What item is in your suitcase that you couldn’t travel without?

Band-Aids (I have 3 boys).


What’s your most treasured travel souvenir?

A bracelet that was given to me on my honeymoon by a store owner in San Juan. My husband and I were shopping and the power went out in the city. We didn’t realize that when the power goes out in downtown San Juan all of the shops lock their doors until it goes back on. It wasn’t a big deal and we had fun shopping and talking with the shop owner of the store we were in. She kindly gave me a bracelet as a wedding gift. It’s a simple bangle with flowers but I still wear it.


What’s the most memorable dish you’ve eaten during your travels?

Of all my travels, my most memorable dish is the Fettuccini Alfredo served aboard our ships. To me, it just doesn’t get any better than the freshly made pasta and rich, creamy sauce. My husband and I always look forward to it and we’ve shared some very special moments together over a dish of Fettuccini Alfredo.


What’s your travel motto?

Keep safe and always carry a credit card with you!


Where haven’t you been that’s on your travel bucket list?

India and Australia.
