Elan Gale is best known for producing The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but when he’s not sending couples to paradise, Gale plots how to get himself and his girlfriend, actress Molly Quinn, there with the help of Virtuoso travel advisor Stacy Small. “She knows my travel quirks and oddball curiosities,” says Gale, who appreciates how L.A.-based Small plans trips with enough flexibility to accommodate a wild left turn.
“I’m excited to go to Copenhagen, Finland, and Norway. I’m heading to New Zealand this winter. I want to return to Peru – not to see Machu Picchu, but rather, Urubamba, maybe the most magical place on earth. I’ve never seen anything like the salt mines there. I can’t stop envisioning it. Also, Chengdu, China, for the food.”
