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.
