Travel style

I was inspired to travel by my grandparents. My grandpa was in international business and had been to 146 countries throughout his lifetime, so now I try to visit at least one new country each year. His experiences were so inspiring and unique, and I believe that life is all about the memories you create while experiencing the world.

I've always like to travel in luxury, but that hasn't always been in my budget, so I'm all about getting the most bang for your buck. Whether that's splurging on a nice hotel or finding a high-value boutique hotel that feels luxurious on a more reasonable budget.

When I plan a trip to a new destination, I spend hours researching to find the perfect jam-packed itinerary with all the best sites and experiences. I love to go off the beaten path to try new food and adventurous experiences. I once asked a cab driver to take me to his favorite restaurant (the beer fajitas were incredible).
