My travel style
Solo traveling hostel-goer and couples traveling luxury hotel explorer! Staying as far off-the-beaten-path as possible, while trying to avoid state department travel warnings. Lifetime Marriott Platinum by the age of 33. If you are curious about staying somewhere – chances are that I’ve been there!
Marina Bay Sands Singapore
A beacon of urban glitz and glamor, and home to the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool.
Historic property from 1778 set on 11,000 acres of forest with warm, cozy cottages.
Marriott Mena House, Cairo
Just outside Cairo, this vast luxury sleep has an ornate style, an 18-hole golf course, heated pool, three international restaurants, and direct views of the Pyramids.
Recently returned from:
Taking a multi-generational family trip in Egypt from Alexandria to Abu Simbel by plane, tuktuk and sailboat.
Enjoying coffee and cervezas around Lago Yojao in Honduras.
Island hopping in search of the perfect sunset in Greece.
Adventuring around Guyana, French Guinea and Suriname.
Dubrovnik, Croatia to relive some Game of Thrones.
Hiking through Tierra del Fuego.
River rafting through Laos.
One thing I can't travel without...
Noise canceling headphones.
Two truths, one lie:
I once received a thorough full body examination by Egyptian Customs.
I paid $700 for a bottle of champagne in Bangkok, Thailand.
I shared a Marriott members lounge with Roberto Dinero for weeks and did not recognize him.
