My travel style
Primarily off-the-beaten-path, occasional luxury, with a strong emphasis on food and adventure experiences. Discovered a love for camping and hiking during the pandemic.
Zeavola Resort & Spa
On the northern tip of Koh Phi Phi, this romantic, sustainable beach escape sits on an impossibly pretty white-sand beach.
Anjajavy L Hotel
A celebration of Madagascar’s wild nature, with just 24 villas flanked by jungle and the gin-clear Indian Ocean.
Designer destination for a peaceful escape, close to Mexico’s surf mecca Puerto Escondido.
Recently returned from:
Self-drive safari, skeleton coast and sand dunes in Namibia.
Reef fishing and snorkeling at the Belize Barrier Reef.
ATV beach hopping in Mykonos.
Palace hopping in India's Golden Triangle.
Grand Circle of National Parks in Utah and Arizona.
Swimming with humpback whales in Tonga.
Northern Lights and dog sledding in Norway.
Temple hopping in Cambodia.
One thing I can't travel without...
Letterfolk trip journal.
Two truths, one lie:
I had a close encounter with a rogue elephant in Zimbabwe.
I judged a camel beauty pageant in Abu Dhabi.
I flipped an ATV at a ranch in Texas.
