NOMAD OF THE WEEK : JUDY ROSS : FAVORITE DESTINATIONS
  How do you plan your trip?
I really like to talk to people who have been there and get recommendations. Or even better, people who live in the destination I’m going to. I rarely travel anywhere with just a travel book as a guide. I like to be a bit prepared and then let the surprises work their way in.
 
Any safety tips for female travelers?
Don't walk around in the clouds. Be street smart. If you have a gut feeling, go with it. And I don't wear fancy jewelry when I travel- I think it is the best to stay a bit low-key. Try to fit in a bit with the culture you are visiting.
 
My favorite travel quote by Robert Frost:
“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
