In 2011, with a four-week trip around Europe, Caroline became a true road warrior, and there’s been no stopping her since. Caroline likes to mix roughing it and luxury on her travels, sometimes staying in five-star hotels and other times in hostels. Her mantra: splurge on experiences! She enjoys traveling to new countries (and hopes to visit all 193 someday!), trying local foods, and meeting people from around the world. A few travel highlights so far include having breakfast at a macadamia nut farm in Guatemala, eating a raw (still moving!) octopus in South Korea, making new friends in Cambodia, seeing the aurora borealis in Iceland, and dining at a few Michelin-starred restaurants. To further connect with fellow travel enthusiasts, Caroline writes at and a number of other sites. She is fairly active on Twitter and Instagram. The top destinations currently on Caroline’s international-travel-bucket-list are visiting Antarctica, trekking through the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia, and going on a photo shoot to capture the salt flats in Bolivia. Domestically, she would like to visit the airplane graveyard in Arizona, do a multi-day hike in the Grand Canyon, and climb Mt. Rainier in Washington State.
