New York native. Brooklyn-based seasoned travel hacker and proud girl dad.
JFK/LGA, or EWR if I'm feeling ambitious.
My travel style
I find that taking the path less trodden often leads to the greatest rewards. I've driven to outstanding luxury mountain top retreats in Oman and Georgia, ridden hot air balloons in Myanmar and Turkey, gone on remote scuba dives in Thailand and Mexico and ridden some amazing powder in Andorra and Japan. Think outside the box.
Alila Jabal Akhdar
A sensational destination resort for hiking, stargazing and cultural adventures in Oman’s remote Jabal Akhdar Mountains.
Square Nine Belgrade
In one of Belgrade’s oldest neighborhoods, a wholly modern and upscale stay with a gourmet Euro restaurant and roof terrace sushi spot.
Rooms Hotel Kazbegi
The pristine Caucasus Mountains are the star of the show at this cool-kid hotel with stylish, simple rooms and a huge indoor pool.
Recently returned from:
Admiring the opulence at Dolmabahçe palace in Istanbul.
Finding zen at the Miraval Berkshires.
Taking in some rays on Eagle Beach in Aruba.
Pontooning down the Danube in Belgrade.
Hokkaido for some epic skiing.
Tea tasting in Sri Lanka.
Diving Belize's Great Blue Hole.
The great outdoors of Lake Louise.
What’s one thing you can’t travel without?
Coffee. Find me good espresso and I'll be happy anywhere.
Two truths, one lie:
I spent 31 days backpacking across Peru.
I got regularly mistaken for a local celebrity on the streets of Reykjavík.
I once used an old boarding pass to sneak into first class – and never got caught.
