Eileen Rhein is an incredibly inspiring woman hailing from western Canada but is now based in New York City.  Not only is she a successful social media travel influencer but she’s also a tough NYC lawyer, adrenaline junkie, yoga enthusiast, professional dancer, and classical violinist.  We were blown away by her ambition and passion to live life to the absolute fullest.  You may be wondering how someone accomplishes so much.  She shared one tip; she keeps an ongoing to-do list on her phone to help be as productive as possible with her life.  Eileen has traveled to over 60 countries and as a result is overflowing with loads of practical travel advice but also a rare joie de vivre.  She’s diligent about answering any travel questions you might have and shared with us during the interview how to research free layovers.  Listen in to hear how she got started and what drives her to be the inspiration that she is today.
