In today’s Celebrity Travel Addicts Q&A we interview my friend and fellow Miamian, Sydne Summer of Sydne Style. I have known Sydne for most my life as she went to high school with my sister and we stayed in touch when she moved to California. Inspired by her experience as a fashion editor and celebrity correspondent, Sydne founded her blog and has since become a go-to source for effortless travel style. Meet Sydne, check out her Top 5 List for Paris, and where in the world she’s headed to next!
How did your passion for travel get started?
I grew up traveling with my parents. I’d always look forward to our family vacations whether it was a cruise to the Caribbean or horseback riding in Colorado.
How many days/weeks are you traveling in any given year? What are the types of places do you like to visit?
Last year I traveled for about 1/3 of the year. Growing up in Miami, I’m a beach girl at heart. My favorite vacations are generally by the water but Paris will forever be my favorite city.
What is it that you want audiences to gain/ learn from your work videos and photography?
I hope that my travel helps inspire my readers on new destinations to try as well as guide them on what to pack and where to stay when traveling.
