On the Road With...
Detroit’s Swin Cash

Good thing for frequent flier rewards programs, because Swin Cash is sure earning some free flights anywhere she wants to go.Since graduating from college four years ago, the All-Star Shock forward has been around the country and the world for basketball and to launch her new foundation and company. She won a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Athens, Greece in 2004, not to mention the preparation tour in advance of that summer. And this year, she has already been to Hungary, Poland and Australia competing with USA Basketball. So beyond the gossip magazines, how does this global explorer stay grounded and where would she like to go next?

Q. What are some of your favorite countries you've gotten to travel to?
"Australia is really beautiful, but Italy is one of my favorites. I saw Rome and had the opportunity to see the Pope. I also got to Cuba, which is definitely something I would have never gotten to do in my lifetime. And Greece was amazing in and of itself. Of course, everyone saw me get emotional on television, so I'll never live that one down."

"I've never been to the Bahamas or a beach type place. I would love to just go to an island somewhere."
