What's your favorite thing about traveling?

Traveling opens up a world of new cultures, unknown natural landscapes, and new tastes to discover.

Why do you think it's important to travel?

It enriches your worldview, enables you to enhance social sensitivity, and lets you experience different cultural backgrounds than your own.

What is your idea of a perfect vacation?

It must give you a complete getaway experience, and make you forget about everyday stress. 

What's the best place you've ever visited and why?

Probably the place that's closest to my heart is the Cote d'Azur. While there, I fell in love with the landscape, weather, French cuisine, and style of the local people. 

What do you consider to be your best finds from your travels and where was it?

When I was traveling to  Istanbul, I bought two scarves in the local market. Every time I wear them ever since I'm always reminded of the well-spent days there. 

What destination is at the top of your must-visit list?

If my budget allows it, I would like to visit the Maldives and the Caribbean.

What was the most exotic dining or cultural experience you've had when traveling?

In Georgia, I had the chance to visit a vineyard, where after being shown around the cellar and the vines, I was welcomed with an extraordinary freshly cooked traditional feast made by the winemaker's mom, of course, accompanied by their wines. With everyone sitting around one big table and sharing the meal, it was a unique experience. 

What's something you always bring with you when you travel?

Normally a friend of mine, preferably one of my best friends.

Best advice for travelers to Europe?

Enjoy the colorful cultures and try to talk to locals to see the world through their eyes. 

Mountains or beaches? Why?

I was born in the summertime, and perhaps this is why I'm a beach person. 

Planes, trains, or automobiles? How do you like to travel and why?

Normally, I prefer combining different means of transport. If there is an alternative to flying, I try to choose that option. 

How do you manage pre-trip stress/anxiety and/or unexpected situations during your travels?

During every trip, I am super excited from the very first minute. This adrenaline gives me a better skill set to solve unexpected difficulties. 

When you travel are you more interested in history, relaxation, cuisine, or adventure?

I am quite the foodie, so gastronomy is always a big draw for me, but I'm also interested in getting to know more about a destination's history. I always make sure I leave at least one day for relaxation, too. 

What were your reasons for choosing to work in travel? And what value do you see in it?

Since I love to travel, the prospect of finding a job related to what I liked seemed to be a good deal. Contributing to give the best first impressions and representing our destination to tourists is quite a noble mission which makes me proud to be a part of this progress. 

What’s something you’ve been meaning to try, but haven’t got around to yet?

I would really like to visit some Asian countries,  preferably on a long, slow trip.
