Anne serves as the Washington, D.C.Philadelphia and Baltimore group editor for Where Traveler. “I escaped law school to become a journalist almost 20 years ago and have never regretted it.” After spending a few years covering crime, government squabbles and quirky personalities for local papers in California, she moved on to magazines, launching a lifestyle title for Asian American women in 2003. “I think the best part of travel is choosing where you’ll go next. There’s so much excitement in learning all about a far-flung locale, planning what you’ll eat and what you’ll do, but most importantly, anticipating what memories you’ll bring home.” Follow her on Instagram at @mrsdaneebs.

Anne’s Take on D.C.: I love that D.C. is a bustling city in every sense but has small-town accessibility. At the same time, as our nation’s capital, it has cosmopolitan elegance. You can meet a diplomat, a deejay, a foreign policy expert or even a politician all in one night.

Most memorable travel experience: Trying not to cry at the magnificent sight of a whale in Bahia Magdalena, watching with wonder stingrays flying out of the water and swimming with playful sea lions off Isla Espiritu during a sailing trip around Baja California

Last notable trip: Exploring the islands and lagoons of southern Thailand

Place you always return to visit: Anywhere in Italy; it’s a magical country and I can’t get enough of the food
