Called by some the “Fairy Godmother of Travel,” Sonia Gil never imagined herself traveling for a living. In fact, if you had told her five years ago that she would not only be traveling but creating travel videos for a fan base of over 11,000 subscribers, she would have scoffed at this accusation, placed her hands in the pocket of her lab coat and continued her plant research at Cornell University. Finding her true passion with languages and travel, “Sonia’s Travels” videos air every Thursday and follow Sonia cracking the code of foreign cities, providing information about city sites, people, language and culture all around the world. Every Monday, watch Sonia discussing all things from exercising on vacation to tips for breezing through TSA at the airport on her vlog. With humor, curiosity and passion, Sonia encourages each of us to put down our maps, open our eyes and take in the true wonder of the places around us.
