4 Travel Channel Stars Talk Home, Souvenirs and Staycations
Samantha Brown, Todd Carmichael, Bert Kreischer and Don Wildman tell us how they maintain a sense of home while on the road, where they display their travel keepsakes and how they like to staycation.
Host of Travel Channel’s Dangerous Grounds
How He Makes a Hotel Room Feel More Like Home: “I travel with my very geeky coffee brew kit. The first act of any day for me is brewing a delicious cup, and I find as long as I do that with my favorite gear, I have a really solid reference point and a sense of home. For these coffees, I always splurge and bring the very best I have.”
His Pre-Trip Rituals: “I have two fully packed identical backpacks ready at any given time. This includes my toiletries, meds, the works, which allows me to fly at the drop of the hat. I can grab one and focus all of my energies on trip research rather than packing.”
His Ideal Staycation: “I'm a fan of the staycation, and do it whenever I can. For me and my family, the swimming pool and barbecue are the features of a killer staycation, topped with blockbuster movies and popcorn at night.”
