ELISABETH TIMPONE: FAVORITE HOTEL ELISABETH TIMPONE: FUNNY MOMENT
  f you were stranded on an island and had to choose one notable figure from the past or present to be there, who would it be and why?
Oliver Jeffers. I saw him speak at once and it was incredibly inspiring. Check out Creative Mornings. It’s a free monthly talk that happens in cities all over the world. I would highly recommend attending one. He is an incredibly talented artist and storyteller who seems like he’d be a fun, laid back, entertaining person to be stranded with for a bit.
 
If you could create a fictional destination combining elements from real places around the world, what would it include? 
Doesn’t NYC have it all? …Kidding. If I could be surrounded by fresh food, really good live music, strong coffee, beautiful landscapes, giant fish that could tell me stories, tree houses, pretty Paris streets for nightly walks, avocado trees, mountains, hammocks, coconuts, ocean sounds, ancient temples and colorful Indian fabric.
 
Where would you go if you could experience a place during a different era?
I’d like to experience life with the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest coast. There art has always been incredibly inspiring to me and it would be amazing to learn more about their culture and their traditions.
