    What is the most important thing you've learned from traveling?

    Patience. By nature is not one of my top virtues, but years of travel have helped to build that capacity. I now try to treat the odd lost bag, forgotten item or missed connection as some kind of #TravelTip for the future.

    What's your most exciting or surprising travel experience?

    In 1995, we arrived in Katmandu to what I think of as sensory overload. Once we managed our way through the local bureaucracy to get our treking visas we boarded a packed bus and literally headed for the hills. The following 21 days were the most remarkable and still mark my life.

    What's your favorite mode of transportation? Why?

    Actually, I have two favourites (is that allowed?) I love trains and train stations. Trains allow one to see the countryside much better than from a car, and I love train stations for people watching. My other favourite is a local bus, there is no better way to imagine you are a local.

    Do you prefer traveling alone or with a companion? Why?

    That is not a fair question. I enjoy both! Travelling with someone else helps to build my patience (see above), but is also a fabulous way to explore a new (or old) destination. That being said I love the excitement of discovering a new place on my own, at my pace.
