Follow Friday: Introducing Rachel Samanyi

Hello there, Trovers!

Today, we want to introduce you to Rachel Samanyi: our Follow Friday-er for this week.


Hometown: Born in Tanzania. Currently lives in Seattle, Washington.

Occupation: Occupational Therapist.

Do you prefer solo travel, couples travel, or travel with friends? Why? I prefer to travel with my husband and our adorable dog Coco (a Lhasa Apso). Traveling with him makes me feel more safe and that I’m not alone when exploring these new places. I also love the fact that I get to experience these cool places with my husband.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live? Zanzibar (a beautiful tropical island in East Africa).

What’s your craziest travel mishap story? Went chasing Auroras (Northern Lights) in the Okanogan Forest one time. The weatherman said we are going to have clear skies that night and the chance of seeing the Northern Lights was excellent from that area. When we got there, we got hammered with the craziest snow ever! Didn’t see anything that night! But we were able to see the Auroras the following night!  It was breathtaking. I’ll never forget that night.

Why do you like Trover? It’s so cool! It has helped me to discover these cool places that I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to!

When traveling, it is most important to…always prepare yourself for anything and most of all— just have fun!
