During this Celebrity Travel Addicts Q&A we chat with my buddy, professional cinematographer and experienced world traveler Kristen Kellogg from Border Free Travels. Check out the way she started her lifetime of travel, and why she loves visiting off the beaten path destinations and discovering hidden gems.
How did your passion for travel begin?
My best buddy in college took a part in a summer study abroad trip and when she shared her experiences with me and came back, I knew I wanted to travel. After saving up for what seemed like forever I booked a two month solo trip — my first trip overseas — no phone or pc. I knew from the minute I touched down this was the lifestyle for me personally.
Just how many days/weeks are you currently travel in any given calendar year? Which are the kinds of places would you want to see?
I on the street for just two to three weeks home for two or a week. It varies, but now 3/4 of the year ‘m probably traveling.
What is it that you want viewers to gain/ learn in the work posts and films?
I do my very best to share areas people have not heard of prior to or destinations that you would not think to visit first, along with hidden gems, nicely designed boutique and luxury resorts, handmade things, or fantastic food areas in areas at smaller pockets of larger cities or even more famous destinations.
