TBEXers — help me fill in the #10 blank!  The winning respose gets their very own Travelocity Roaming Gnome!  Thanks to all the bloggers, speakers, event organizers and Keystone staff for making Travelocity’s first TBEX so fun, informative and inspirational.  See you in Costa Brava!




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.        



10. Your twitter followers are now friends.


10. Your bull riding “skills” were shown up by a 12-year-old.


@Tiffany, @Andy and @Thomas, love the creativity! Thanks for participating! The winning response came in from Twitter! More gnome contests in the future so stay tuned.


Oh my, I love those hamburger cupcakes! I can’t stand the things in real life, but I’m sure I could manage a few of those!!


@michelle — they were by far the coolest cupcakes I’ve seen. Chef Ned also made tacos and spaghetti and meatballs all from chocolate!


Meatball from choclate would have been so yum:-)
