Fun fact about you
Hi I’m Andrea! I’m 22 with a wide range of hobbies and interests. I am currently a freelance portrait and product photographer. The best part about my work is not only meeting a lot of other creative individuals but helping out local brands communicate their vision and brand name #SUPPORTLOCAL! One fact about me that surprises many people I’ve worked with is my dream of becoming a full-fledged lawyer. Right now, I am an incoming law student and hope fully I’m ready for that kind of intellectual challenge!!
What do you like most about traveling?
I am a photographer so taking photos!! I also like cafe-hopping so dream destinations include countries or cities with a nice pool of cafes. But at the same time I’d like to think I’m pretty observant so I also enjoy sight-seeing and people watching (not in a creepy way). I like discovering different cultures and common mannerisms. Oddly, I also like getting to know how things work, like the rules and policies (NERD ALERT) in other countries to get insight on how to improve our country. hahaha
What do you do when you're not traveling?
Work and save money to be able to travel again hehehe. During free time I go on road trips, watch Netflix, jog/run (cardio girl!), and catch up with friends in artisan restaurants and cafes
Any surprising things you bring with you when you travel?
A PRINTED COMPREHENSIVE ITINERARY I PERSONALLY PREPARED!! It contains a schedule of activities per day. It also contains a list of cafes, restaurants, activities to do, and shopping spots. Not super strict with this though but I like to come prepared. My skin’s pretty sensitive too and reactive to different weather conditions so i bring a lot of skincare!
What's the last trip you took?
Last international trip was Bali Indonesia! Perfect for island girls and faux-island girls like me! If you love tropical restaurants, cafes, sunset bars, amazing beaches and cultural places, THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE. Last local trip is Sundowners Zambales! Also one for the books!
Favorite hotel/accommodation you've stayed at
This villa we booked in Bali, Indonesia! :-)
What's the one place you keep going back to:
Definitely will go back infinite times (if finances allow) to Israel! It’s the perfect mix of city and island trip!
Top 3 places on your must-visit list:
Morocco, New Zealand and Greece.
What do you like most about Wink?
THEIR SERVICE AND THEIR AMAZING NURSE THERAPISTS! They’re very accommodating, approachable and most of all they remember you!
How does Wink help you with your travels?
Wink helps me keep my body photo-ready for all my planned and spontaneous travels and trips in and out the country! Aside from this, Wink also helps in rejuvenating my skin after traveling. Constant traveling could be really harsh to your skin so I make sure that I go to my monthly laser-whitening session in Wink to get rid of friction marks on my skin.
