- Food & Wine,
- Solo Travel
A champagne girl on a sparkling water budget. Based in California with my passport at the ready, I love to maximize my budget to create the affordable luxe of my daydreams.
OAK for domestic. SFO for international.
My travel style
I believe there is travel and then there are vacations, and a healthy balance makes the most memorable trips! Give me a cozy hotel room, a few hours to conquer jet lag and then I am out walking the city, taking in everyday life, before making my dinner reservation and evening show.
Designer digs in the historic Gold Coast, with a glamorous mid-century style from rooms to rooftop restaurant, and a bonus pet-friendly policy.
$25 hotel credit per room, per day.
Guaranteed 2pm check out.
Upgrade to next room category, based upon availability at check-in.
The Read House
Stylish property from 1872 with refined rooms and suites offering views of downtown Chattanooga.
Sophisticated hotel in Lower Manhattan with upscale rooms, some with furnished terraces.
Recently returned from:
Dancing under the full moon in Zion National Park, Utah.
Braving those New Year Eve crowds at the most magical place on earth – Disneyland *cue the fireworks*.
Dancing with the fairies and indulging in the finest, peatiest whiskey on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.
Enjoying boat days and boozy nights down in the heart (and heat) of Austin, Texas.
Antarctica – I want to see penguins and glaciers and step onto my seventh continent.
Greece – swimming in that turquoise water, dancing under the stars and enjoying all the hummus and tzatziki I can get.
Machu Picchu – taking the train though, no multi-day trek for me!
Jordan – Petra and an overnight desert stay are calling my name.
One thing I can't travel without...
Noise canceling headphones.
Two truths, one lie:
One day in the Amazon rainforest, I ate piranha for breakfast. Tasted like chicken.
I saw Robert Pattinson at Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
The most steps I ever took in one day was hiking the Camino Santiago in Spain.
