Nicole’s love of travel began with her father’s family educational “road trips” across America. The bug for travel only intensified, and Nicole answered the call with her explorations to Africa, Southeast Asia, Central and South America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Nicole says her most remarkable memories have been the views from atop Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and Uluru in Australia.
