What do you do at Go Ahead?
I spend most of my time enhancing the website and adding new features with the goal of making the site easier to use and navigate.
Where have you traveled to before? What has been your favorite trip?
Outside of North America, I have traveled to Iceland, France, and the Czech Republic. My favorite trip so far has been to Iceland, I first traveled there in 2012 and loved it so much that I went back there this past February. The landscapes there are extremely varied and unlike anything I’ve ever seen anywhere else.
What is your favorite thing about visiting a new place?
When visiting a new place I try to meet locals and learn about their day to day life and how it is different from ours in the U.S. I think you can learn a lot from other cultures through conversation.
Do you usually bring back souvenirs? What kinds?
I always bring back souvenirs but I don’t usually buy them in stores. My favorite things to take back with me are random items that I pick up along the way that have a certain memories of the trip tied to them. A few that I have picked up are a small rock from the Czech Republic and a toy car from Iceland.
What are you most excited to do or see on your tour?
I chose this tour because it goes to three great cities that all offer something a little different. London and Rome have been on my list for a while, and even though I have been to Paris, I have been craving Raclette since I left.
