Advisor - Brandi Shawn-Chaparro


Scotland-obsessed, architectural historian, art lover, dark academia, goth-loving cemetery explorer. LA-based, UK-addict, seeker of the next great bookshop.

Home airports

BUR anytime it's feasible, LAX when it can't be helped.

My travel style

I love history and architecture, chasing the human past through the UK, spending time with stone, stained glass and in graveyards. Learning about life from generations past through unique, spooky, historical trips. Staying in luxurious and unique accommodation while being transported to another time where you can lose yourself and truly escape.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Chasing ghosts in the cemeteries of Edinburgh.

  • Early morning pan dulce at LA's best Mexican bakeries.

  • Following the Emperor's footsteps in Vienna.

  • Drinking my way through the Scottish Highlands.

Dreaming of:

  • Prague.

  • San Juan de los Lagos.

  • Shetland Islands.

  • Iceland's black sand beaches.

What’s one thing you can’t travel without?

I can't travel without my soft top waterproof boots.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I went on tour with the legendary punk band, The Damned.

  2. I've been accused of witchcraft in Scotland.

  3. I discovered a viking hoard on a metal detecting trip.
