What excites you most about traveling? Seeing the places that I used to dream about and see on screensavers as a kid in real life.

The home of the happiest people on earth. I would love to see its sights, experience its culture, meet its people and live on Fiji time for a few weeks.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Accomplishing a dream I had growing up of traveling the world, seeing the sights, experiencing the culture, meeting the people of the world and tasting its cuisine.
