Are you a traveler? Which place is your favorite so far?
I’m trying to be more of a traveler. Spain

What’s your best travel story?
I was 18 years old and I arrived in Spain in the early hours of the day. I was starving so I went to a sandwich shop to get myself something to eat. All combos included a beer, so I ended up purchasing a sandwich combo with a beer which I devoured within 5 minutes. I had beer for breakfast! It was the best 🙂 And no one batted an eye at me drinking beer looking as young as I did. 18 is the legal drinking age over there, needless to say I was hydrated by beer most of my trip.

Why do you love traveling?
I love learning about other cultures and trying different foods! I’m such a sucker for food.
