April 15, 2011 • By

Today, we continue our series where we sit down to interview fellow Travel Bloggers and (hopefully) get them to give up some of their best travel tips for you, dear reader.  Next up, the very busy Kelly Lewis, who runs Travel Bug Juice and Go! Girl Guides.

Kelly, looking like she has a secret that she’s contemplating sharing

1)   What is it about traveling that makes you smile?

The people I meet. I’m a huge people person anyway, and I love finding connections with relative strangers while traveling and having adventures that bond you in a way you could never imagine. It’s funny how some people we meet traveling, who we really only spend about a week or so with, become life-long friends. Traveling somehow speeds up the process.

2)   What is your favorite place in the world?

I lived for a year in New Zealand, where I worked for a year with a Lord of the Rings tour company, learned how to snowboard, discovered amazing music, partied it up until 5 am on a routine basis and had some of the best roommates and friends I’ve ever known. So, I’d have to say New Zealand.

3)   What place would have to pay you to come back and even then you’d have to think about it?
