If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
It is really tough to pick just one place, but I’d choose Machu Picchu in Peru (assuming visitation regulations don’t apply to me.) Although I’d love to see all New Seven Wonders of the World eventually; Machu Picchu is the one that I’m most excited about seeing one day. I’m a huge ancient history buff and being able to explore and learn about the ruins for a week would be amazing.
Who is someone you admire and why?
When people think of superheroes, they typically think of Superman or Batman. I think of Barry Allen, the Fastest Man Alive. He may be fictional, but I admire him all the same. He is extremely loyal, courageous, good-willed, resourceful and he always sees the best in people even when they don’t see it in themselves.
