Twipper of the Week: Carol Perehudoff from Wandering Carol.
Current City: I live in Toronto but right now am in France.
Age: Not a chance.
Total countries visited: I’ve lost count.
What makes you interesting: I always say the wrong thing, do the wrong thing and go the wrong way, but I do this with enthusiasm. I’m also passionate about good hotels, flat cycling trails in beautiful regions and thermal water spas.
What’s one thing you have no problem breaking the bank for when traveling: 5-star hotels, but I always search frantically for the best price.
What are your travel rituals: Regretting the things I didn’t pack, reading all tourism and hotel literature I can find as soon as I arrive somewhere and walking.
What do you put in your carry-on baggage: As much as I can stuff in. I’ve had way too much luggage go astray, so I like to have a change of clothes, a beach bag with flip flops and bathing suit, my computer, a book and as much skincare and makeup as I can stuff into the plastic airline bag for liquids.
What is your favorite app to use during your travels: Truthfully I don’t use many, but I’m obsessed with Instagram.
Is there anywhere you will not travel to: I won’t travel anywhere if it’s at the end of a bungee cord.
How has travel changed you or how do you hope it will change you: It certainly has made me realize that my home is not the universe, and that I should be grateful for what I have and for being able to travel when so many people the world over aren’t able to.
Next travel destination: A hotel barge cruise on called Athos. We’ll be cruising on the Canal du Midi in France!
