Kerri Nicolich, Senior Account Manager
I manage some of our key accounts, ensuring we provide them with a great trip experience!
How long have you worked at WorldStrides?
Just about three years now.
WorldStrides goes to so many destinations, but what has been your favorite destination that you have visited while working for WorldStrides?
I’ve been lucky enough to travel to a few countries while working with WorldStrides. My favorite destination has been Barcelona, Spain.
What are the top three things you did while in Barcelona?
- Toured Camp Nou stadium.
- Visited Sitges, which is an amazingly beautiful coastal town.
- Watched Vicky Losada and the Women’s FC Barcelona team win the semi-finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League!
What is the number one thing that you would tell somebody to not miss if they visit Barcelona?
Make sure to see La Sagrada Familia, the massive, unfinished church by architect Gaudí. Even if you don’t tour it, it is worth seeing from the outside.
Do you know any weird or strange facts about Barcelona?
If everything had gone to plan, the Eiffel Tower would be in Barcelona. However, Spain rejected the project.
What was your favorite food or drink that you tried while there?
You cannot miss trying the paella in Barcelona – it is famous for it. I had so many great meals, but my favorite was actually an Italian dish, Fettuccine Alfredo. It was actually the best Fettuccine Alfredo I’ve ever had!
Did you buy a souvenir and if so, what was it?
I bought myself a great T-Shirt while shopping in Las Ramblas, a tree-lined, pedestrian street in central Barcelona.
If you could pick your next trip, where would you go?
Italy has always been on my bucket list. I’ll have to try the Fettuccine there, too!
What is the best travel tip that you can pass along to customers?
When packing, roll your clothes! It helps you fit more in your suitcase.
