Traveler Next Door: Michele Watson

This week's Traveler Next Door is Michele Watson, traveler, photographer, and writer. Learn more about Michele at her website, Check out some of her photography here.

What do you look for when traveling? I look for new passions. New insights and knowledge.

When was your last trip? May 2006 a short getaway to Barcelona, Spain.

Why do you travel? I want to discover everything that I possibly can about the world. Travel completes me. It makes me a better American and a better global citizen. Travel has a spill over effect on every aspect of my life.

How do you prepare for a trip? I spend months prior to a trip on research. Travel shows, travel magazines, travel books, movies, the internet.

If you could travel without restrictions, where would you go? Road trip the entire continent of Africa- the place of all our beginings.

Where to next? Taking the parents to Italy and France, also a birthday trip to do some more exploration of Turkey and Greece.

What's the one thing you regret about traveling? That we don't have family and friends with us to share the experience and wonders of the world.
