My travel style
I'm all about experiencing the history, culture and culinary traditions of each place I visit. As an Italophile, my favorite thing in the world is exploring new and old parts of Italy, as well as eating all the food. I love building full, detailed itineraries and planning the perfect trip, but I also love going with the flow once I arrive at a destination and not stressing over the itinerary too much. That's how you have the best adventures! I am knowledgeable about historical sites, art history, food, wine, leisure travel, luxury hotels, budget travel, outdoorsy activities, beaches and more. I know my way around traveling on a budget and how to make the most of one!
