Charles was kind enough to answer some of our travel questions below.
Charles: More than 25. I was looking for excitement away from work and loved exploring new places.

Charles: I am still researching that. :D Just this past year, I have been to Galapagos, Lapland (Finland), and many other places that are amazing.
Charles: Trite but my sense of adventure
Charles: Be flexible
Charles: I slept on a golf course the night before my 30th birthday.
Charles: Calf brain paté. Part of a culinary experience with Chef Anthony, the head of cuisine for Viking Cruises. So much amazing food and drink.
Charles: Pack as little as possible and buy what you need/want at the destination. Rather than stressing about your toothpaste, have some fun shopping at local markets.
Charles: I think most travelers over plan their itineraries. Most of my vivid travel memories are from serendipitous experiences thus I try to not plan whenever possible.
Charles: Drives me crazy when people eat at fast food chains that they can visit at home. Get out and try local fresh food!
Charles: Mississippi Gulf Coast. Magnificent beaches, amazing 500 year old oak trees, fresh seafood (shrimp capital of the world), quirky and artsy people and vibe, and so much more.
