Drawn to seaside settings and Mediterranean cuisine, our copywriter Katie sets off to explore the dramatic scenery of the Amalfi Coast on a walking tour.
What do you do at Go Ahead?
I’m a copywriter and work as part of Go Ahead’s brand team to create materials that inspire and inform our travelers. A typical day for me can include writing emails, drafting tour itineraries, helping to concept our next catalog and researching far-flung destinations for a blog post.
Where have you traveled to before? What has been your favorite trip?
I’ve been lucky enough to travel throughout Europe, including Ireland, England, Italy, Germany, Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, France, Spain and Portugal. My favorite trip is a tie between a week in Barcelona with my brother and best friend and my time studying in Rome (does 6 months count as a trip?).
What is your favorite thing about visiting a new place?
Trying local cuisine! Some of my favorite travel memories took place while gathered around a table in an interesting setting—whether it was a bustling tapas bar or overlooking a serene vineyard.
Do you usually bring back souvenirs? What kinds?
I like to bring back something that I can display in my apartment as a reminder of my trip. I usually go for little prints or pretty ceramics that I can use as decorations.
What are you most excited to do or see on your tour?
I’m so excited to see what a Walking Tour is all about. I love being outside and exploring beautiful scenery, and the seaside cliffs and tiny paths of the Amalfi Coast look incredible!
