What was your first passport stamp?
Mexico.

How did you find BootsnAll, &/or what attracted you to it?
It was a combination of the Rolf Potts Vagabonding book, and reading one of Jen Leo’s Traveler Tales’ anthologies. I remember reading the thank you’s and BootsnAll was mentioned, so I checked it out.

What keeps you coming back to BootsnAll?
The sense of community is one of my favorite things about BootsnAll. I love that no matter where we are from, or what age, we all at the very minimum have at least one thing in common.

Is there a destination you have really liked in spite of it having a poor reputation?
Some people hate New York, some people loved it. While I fell in love with the city, not every part of being there is glamorous.

Do you have any upcoming trips? Where is next on your list?
Vancouver, BC.

What is a place you’ve been to that you would go back to tomorrow given the chance?
New York!

How many miles will you be travelling to be at the BootsnAll Party?
Only a couple! I live in Portland.

What kind of boots do you have?
Houndstooth print rainboots. Do they count? I need some real boots.

Any tips you found on BootsnAll or from other members on the forums that helped you on a trip?
The cheap and free city guides are wonderful. And I love the chit-chat forum for all the randomness and laughs.

Have you been to a BootsnAll party before? If so, what survival tips can you offer to any newbies?
Of course! BnA party weekend is my favorite time of year.

Thanks for sharing, travelgirltiff. Be sure to say hi to her if you’ll be joining us at the party! It’s her birthday around then too, so wish her well.
