Travel chat with Senior Digital Account Coordinator Elise Therien

How long have you been traveling?
I have been traveling ever since I was baby. My Mom loves traveling and has lived in many different countries so I aspire to be as worldly as her.

What do you do to avoid getting sick?
If I’m traveling on winding roads or long plane rides, it helps me to look directly out the window.

What is the best way to change currency?
I exchange my money at the post office or use a card.

Aisle or window?
Window. I love to watch the views from the plane, especially landing and taking off- that’s my favorite part.

Tips on how to take a nap on a plane?
I like to use the window to sleep on and I always bring a blanket or sweater.

What’s your favorite airline and hotel?
I’m not picky when it comes to airlines. My favorite hotel I’ve stayed at is The El Conquistador Resort in Puerto Rico. The resort has a beautiful beach and a waterpark!

Best way to overcome jetlag?
I try my best to nap on the plane and drink coffee if needed.

What is your favorite/worst thing about traveling?
I love to explore new places, especially traveling to new countries and immersing myself in their culture.

What is your longest trip to date? 
I went to Europe with my friends for 2 weeks in high school.

Do you believe you do not know someone till you have traveled with them?
Yes, I’ve defiantly gotten closer with my friends and family I’ve traveled with.

What is your travel horror story?
I went to the Grand Canyon on a family vacation and we decided to hike to the bottom of the canyon and back in one day. I passed out from the heat exhaustion and dehydration at the bottom of the canyon, but luckily recovered and made it back up the canyon. Although it was a major struggle, I wouldn’t change that trip for the world.

Favorite destination and why?
My favorite and most unique place I’ve visited was Iona, an island off the coast of Scotland. There were no cars on the island, everyone just got around by foot. There were so many beautiful hikes and lots of sheep.
