More about Trek With Taylor

  • Born in: Tuscaloosa, Alabama
  • Passports from: 2 US Passports
  • Favorite travel book: Eat Pray Love, I guess? I don’t tend to read a ton of travel books.
  • Favorite travel film:  Honestly? The Lizzie McGuire Movie or The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Those both probably sound so trivial or childish but from a young age they really inspired me to want to get to Europe and see the places in those movies. And, I am happy to say, I have now been to Rome (multiple times) and finally made it to Greece! I think it was so influential at a young age to be able to see to see other young women traveling around the world.
  • Must carry: My retainer and a small stuffed animal (named Bun Bun). Also, definitely need my phone.
  • Favorite app: Google flights for planning. Google sheets for organization.
  • Favorite food:  Pizza. Or anything involving cheese really.
  • Favorite drink: Sprite, but I try to drink as much water as possible while traveling.
  • Favorite airline: Norwegian! I love their cheap flights linking the US and Europe. Definitely my favorite low cost carrier. As far as the big name airlines go I would say American Airlines because two of my grandparents worked for and retired from American.
  • Favorite hotel: East Winds in Saint Lucia! It was one of the first stops on my trip and it will be very hard to ever beat. It was so beautiful and I have never been so pampered in my life.
