My hotel redesign is a redesign of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC.

I love the cultural aspect that comes with traveling. I especially love to travel to environments I’ve never been before, just for the experience. I appreciate the culture shock that accompanies going to new places, and you don’t have to travel all the way to Scotland (which I would love to do) to experience it. Just going to a new friends’ house can be a shock, to see how they live, how their environment differs from your own. I think it’s important to have your own known and comfortable world shaken up. (If you can’t tell, I am a huge fan of cultural anthropology.)

But seriously, I would like to go to Scotland.

And Canada.

And Alaska.

But mostly Scotland.
