      Natasha’s Current Travel Goals

      Natasha credits her love of travel to moving to South Korea at the age of 26. She lived and worked in South Korea for two years, and during that time, she traveled throughout Asia extensively. Since returning to the United States, Natasha has continued to explore new places both domestically and internationally. She hopes to see as much of the world as possible. Travel remains a big priority in her life as she navigates life in her 30s.

      Natasha’s Travel Splurge

      Natasha’s travel splurge is her Priority Pass Select membership (a perk that is included with the Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card). She’s realized that once you get used to relaxing in comfortable airline lounges before flights, you won’t ever want to go back to waiting for flights in the cramped, overcrowded seating areas near the gate.
