My travel style
I like to travel with a sustainable and ethical mindset. My first travel experience abroad was a 10 day sister city exchange program between my hometown and a small city now called Takeo in Japan – I have been enthralled with travel ever since. I'm interested in experiencing the culture of a place – particularly through food and connecting with locals – but I love to branch out into new adventures. Such as spontaneously getting invited to an underground metal scene in Vienna or going wine tasting on a bike in the countryside alongside the Danube. While some of my best experiences have been in hostels chatting with hostel owners, I also enjoy luxury hotels when traveling with my husband.

One thing I can't travel without...
A great pair of walking shoes – nothing beats being open to stumbling on an adventure while wandering a new place.
Two truths, one lie:
I got lost taking the train from Rome to Venice.
I slept under the stars in the deserts in Morocco and Israel.
I was too scared to try haggis in Scotland.
