• Travel favorites: Movies and motor taxis

    CWT Savvy Traveler
    What do you love about travel? Is there something about experiencing a new culture, exploring a new city, or meeting new people that energizes you?

    We’re excited to launch a new series looking at what travelers enjoy as the highlights of hitting the road. We start with a conversation with Barbara Keek, digital specialist on CWT’s global digital marketing team. Barbara comes to us from the Netherlands with a quick peek at a few of the things she loves about travel.

    Savvy: What are one or two of your favorite things about travel – either traveling for business or leisure?
    Barbara: Usually on intercontinental flights they play some of the newest movies. As I can’t really sleep on the plane, I love to watch as many movies as I can. Another thing I like to do is to visit local sports stores in search of cool new sneakers that can’t be found at home.

    Savvy: Do you have a favorite travel experience to share from one of your trips?
    Barbara: I have so many great experiences! One experience that was really cool, was last year when I went to Paris for business.  I arrived at Gare du Nord (train station) and wanted to get a taxi. To my big shock, there was a looong line of maybe 50 or more people already waiting for a taxi and it would for sure take an hour before it was my turn. A guy asked me politely if I was interested in taking a motor taxi. After some hesitation, I decided to give it a try and it was a great experience. There’s even room for a suitcase on the back!

    Thanks to Barbara for her contributions! We look forward to meeting you back here with more travel favorites. And we’d love to hear what you love about travel in the comments below.

    Safe Travels,


One Responseso far.
