What scares you most about traveling?
 Nothing about travel scares me. I enjoy everything about it.

What excites you most about traveling?
 The unknown, the newness of each place, meeting different kinds of people, being away from the normal routine of life, and the feeling of freedom to see and try new things. And, no cell phones.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?
 I would love to visit Switzerland and see the Swiss Alps! They look awesome from pictures and to be able to ski and stay in a remote place on top of mountains.

Gonzales firefighting twins to appear on CBS's 'The Amazing Race'

GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -
Twin brothers who are Gonzales firefighters will appear in the next season of the CBS reality show "The Amazing Race," CBS announced Monday.

Daniel and Eric Guiffreda, 33, have both been with the Gonzales, LA Fire Department for eight years.

Eric said he lives in Prairieville and Daniel lives in Gonzales, but they are originally from Ponchatoula. He also said both of them served in the Marines and have deployed to Iraq. He added his brother is actually going back into the military as an Air Force chaplain.

Eric said his family has watched the show for years and his wife is the one who encouraged them to send in a submission. He added they did, but did not get a call back until 14 months later.

Although he could not reveal much about the locations where the show was filmed or what happens, he was able to give a few comments.

"I’m excited for everybody to be able to see the different places we experienced,” Eric Guiffreda said. "I wish everyone could do it at least once. It’s unique to see the world and not worry about anything."

He said he and his brother competed against world champion skiers, NBA players, and competitive eater, Joey Chestnut.

"We competed against some really good people. We’re all really good friends," Eric added.

He also said he and his brother were able to bring some Louisiana flair to the show.

"They picked on the way we talk a lot," Eric said jokingly.

I thought i wouldn't like them, but they survived and this is cool, because they are nice guys and have been nice to other people on the race. I'm happy they survived today.
