jetsetters: the romantic

Excited for another week of Jetsetters, our weekly feature with fellow travelers! You can read the Wino’s here, and always check out the Jetsetters tab at the top of the page. Favorite place you’ve been: Hardest question ever, but I daydream about France (Paris and the Riviera) daily More importantly, favorite meal: Chateau Eza in Eze. I could have been eating bugs, the view was so amazing. The moment you caught the travel bug: Officially? The view flying into Athens on my first European experience with hubs. I think I may have cried? First experience traveling alone: Hmmm… I’ve never really traveled very far completely alone, actually. I took the train down to DC by…
