My travel style

You can usually find me on a hiking trail or doing something in nature. But, by evening, I want to relax and be pampered — find me a pool or jacuzzi, a nice class of wine and a gorgeous view.

After the privilege of enjoying over 20 years as a university professor and administrator, I look forward to transforming from travel hobbyist to travel advisor. With even more tools at my fingertips, I am excited to meet new friends and send them on their dream trips.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Hiking and bird-watching in Scotland (including Shetland) with castle stays. 

  • Hiking and wine-tasting in Portugal (Douro).

  • Staying in a Kasbah in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

  • Wine-tasting and enjoying food adventures in Napa Valley.

Dreaming of:

  • Egypt (Cairo, Nile Tour and the Red Sea).

  • Kyoto, Japan. 

  • Greece (Santorini has its own unique wine region).

  • Hawai'i (once a year just isn't enough!).

One thing I can't travel without...

Hiking boots (and poles, too).

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I was denied boarding for a flight to Kenya because my visa showed the start / end date on the same day.

  2. I spent an afternoon in Parliament listening to Tony Blair when I joined the wrong queue for the entry to Westminster Abbey. 

  3. I fell out of a kayak while entering a sea cave in Sardinia.
