My travel style

Former solo backpacker turned family travel flashpacker – backpacker at heart with a little more cash in the pocket! I always keep my love of exotic and adventure trips alive in my trip planning, even with children in tow. I love everything from bustling cities to off the beaten path middle of nowhere locations. I enjoy a jam-packed travel schedule taking in every experience I can find.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Gorilla Trekking in Uganda.

  • Rekindling my love of adventure travel in Iraq.

  • Backpacking on the John Muir Trail Saudi Arabia and the opening of the country.

  • Trekking in the Andes of Ecuador.

Dreaming of:

  • Backpacking trek in Patagonia.

  • Annapurna Trek in Nepal.

  • Trek in the Dolomites.

  • Hut-to-hut hiking in Switzerland.

One thing I can't travel without...

My wool clothes.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I lived in India for 10 years.

  2. My 12 year old is a better traveler than me when things go wrong. 

  3. I am super organized and tidy at home and in travel.
