Caroline is an Educational Account Executive at Hemisphere Educational Travel.
What is your favorite part about your job?
The people I work with. I felt like a family member my first day of work here!
Where is your favorite destination?
So far, New Orleans. I love the history, old buildings, spookiness and the fact that there is music everywhere you go. Plus, 24 hour Beignets and coffee at Café Du Monde!
What’s your most treasured travel memory, or the best thing you’ve learned while traveling?
One of my favorite travel memories is hiking with my family in Smoky Mountains, looking for fool’s gold in the streams. I have been a rock and gem collector ever since!
What is the best thing you have eaten while traveling?
I tried Raw Oysters in Aspen at Johnny’s Bodega, the spot where Jacques Pepin and other chefs were mingling after the Food and Wine Classic. I thought they would be gross, but I was reading Anthony Bourdain on the plane to Denver, and he inspired me to give them a try. I ended up ordering extras!
If you were stranded in an airport, what three things would you want with you?
My Kindle loaded with excellent reading material, my phone loaded with music (and headphones), and LOTS of coffee.
If you could run into anyone famous—fictional or nonfictional, historical or mythical—during travel, whom would you want to run into?
What’s one thing you would recommend every student group do while traveling?
Theater if possible!
What destination on your bucket list do you most want to visit?
What’s your favorite activity while traveling, or something you’ve always wanted to try?
I have gotten into doing Haunted Tours wherever they are available. I always end up meeting some fun people, and it’s a different way to see the city!
What do you love about travel?
I love that I can forget about all my worries at home for a little bit and just live in the moment, try new things and meet new people.
