Fun Fact – When not working, Rachael has a knack for getting herself into hilarious situations. Whether it’s accidentally ordering the spiciest dish on the menu or attempting to use a foreign language she’s only learned through Google Translate, Rachael’s travel adventures are always filled with laughter and unforgettable memories. In fact, her travel motto could be summed up as “I came, I saw, I laughed until I cried.”
