Always hungry for gelato and often guilty of planning the next trip while on one already. Newly based in Singapore with my husband and kiddo.
My travel style
Hours of advanced research ensure my itineraries capture fun, authentic experiences that become part of my family's travel lore – like the time we lit a hundred lanterns in Luang Prabang, Laos to mark the end of Buddhist Lent. Pure magic. My personal rules for travel: book key experiences in advance but leave room for tips from locals, be it the concierge or the bartender. Always savor the golden hour, beverage-of-choice in hand. And don't rush a destination. Check in for a minimum of three nights.

I met Russell Crowe's agent at a tapas bar in San Sebastian.
I spent six months working on a vineyard in Croatia.
