Martha Stewart talks travel
This months Martha Stewart Living magazine features an all-new quarterly travel column. amNewYork asked Stewart about her travel experiences:
Is there a place you've always wanted to visit but haven't gotten to yet?
A: There are many places I'd like to travel to, such as the North and South Pole. I would love to see the polar bear migration and Glacier National Park.
What kind of trips do you like best?
A: For me, travel is all about learning new things and finding fresh sources of inspiration. My favorite trips are those on which I discover delicious new dishes and beautiful treasures, become acquainted with little-known customs and traditions, and encounter interesting people, especially artisans, artists and cooks who are passionate about what they do.
What do you like to take home from your travels?
A: When traveling I enjoy exploring local nurseries, gardens and antiques shops. I also love to sample the local cuisine-not just in restaurants that may be well known in the area but in small establishments that may be far off the beaten track. I often find things that inspire my work if it be for our magazines, books or our merchandise lines.
