What’s your travel style?
My favorite travel style is relaxed... I love beach vacations—laying on the beach, reading a good book, listening to some great music. On the other hand, when I travel to a destination that has culture and amazing sites to see, then I love to get out and immerse myself into the culture—to experience the destination up close and personal, like India, Italy, Dubai, Turkey etc.

What is your favorite travel destination? What is the thing that no one should miss when they visit?
As silly as it sounds, I think Maui is my favorite travel destination and one that I go back to just about every year. During my last visit we discovered the Paia Peace Stupa. Paia is an eclectic hippie town on the North Shore, and the Stupa has an enormous prayer wheel inside—used to accumulate wisdom and dispel bad karma, you turn the wheel in one direction while setting an intention. Oh! And it's just down the street from Willie Nelson's bar Charley's Restaurant & Saloon where you can often find Willie and/or his son Lukas hanging out and jamming when they are home on the island.

What is the most interesting souvenir that you have ever bought on one of your holidays?
The most interesting souvenir that I bought came from New Guinea — a Koteka, which is a sheath made from a dried gourd and is worn as a genital cover by males in Highland Tribes!

Describe the most interesting or one of the most interesting persons you met on one of your travels.
The most interesting person that I ever met was Prince Tunku Naquiyuddin of Malaysia. I met him in the lounge at the Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul. Myself and a few other women on our trip were in the bar lounge having a post dinner cocktail and we noticed this large group of people in the lounge having a party. The women were all amazingly beautiful and their dresses were exquisite. Well they must have noticed us staring at the group. A few minutes later the waiter came to our table with champagne sent from the party. Shortly thereafter a man approached our table. As it turns out, he was the Prince of Malaysia and was there with his entourage celebrating his 66th birthday. He sat with us for quite awhile and answered our many questions. He was such an interesting, humble and gracious man.
