Fathom Questionnaire: Josh Abramson

by Josh Abramson

Josh on location in Barcelona.

Hometown: Grew up in Baltimore, but NYC is my hometown.

Occupation: Co-founder of CollegeHumor and BustedTees.

Favorite destinations: Costa Brava, Riviera Maya, Amagansett, and New Orleans.

Dying to visit: Bhutan. (Editor's note: He went! And wrote about it for us.)

Bizare travel rituals: I try REALLY hard to never check a bag.

In-flight relaxation regime: An airplane is the only place I allow myself to read US Weekly.

Always in carry-on: Mi-Fi.

Concierge or DIY? A big fan of having a great travel agent, but still end up doing most of it myself.

See it all or take it easy? A little bit of both.

Drive or be Driven? Depends which side of the road we're talking about.

Travel hero: I wouldn't mind mirroring Anthony Bourdain's itineraries.

Weirdest thing seen on travels: Watching a conservative Midwestern guy freak out while briefly cornered by a family of hippos in Botswana. 

Best hotel amenity: Free spa.

I dream about my meal at Kanesaka in Japan.

Everywhere I go, I check out the local candy selections.

When I arrive in a new place, I learn the lay of the land by printing a map and walking around or renting bikes if possible.

I always bring home nothing. My carry-on was already packed to capacity.

If I never return to West Texas, it'll be too soon because I'm too old to drive across country again.

I travel for the food and to look at pretty things.
