Why did you join the community?

The community has been an eye-opener of what the travel industry can be all about – open, collaborative, sharing, and caring about the future of travel.

What is your favorite travel destination?

A nice mountain where I can snowboard and a nice beach where I can surf. I've recently really enjoyed Greece for its hospitality, great food, quality life, and adventure and outdoor sports opportunities.

Where do you dream of traveling to?

Can you bring a snowboard to the Moon?
