What's your favorite vacation destination? One of my favorite trips was travelling through Japan with my sister. From the culture to the landscape to the incredible people we met it was an unparalleled experience--not to mention the food!

What's your first family vacation memory with your parents? We went on a boat tour in Kauai when I was about six and it was the first time I had ever seen seals, sea turtles and dolphins up close. I was completely thrilled, but the combination of my excitement mixed with the rocking boat ended in me getting seasick while trying to pet the dolphins!

What would you take on a desert island? I'd bring my bathing suit, sunscreen and coconut water and turn it into a relaxing getaway.

What's on your family vacation wish list? My whole family skies, including my older sisters, their husbands and now my nieces. Because of our busy schedules we haven't all been able to go together in years. I would love to rent a big cabin and do a fun winter ski trip with my entire extended family.
