The Liberty are now in the middle of their first three-game road trip of the season, which features stops in Chicago, San Antonio, and Connecticut.
WNBA.com’s Brian Martin caught up with Liberty forward Shameka Christon to discuss her travel experiences and what she enjoys most about her own WNBA city.
Q. What are some of the most interesting places you've been able to travel to, either for basketball or on personal trips?
I played in Madrid, Spain and I really liked that; that was a lot of fun.
Q. What is one place you haven't been that you would like to see?
Bora Bora is one place that I haven’t been that I really want to see. I’ve heard great things about it. My teammate Shay [Doron], she’s been there and she’s shown me pictures, so I really want to go there.
Q. What is your favorite place to go on vacation?
Honestly, sad to say, I have not been able to take a vacation. Every time I went out of the country or went somewhere it was for basketball so it wasn’t necessarily for vacation.
Q. Do you get to enjoy the different countries while you are there?
Not really. Unless I’m playing there for the entire seven months, then that’s the only time and that’s only been Spain.
Q. What are your favorite WNBA cities to visit?
I love Phoenix. It’s really warm and we stay in a really nice place. I really like the warm weather.
Q. Aside from basketball, what do you like to do most in your WNBA city?
I love to shop. I really like Fifth Ave.
Q. Any particular stores?
Just the whole Fifth Avenue is great.
Q: What are the best places to dine out in your city?
That one’s hard. I’ve actually got a few places, but as a team we go to Cheesecake Factory a lot, so I guess that would have to be one of them. For me personally, I love food so that’s kind of hard to say. I like sushi and there’s a Sushi Samba on Park that’s really good.
