Jetsetting With Actress Mircea Monroe

The actress was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and grew up in the South Pacific; she spent time in several different countries before landing back in the United States and eventually settling in Los Angeles. The City of Angels has proven to be the perfect place for Mircea, as she builds on her successful acting career on Showtime’s “Episodes” and the CW’s “Hart of Dixie” as well as other TV and films projects.
Q: What type of traveler are you? (i.e., adventurer, cultural explorer, free spirit, rejuvenator, spa aficionado, etc.)
A: All of the above!
Q: What types of activities do you like to do on your travels? Do you look for a place where it’s quiet and you can relax or someplace that has great activities or nightlife?
A: It depends on what my body needs. Sometimes it’s great to do absolutely nothing and recharge, and sometimes I must explore. But nightlife is never something I care about. A great dinner, however, is always awesome.
Q: When thinking about where you will travel to next, what inspires you to make a decision? And what, if any, research do you do about that destination?
A: Anything I have never done is an immediate “yes”! I tend to do very little research and let it unfold as I get there. Everything always works out.
Q: What is the most memorable trip you’ve taken and why?
A: In June of this year I did Spain, Montenegro, Croatia, Hungary, and England with my boyfriend. I was working in England, so it was a perfect excuse for travel. It was incredible to have the mixture of adventure, exploration, and relaxation with the person I love.
Q: What is the best food you’ve ever found on a trip?
A: I loved this noodle-type thingy in Budapest. Oh man, I have no idea what it’s called but I dream about it. I want some right now!
Q: What, if anything, do you always take with you when you travel?
A: I take my whole bathroom routine, so I always feel at home.
Q: What’s your best piece of travel advice?
A: Unexpected results sometimes lead to the best experiences.
Q: Is there a destination to which you can’t imagine not returning?
Q: Where are your favorite weekend getaways?
A: Northern California is beautiful and relatively easy. I’m obsessed with bed and breakfasts that have animals. Goats are my favorite. How do you not smile when you see a goat?
Q: Where would you like to travel to next?
A: I’m dying for an island!
