My name: Genevieve Shaw Brown. I also answer to Genny and Gen.

How I earn my keep: I work at Travelocity.

Greatest travel lesson learned: I travel for my job, but I've learned work is work, vacation is vacation, and it's best not to try and do both on one trip.

Fondest travel memory: There are so many... but a recent experience was being totally jet-lagged and waking up pre-dawn in Koh Samui, Thailand, and watching the sun rise with my husband on the beach. We talked about what all our friends and family were doing at that very same moment as the sun set back home in New York.

First thing I do in a new place: Peruse the local restaurants and map out my dining strategy for the duration of my trip. Dining strategy = eating at as many restaurants as humanly possible.

First thing I do when I get home: Put a push pin on the destination I just returned from on the map of the world that hangs on the wall above my couch.

Travel ambition: To cover that map completely in push pins.

My most beloved place in the whole world: Cockle Cove Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts.

This comment is about the Universal Studio video (7 1/2 min. long). I wanted to let you know that the song was ANNOYING! Hearing the constant screaming in the song made me mute the video.

My friends recently flew to France to go to Eurodisney. They were very impressed with the themeparks, almost as much as the kids!

I am so happy to see this travelocity video highlighting things to do in Orlando. As a long time Orlando Resident I can vouch there are so many beautiful places to see & exciting things to do outside the Theme Parks. Don’t skip any of the parks but do save a few days to visit Downtown Orlando, some nightlife and our superb restaurants. Enjoy!
