TRACEY’S TRIP TIPS

HOW TO TRAVEL LIKE A TRAVEL ED­I­TOR:

“If you step into a new place with fresh eyes and an in­quis­i­tive na­ture, the ad­ven­ture just hap­pens.”

FA­VORITE BEACH SNACK: “Crin­kle French fries with a hefty squirt of ketchup across them.”

ROOKIE TRAVEL MIS­TAKE: “Stay­ing put. There’s noth­ing wrong with plant­ing your­self in a groovy lounge by a beau­ti­ful pool with a view of the Caribbean, but if that’s all you do, you should’ve just built a pool in your back­yard.”

Natalie Martin Fiore Maxi in Mauve Zigzag, $330; na­tal­iemartin col­lec­tion.com “I wore this ev­ery night host­ing cock­tails on the Coastal Liv­ing cruise, and I al­ways felt chic in it.”
