A former physician who, as of last January, became a full-time travel writer and blogger, Cacinda of Points and Travel is doing what many people only dream of. She is completely addicted to travel. Even while continuing her own practice she made travel a priority and she has been to over 60 countries and has marked many bucket-list items off her list. Her sweet spot is “value luxury” which is as she describes it “finding the sweet spot where luxury and value intersect.”
Let’s meet Cacinda!
 When and how did you become a traveler?
I hired a business manager to help me with my clinic when I got out of grad school. He was like the medicine man from Eat, Pray, Love, I say jokingly, in that he was the one who said to me that I must travel every 6 weeks of my life because I was working so hard in the clinic that he thought I would get burned out. So, that is what I have done for over 20 years, traveled every 6 weeks of my life as a lifestyle choice.
 What is travel to you in 10 words or less?
It is like a box of chocolates…delicious. amazing. sweet, savory, addicting, flavorful, awesome, powerful, decadent and rich.
 What is your favorite mode of transportation and why?
By air, it gets me halfway across the world in 8 hours or less!
 What do you typically do while traveling by plane?
Sleep, or work.
 What is your favorite travel memory involving food?
My recent experiences in Mexico with molecular gastronomy were quite unusual.
 What is one blogging tip or lesson that you have learned along the way that you can share with my readers?
Don’t listen to others about what it is you do, do what you do, Each of us has a gift and of course, we can learn from others, but never think there is only one way to do anything. As Mark Twain said in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court in 1889: “She was wise, subtle, and knew more than one way to skin a cat”.
