Title: Founder, Jetset Christina Luxury Travel Blog

City you live in: I base a few months of the year in California, a few months in Bali, Indonesia and other than that I’m in a suitcase traveling full-time.

Most recent city visited… Medellin, Colombia.

A typical day in my life includes… If I’m in-between trips, my day looks like working out, making a big coffee (mixed with bulletproof vanilla collagen – so good and good for you!), then getting to work. Work for me is any combination of writing blog posts for JetsetChristina.com, pitching partners, planning trips, answering endless emails, interviews like this one, other various projects, and working on my swimsuit line – Watercolors! If I’m on the road traveling, it’s vacation. Even though I travel all the time, I firmly believe that in order to give you all the best of the best travel recommendations, traveling for me can never be work. I need to experience every place just like you would! Not as an influencer – as a vacationer! Even though I’m technically “working” by traveling, I don’t touch ANY work on vacation (except to take and share pictures on Instagram, which has always been fun for me)

I was born… In San Francisco, California.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… A newscaster, or absolutely anything that worked with animals.

My first job was… Running a lemonade stand.

My favorite thing about traveling is… Making so many places around the world “home.”

My favorite type of travel is… A beautiful view, a luxury resort, and a good glass of wine at sunset with my fiance.

I’m currently listening to… Lots of podcasts. My favorites are “How I Built This” and the “Skinny Confidential.”

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… The person who invented the infinity-edge pool, so I can thank them profusely.

One thing I cannot travel without… My camera!

I’m inspired by… Every entrepreneur.

The one person who motivates me the most is… My fiancé Kenny, founder of the resort-wear brand Kenny Flowers.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… Selflessly, poverty. Selfishly, faster transportation and flying times.

The perfect day would be…  Wake up in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives with my fiancé, huge breakfast in bed, jump in the ocean & soak up the sun all day, snorkel, read a really good book, then end the day with a sunset sail and a bottle of Du Mol chardonnay.

My favorite place I’ve visited… The Maldives.

My top 3 bucket list destinations… Right now they are: African safari, Argentina and Portugal.

My life… Is more than I could have ever wished for.

I’m currently working on… My 2020 collection for Watercolors Swim – bikinis!!!!

Always… Look on the sunny side.

Never… Give up.

Favorite quote… “If everything feels in control, you’re not going fast enough.” – Mario Andretti.

Biggest dream… To have a line of luxury resorts.

My pet peeve(s)… Slow walkers.

My favorite instagram accounts to follow… @tashoakley, @taramichellebrose @jyo_shankar @watercolorsswim.
