About

An insatiable culture sponge – especially for culinary travel. I also own and operate an award-winning tour company in New Orleans.

My travel style

I travel a lot, and I like to do it all – luxury, off-the-beaten-path, beach, city, budget and points. Above all, I like to learn about cultures and discover what’s unique about that location. I believe that food and its preparation tells the story of the people – their beliefs, struggle, community, climate and evolution. That’s why I take food tours, try cooking classes and visit markets wherever I go. You can taste so many layers of history in regional cuisine. I also seek out cultural music and performing arts.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Discovering ancient and modern Egypt in Cairo, Luxor and Sinai Peninsula.

  • Relaxing in the southern charm of Savanna, Georgia. 

  • Eating my way around the Big Island of Hawaii.

  • Learning of the birth of Christianity, yogurt and so much more in Istanbul, Türkiye.

  • Attending Broadway shows in Midtown Manhattan.

  • Sightseeing around Seattle before embarking on an Alaskan cruise.

Dreaming of:

  • Riding a hot air balloon in Cappadocia, Türkiye.

  • Eating salteñas, meeting my in-laws and seeing the famous salt flats in Bolivia.

  • Taking tango lessons in Argentina.

  • Eating cheap, delicious food in Vietnam.

  • Walking along The Cotswolds Way in the UK.

  • Hiking throughout France, Italy and Switzerland on the Tour du Mont Blanc.

One thing I can't travel without...

My kindle and pants with zippered pockets.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I spent three weeks in Tahiti with nothing but a 17” backpack.

  2. I made scrambled eggs with Gordon Ramsay.

  3. I attended Stephen Hawking’s funeral at Westminster Abbey by accident.
