You may realize this week’s celebrity travel addict, Courtney Scott on The Today Show, CNN, along with the Steve Harvey Show. Since ditching the nine-to-five lifestyle back in 2007, Courtney’s been busy hosting her show, Let us Roam to get Travelocity. Here she talks about her favourite destinations and in which we could expect from her next!
When and why did you decide that you wished to make a career from travel?
Somewhere between watching GlobeTrekker within my room for a kid, and taking a traveling writing course during my study abroad year in New Zealand, I realized that there was a travel career the way forward.
How many days/weeks are you travel in any given year?
I have been a traveler, along with a fulltime vagabond — someplace in between works. I’m happiest becoming a plane at least once every month!
You have covered many destinations for your project as part of Let us Roam. What was the most exotic?
The land of sweet baby sloths, colombia , heavenly beaches lush jungles, along with hot salsa clubs.
Your traveling experience?
Quitting my job and reserving a one-way ticket to teach English. I had a speech and the title of my boss scribbled on a shred of paper, which I still have to this day. I believed it could happen to be a scam, but it wasn’t. It was great. Life has never been the same. Not enough! Never enough!
How many countries have you been around?
Not enough! Never enough!
Name your top 3 destinations (one Historical, one gastronomic, and one picturesque)
Historic – Angkor Wat in Cambodia
Give us your’Top 5′ list for a number of the above destinations, such as, for instance, a mini-guide or even to-do listing of types (it can be anything like a restaurant you urge, a unique resort, action, etc..)
Gastronomic – Italy
What destination would you you end up returning to again and again? What about it is really sexy?
Picturesque – Montenegro
Your favourite traveling movie?
Five Must-Try Foods Around Italy:
Favourite restaurant at the U.S.?
It’s Italy and here’s why.
Favourite city at the U.S.?
Cinema Paradiso, no question.
That’s tough. I can not really narrow it down to just a person but I Really like The Insulation in NYC, Antica Pesa at Brooklyn, Lure Fishbar (Miami or NYC), Gjelina at Abbott Kinney. I’m 100 percent Italian, so it goes without saying that my favourite eatery is actually my grandma’s kitchen.
Favourite airport in the world?
New York City.
I was born in Long Island and when I’m not living abroad, I’m living in Brooklyn. I have been to several other U.S. cities but nowhere very contrasts for me. There’s always something new to find in New York City, even in the event you’ve lived here for 10 years….50 years.
It is not a restaurant; it is an wonderful cocktail bar named Lidkoeb at Copenhagen.
Place with the most friendly folks?
Bangkok International Airport is pretty mad. It has one of the airport terminals on the planet.
If your journeys had a soundtrack what record would it be?
I do have a favourite airline, but I fly Delta most often.
Kindle, Nook, or Even i-Pad?
I think there’s a direct correlation between living in an island and being favorable. Some of the most friendly folks I met traveling were at Fiji and Curacao.
While traveling, most powerful person you’ve met?
I have a tendency to become fixated on particular styles based on the states I see. I could not stop listening to Carlos Vives after my trip to Colombia, Zvonko Bodgdan after my trip to Serbia and Finnebassen after my trip to Amsterdam. Obviously my soundtrack could be eclectic, and inevitably something I have found on Soundcloud.
A destination which exceeded your expectations and surprised you the most?
You have completed several TV appearances of Friends & Fox and The Now Show. What is your segment?
At the sake of sounding cheesy, I feel. Anyone with a story to tell — I’m all ears.
Your best piece of travel advice?
The attractiveness of that trip, was I had no expectations. But anything was far exceeded by New Zealand even my wild imagination could conjure up!
Actually it turned out to be a spontaneous”After The Show” segment. The producer asked me to stay around after my routine segment along with the anchors and I listened to my travels. It was unrehearsed.
What are five things you can never travel without?
Don’t procrastinate. If not now? When?
What is your dream destination?
Friendships and relationships Certainly become Harder.
What jobs are you?
Rohto eye drops for extended flights resistance booster and EBOOST power , Origins GinZing face lotion, Google Maps App!
Your favourite traveling quote?
Africa…all of it.

I saw this one recently and it made me smile.
