What was your first passport stamp?
England: London.

How did you find BootsnAll, &/or what attracted you to it?
While at Grad school in the UK in 2003, a friend (and fellow American abroad) told me about this ‘BootsnAll’ site that had great insight in to what’s happening in London and good travel tips for students. Thanks, Kelley 😉

What keeps you coming back to BootsnAll?
Kelley and I kept randomly checking up on the site after moving back to the US to see if anything grabbed our interest. Then in ’07, she and I decided to go on the BootsnAll Deschutes Rafting trip as a fun girls’ trip away. We had an awesome time and the rest is history….

Is there a destination you have really liked in spite of it having a poor reputation?
I’d have to say El Salvador. Not just because of any of the sights or foods there (San Salvador Volcano, Los Cóbanos beach and INCREDIBLE ceviche). But, because the people there just amazed me. I was in San Salvador for a month for work and the Salvadorans just adopted me and made me feel very welcome. They made sure I had dinner at someone’s home every night, was shown all the sights of the city and that I had a beer in my hand as soon as the clock hit 5pm. What’s not to love about that?

Do you have any upcoming trips? Where is next on your list?
Steamboat Springs, CO over New Years for skiing and fun times with good friends.

What is a place you’ve been to that you would go back to tomorrow given the chance?
Montreal.

How many miles will you be travelling to be at the BootsnAll Party?
4926 miles.

Thanks for sharing, nat_brat. Be sure to say hi to her if you’ll be joining us at the party!
