Day One on the Job is a Disney Fantasy
I woke up this morning and thought, “Could it be? Could this be the best Monday ever?” I’m Courtney Scott, and today is my first official day as Travelocity’s Senior Travel Editor. Woot! I barely had time to update my Facebook status with the exciting news before I was given my first assignment: a four day cruise aboard the brand new Disney Fantasy.
OK, deep breath. Act cool.
“Sure, I’ll go on the Disney cruise.” I’m a cruise expert. Well, sort of. Well, actually not at all. To be honest, I’m obsessed with travel but if there’s one thing I don’t know it’s cruising. But as luck would have it, I won’t be traveling solo on this maiden voyage. The Travelocity Roaming Gnome has mustered up some energy after his down under adventure and has offered to be my cruising cohort. He promises a smashing good time with the most splendid tiny umbrella drinks on all the high seas. I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship.

My most beloved place in the whole world is: The Motherland, Italy. I never could have predicted how intense my love for Italy would become or how much I would revel in speaking the language. I've probably visited close to 100 Italian cities by now and I never tire of it. Need Italy tips? I'm your gal. Greatest travel lesson learned: You are your best company. I wish more people realized that. Traveling with large groups is fun, but the thrill of landing in a foreign city alone with no rules or schedules to abide by is pure adrenaline. Fondest travel memory: One of my fondest, sweetest memories was meeting my new in-laws for the first time after a 16-hour road trip from Montenegro to Belgrade. It was three in the morning and they were wide awake with anticipation, sitting at the kitchen table with traditional Serbian meats and a glass of red wine for me. A warm welcome, indeed. First thing I do in a new place: Follow the scent of a fresh-roasted bean and head to the nearest, most local-yocal coffee shop. A quick shot of caffeine, a chat with a few locals and then it's off to the races. First thing I do when I get home: Kiss my dachshund, Vucko, then pour over all the photos I've taken. Then wish I could do it all over again. Travel ambition: To inspire more people to get out of their cubicles and into the world.
