Advisor - Gabriel Leigh


Love fine hotels but am almost as happy at any airport property with a runway view. NYC-born, raised in Japan, living in Sweden with three kids.

Home airports

Stockholm ARN, which I wish was as nice as OSL (but it's still pretty good).

My travel style

On the road my main motivations are tasting food and seeing nature, ideally with a thoughtfully designed hotel thrown in. I'm drawn to remote spots (Greenland, Cape Verde) as much as the world's great capitals (Tokyo, Bogotá). In the end, what I'm after is a wide range of experiences.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Tracking lions in the Masai Mara, Kenya. 

  • Helicoptering around the west coast of Greenland. 

  • Planespotting and sampling local cuisine in Madeira. 

  • Visiting a mostly tourist-free Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

Dreaming of:

  • South Africa with a side-trip to St. Helena. 

  • Faroe Islands. 

  • Patagonia. 

  • Ishigaki at the far southern end of Japan.

One thing I can't travel without...

Noise-canceling headphones.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I once rode a camel into the Sahara. 

  2. I took a helicopter to visit a ruby mine in Greenland. 

  3. I went base jumping in Canaima, Venezuela.
