English (native), French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese
Seven continents and 100+ countries visited (so far), 40+ as a solo female traveler. Former location scout and tour guide. Lifelong travel addict. Ready to help you choose where in the world to go next...
I can also make your work trips more fun with hotel ideas and restaurant tips.
Curiosity and discovery define my travel style: I love to see "new" sights, meet native people, learn about their history, eat authentic food, experience local culture (art, architecture, music, festivals, etc.) and try things I haven't done before...
Even during business trips, I have turned them into opportunities to explore places and sample hotels/restaurants.
Lodging can be budget or luxury, but I must have a room with a view.
From big cities to remote Arctic villages, I will always find the best spots to eat and drink!
