Twipper of the Week: Christine Amorose from C’est Christine Blog

amorose

Current city: Brooklyn, New York

Age: 27

Total countries visited: 33

What makes you interesting: I’m not afraid to take a risk. I’ve moved to new countries and cities without knowing a soul, traveled solo through many countries, skydived and bungee jumped, and gone canyoning. I think that my love of doing new things, especially when people say that it might be scary, has made for an interesting life so far.

What brands do you love: I gravitate toward brands with a simple aesthetic that focus on doing one or two things really well instead of trying to master everything like Everlane, Cuyana and In & Out Burger. In the travel space, I’m super dedicated to JetBlue.

It’s 2050, list all the places you are most proud to have visited: Machu Picchu in Peru, the Greek islands, the pyramids in Egypt and hopefully all of the islands in the Caribbean!

What motivates you to travel: I love trying new foods and new activities, but honestly, I love taking photos of new places and I’m most inspired when I’m somewhere unfamiliar.

What have you learned about yourself during your travels: I can’t control everything and that’s okay. Traveling constantly reminds me to focus on what I can control, like my attitude, and let go of worrying about everything else.

What item will you never leave home without: I’ve recently become addicted to traveling with my Bose noise-canceling headphones. They are a total life-saver on long flights.

What do you enjoy doing the most during your travels: No matter where I am, my favorite thing to do is take a long walk at sunrise.

If your personality was a city or country, which one would it be: New York City! I always have a million things going on at once and I’m always looking forward to the next big thing.

Next travel destination: Quebec City!
