Although Corinne responded to my Traveler Tuesday interview questions, she is really part of a team, as her husband and sidekick, Jim is more often than not, by her side. This American couple who doesn’t seem to spend much time in a America, are the passionate pair behind Reflections en Route. For two people who actually aren’t nomadic, they spend a heck of a lot of time on adventures!
Let’s meet travel blogger Corinne!
 When and how did you become a traveler?
I was born a traveler. My mother, back in the 1950s. signed up to teach military children at Air Force bases around the world. She met my father in Ankara, Turkey where they married and had me. They were adventurous and started taking me all over the country immediately. My first camping trip was on the Black Sea when I wasn’t even walking.
 What kind of traveler do you define yourself as?
I would call myself an eclectic traveler. I’ve been doing this over half a century and the way I travel keeps evolving. I’ve taken tours. I’ve backpacked. I’ve done some, albeit very little, luxury travel. Really the only thing I’ve yet to do is take a cruise, and to be honest I’m in no hurry to do that. I’d rather take ferries, trains, or drive. I think driving is my preferred way to travel. That way I’m in complete control of where of going and when I want to stop. Plus, waiting for other people is not my strong point.
 What do you love most about traveling?
I love the “newness” of travel. Even if I’m going to a country I’ve been to countless times before, I plan to do or see something new. I love the motion and the change. I love the idea that the world is not stagnant. It changes; I change. I want to experience those changes. I like the feeling of the unfamiliar. Once I start to feel comfortable someplace, it means I’m ready to go, to move on.
 What do you dislike about traveling?
Nothing. I love it all from start to finish, to memory.
 Why should people travel?
Travel is the best teacher. Who said that? It’s true. It’s taught me to humility, patience, and it has defined who I am.
 Travel essentials – 3 things you always travel with.
I only have one – my camera. I got my first one when my dad returned from Vietnam; I was ten years old. We’ve been inseparable since then.
 If you’re a foodie, what’s your favorite food city? Do you have a restaurant recommendation?
I do love food. All food. I would say my favorite place to eat is France, anywhere in France. Number two would be Turkey. If you haven’t had Turkish food, try it.
 What’s one location on your bucket list?
I have many, but Antarctica!
 Do you have a piece of advice for bloggers starting out?
If you don’t love it, don’t do it. It’s hard work!
