Meet the Feet

Since you’ll be traveling with us for the next 7 weeks we thought you might like to get to know us a little bit better…

What country are you most excited for?

Coley: Thailand! I’m a sucker for markets. So just the fact that we’re going to a floating market, flower market, and street markets? SOLD!

Kim: Well obviously I’m excited for each country for different reasons, but if I HAD to pick one I’d say New Zealand because the scenery will be unbelievable and we have some pretty crazy adventures planned. Thailand is definitely a close second because it will be completely unlike anywhere I’ve ever been before.

What are your pet peeves of other travelers?

Coley: Living up to the “American travler” stereotype. For example: expecting everyone to speak English, being loud and obnoxious, high maintenance, etc.

Kim: Ughhh I cannot stand travelers who don’t appreciate culture or who are culturally insensitive. I just don’t see the point in going halfway around the world so you can just do everything exactly the same as at home.

What qualities make a good travel partner?

Coley: Kimmy Kimmy Cocoa Puff is a real go-getter. She is super adventurous and delightfully hilarious.

Kim: Coley Ravioli will be great because she’s pretty go-with-the-flow, has an uncanny ability sleep almost anywhere, and knows how to have a good time.

Do you think something will go wrong?

Coley: More than likely, but every misadventure is part of the experience.

Kim: Yes. That’s half the fun though right?

What is your favorite international dessert?

Coley: I’m a big fan of gelato, but since we’ll be quite a ways from Italy, I’m looking forward to trying pavlova!

Kim: I loved pavlova and Tim Tams from Australia. Also, I hear New Zealand has this awesome ice cream called Hokey Pokey, so I’m really looking forward to trying that.

Favorite accent?

Coley: To hear? English. To impersonate? Southern.

Kim: English!

Describe your travel style.

Coley: Low maintenance. Eager to learn. Ready to have a good time.

Kim: Organized but spontaneous at the same time. I try to do as much as I possibly can in the time that I have. I’d much rather go out, explore, and have an adventure than lay on the beach and relax.

What are 3 things you couldn’t leave home without?

Coley: Camera, chapstick, & comfy shoes

Kim: Camera, journal, and my favorite pair of jeans

If you could choose a celebrity to travel with, who would it be?

Coley: Danny DeVito (preferably as Frank from Always Sunny in Philadelphia)

Kim: Umm…does Jim from The Office count?

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten!?

Coley: Alligator

Kim:  Probably kangaroo…tastes like chicken 🙂

What’s your favorite place  you’ve been so far?

Coley: Innsbruck, Austria. It’s simply charming.

Kim: Melbourne, Australia is the perfect city in my opinion. I’m really excited we’ll be going back to spend 5 days in Melbourne so I can really explore it more. Ask me again after this trip and we’ll see if my answer changes.

What are you going to miss most about home?

Coley: My whole family! My nephew will be turning 1 in July, so I’ll be missing his birthday.

Kim: Mexican food, hot showers, and some privacy

What’s your favorite cereal? 

Coley: Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Kim: Hands down, Cinnamon Toast Crunch…a childhood favorite.

3 things you’re planning to cross off your bucket this list summer?

Coley: Ride an elephant in Thailand, go zorbing in New Zealand, and tubing in Laos

Kim: Bunjee jump in New Zealand, ride an elephant in Thailand, and blackwater raft
