With nine kids, you'd think travel would be out of the question. But my parents would pack us all up each summer in their vintage 1957, candy-apple red Dodge van to road trip across the nation. Between childhood travels and my own cross country adventures, I've managed to visit 42 U.S. states. In my time abroad, I traveled in Europe and the Caribbean. Whether luxuriating in a five-star hotel or camping out at the most rustic of sites, travel will always be in my blood.
