Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?
Drew: Mykonos (Greece) is one of my favorite travel spots. I used to actually have a place there and would go every summer. The weather is great, the beaches are amazing and the food is phenomenal. Don't plan on sleeping. The locals and the tourists dance and laugh and stay up all night. From the beach parties to the night spots, it's nonstop.
Jonathan: It's hard for me to narrow it down because I loved Bora Bora for the pure beauty and peaceful atmosphere. I didn't want to leave Florence -- the history and architecture is incredible. But as I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic, I have to give my heart to Paris. It is an amazing city that excited the soul. Stroll the softly lit streets at night and find an endless amount of lively bistros packed full of friendly folks from around the globe, who are more than willing to meet a stranger.
Q. What untapped destination should people know about?
Jonathan: Belize had some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling I have ever done. The locals were friendly and the Belize beer was refreshingly delicious.
Q. What was the first trip you took as a child?
Drew: We traveled to Scotland to visit our family. We toured the castles, cathedrals and brushed up on all our Scottish history.
Q. What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?
Jonathan: I don't think you can truly appreciate where you came from unless you have experienced how other cultures live. Travel has made me a more humble person with a better perspective on life.
Q. Where are your favorite weekend getaways?
Jonathan: It's hard to beat New York for a quick weekend getaway. There's always something happening and somewhere to go.
Drew: I always have fun in San Francisco. There is a lot of sightseeing and great restaurants that you can easily pack into a weekend.
Q. Where is the most romantic destination?
Drew: Laying on a white sand beach in the Caribbean is the perfect backdrop for a romantic setting. I may even mix up the drinks.
Jonathan: Going back to Paris, there's just romance in the air. You can feel it and whether you're with somebody you love or you meet somebody new, sparks are going to fly!
Q. Where have you traveled to that most reminded you of home?
Drew: We were born in Vancouver, which is lush and green and seems carved out of the forest. When traveling through Scotland, I am constantly reminded of the beauty back home.
