Meet the Explorer: Rachel Rudwall
Hometown: Dayton, Ohio
Favorite Food: Chicken saag with garlic naan, avocado, Jimmy John’s Turkey Tom sandwich - lose the sprouts and add Dijon
One musician I’m really into right now: Mumford & Sons - beautiful modern folk from the U.K.
One place I’d really like to visit: Nepal
One thing I can’t travel without: A little notebook to jot down thoughts, e-mail addresses of fellow travellers, train schedules, and whatever else tickles my fancy along the journey.
One thing I miss most when travelling: Guaranteed hot showers
One thing that really scares me: Great white sharks
The most daring thing I’ve ever done: I decided to become a TV producer and host and move to L.A. with little more than ambition.
