More About Rori

Venice, Italy with my BFF since childhood, on my birthday week!

Favorite Travel Destination: I have been on a lot of cool trips, so it's hard to list a favorite. I loved Italy for the food, the wine, and the beauty of the country and the people. I loved hiking up (and down) volcanoes in Nicaragua - a very spiritual experience. I loved visiting Cuba and drinking their delicious rum and coffee (not together). The island of Kauai on Hawaii is absolutely heaven on earth - the tuna poke is to die for.

Travel Bucket List: Israel is next up in 2019, but there’s Spain, France, South Africa, Iceland, Greece...

Travel Inspiration: Travel fills me with happiness, amazing experiences and great memories. I love being immersed in other cultures, eating amazing food, trying new things, and living in the moment.
