What is your favorite place to escape to when you have an opportunity?
Right now I am in an island phase. I have been spending most of my off time in New York City, so I am excited to visit more of the Carribean, plus it is close. I am in love with Jamaica and have fond feelings for Bermuda.
What are three essential items you must have when traveling?
Wrinkle-free spray, lip balm and scented hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works.
If you crash landed on a deserted isle, what are 5 things you couldn't live without (Provided you had food and water)?
I'm not attached to much, so I could probably live without a lot of stuff. What I hope I have? Sunscreen, lip balm, iPhone, a boat and my boyfriend. ;)

Jetsetera started off as a hobby in 2008, and has since evolved into a full-time job. It is ranked in the top travel websites in the world and provides travel tips, guides, stories and merchandise.
What's your favorite beach on the planet?
I love the beaches in Bora Bora. It is truly a picture perfect place.
What elements go into the best travel blogs?
The characteristics of the owner. I am a fan of JohnnyJet, Black Dress Traveler and Wild Junket to name a few. They all embody the spirt and personalities of their owners perfectly!
