Almost every day I am asked interesting questions from all over the world and I thought I would start sharing my responses to them, along with travel related giveaways. I love questions, thus please feel free to ask me anything in the comments or send me a private message if you prefer.
Q31. What does you husband do for work by the way?
A31. Lucas is a Jack of all trades. By day he runs my father’s sports memorabilia business, Joe DiMaggio Estate, and attends the local university where he is studying International Business and by night he is a waiter. This is a big change from his life in Buenos Aires, where he was a Secret Service Agent for the President of Argentina and in school for Law. He loves it though and has huge dreams for his future!
Q32. I have a question for you: where can one find delicious Argentinian products, such as Havanettes, in the States?
A32. I am so sorry to disappoint you, but I have yet to find a good store or website in the States that carries Argentinean products. We usually bring back a suitcase or two full of stuff that we ration out until the next trip. When we do run out of alfajores, I will purchase some homemade ones from Etsy to satisfy our cravings, but they are usually very expensive. If any readers know of a good store or website please leave a comment below.
Q33. By the way, I am wondering where you are living: I always just kind of assumed that you and your husband were living in Argentina, but apparently I am wrong.
A33. We are living in Charlotte, North Carolina (my hometown). We travel to Buenos Aires about once or twice a year. Our next trip is this December/January for the holidays. We are so excited about this one in particular, because Lucas’ eldest brother and his wife are having the first grandchild (a daughter and she will be named Maria de los Ángeles) in the family in a couple of weeks and we cannot wait to meet her!
Q34. A great Ask Andi question would be what is your favorite photograph of you ever taken on your travels and what is your favorite photograph to have ever taken on your travels.
A34. This question had me thinking for a really long time! I believe my favorite photograph ever taken of me on my travels has to be the one my guide took of me next to the Moai on Easter Island. You can see pure joy and happiness radiating from my face, because it was such a special moment for me. I was visiting one of the most remote places in the world — a destination I had dreamed about since I was a child — and it was my last solo trip as a single woman before I was married.
Q35. So, if you could name one hotel, what is your favorite you have stayed in?
A35. The Upper House in Hong Kong is my favorite hotel in the world. In 2012, I was fortunate enough to stay there twice and both times my heart ached when I had to check out. I have yet to visit another hotel that even comes close to its level of luxury. You can see my video review of the hotel here.
