I am not much of a spa girl. But I have many, many girlfriends that are. I can tell you though that as a resource there is no one better out there than travel blogger Ava Roxanne Stritt of Spa Travel Gal! She is the ultimate resource for all spa-related travel and hosts the weekly #SkincareSunday or #SpaTravel on Twitter and is known for her inside tips which she sends to those who are Ava Insiders.
Let’s meet Ava!

 When and how did you become a traveler?
I have always written and got awards for writing poetry and newspapers articles in HS and College. During these years my mother traveled as a state representative all over the world from Russia during the Cold War – her activities even included sleeping on the Bay of Bengal in a thatched hut – so hearing her stories all during my childhood inspired me to travel.
My travels dreams were not quite as sparse though as hers. I enjoyed reading about ladies that had afternoon tea at The Ritz-Carlton and thus my future was born.
 What is travel to you in 10 words or less?
A way to expand your mind broader than written words could ever inspire.
 What is your favorite mode of transportation and why?
First Class almost anywhere but I am partial to First Class Eurostar from the St. Pancras to Paris for a day of shopping! St. Pancras hotel has a service to take you straight to the train with a bellman.
 What do you typically do while traveling by plane?
 What is your favorite travel memory involving food?
I will have to substitute a drink (or cocktails) at the new Fragrance Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton Berlin.
 What is one blogging tip or lesson that you have learned along the way that you can share with my readers?
Be yourself and not anyone else.
 Where to next?
More spa travels of course possibly Peru.
