What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever visited?

I very much enjoy spending time at the beach and the most beautiful stretch of beach that I’ve visited is in Bermuda.  The pink sand shores against the crystal-clear water are truly a spectacular sight!

What’s one of your most memorable travel experiences?

My most memorable travel experience was my first trip to Europe. Taking in the iconic destinations in Paris such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and the Arc de Triomphe made for an amazing and memorable experience.

What’s the best piece of advice you’d give someone?

Do: Take chances, focus on the good, be picky with your friends, spend time alone, smile more, read books, be gentle, educate yourself, be kind to people, keep on growing, be good. Don’t: Overthink, fear the future, need someone else to be happy, be afraid to make mistakes, worry about things you can’t control, look back, wait for everything to be perfect, give up.
