My travel style

Former hotel executive, now travel advisor specializing in women's travel, solo trips that are off-the-beaten-path.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Experiencing a cooking and culture trip in Abruzzo, Italy. 

  • Visiting Spain for the art and culture – Barcelona and Seville.

  • Taking a 14-day cruise around the Baltic Sea, stopping at Stockholm, Copenhagen, Talin, Bergen and finishing the trip in Iceland.

  • Relaxing on a solo spa wellness vacation in Mexico – temazcal ritual with a shaman.

Dreaming of:

  • Kyoto, Japan to experience an authentic onsen.

  • Culture and cooking trip to the Le Marche region of Italy.

One thing I can't travel without...

Electric travel kettle for tea and coffee.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I've traveled to every country in South America except Venezuela and Paraguay. 

  2. My favorite country to visit is Spain. 

  3. I speak Italian.
