A globetrotting travel addict, she’s visited more than 100 countries, reporting from many of them, and lived in countries on three continents (Colombia, Niger, U.S.). Along the way, she’s hunted alligators in the Amazon, slept in a cave in Greece, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, learned to cook from a master chef in Tuscany, ridden an elephant in Thailand, partied with Fidel Castro, and crossed the Sahara by Land Rover. She speaks fluent Spanish, basic French and German, and a smattering of Hausa. She considers travel a force for good in the world.
