Favorite city: Cambridge, UK

Oxford’s not so bad either. But I also like lots of other cities throughout the United Kingdom, from Banff in northern Scotland to Glastonbury and Bath in the south.

Favorite island: Corsica

It has everything from glaciers to beautiful beaches.

Favorite beach: Hawaii

I want to go to Hawaii to see the grave and the home of ­pilot Charles Lindberg in Kipahulu. But I also want to experience the beaches.

On the bucket list: Uluru, Australia

I’ve been to Australia, but I dream of seeing Uluru – the red rock in the desert.
