The Inspired Traveler – # 10 – April D. Thompson

May 6, 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, we get to discuss the wonders of travel with April D. Thompson, who is the founding editor of The Absolute Travel Addict website.

1)  What is it about traveling that makes you smile?
One of the best things about travel is meeting new people. Despite language, cultural and geographical differences, making connections with people really makes my heart smile.

2)  What is your favorite place in the world?
I like so many places, but I would have to say South Africa, particularly Durban is my favorite to date.  I’m not really sure what it was, but I really felt at home.  It’s just a laid back and friendly beach town with a unique mix of Indian and African culture.

3)  What place would have to pay you to come back and even then you’d have to think about it?
Luckily, I don’t really have any place that I wouldn’t go back to, especially if someone paid me.  My only hesitation would be that there are so many places I haven’t seen yet that I would like to see before repeating some of the places I have already visited.
