise missed.
6) WHAT IMMEDIATELY CONNECTS YOU TO A NEW PLACE?
Trying the food. In my foodie opinion, food is at the core of culture. It is both interesting and exciting to see how cultures all over the world experiment with ingredients and create authentic flavors that are so different from their neighboring countries and sometimes even cities.
8) WHAT IS YOUR NEXT TRAVEL-RELATED PURCHASE?
A plane ticket to Miami
9) WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEASON TO TRAVEL AND WHY?
Fall because it's not too hot and the colors are beautiful
