My travel style

Living among the people of a culture is my thing. I love to shop at the local cheese/charcuterie shops, frequent farmer's markets and learn how to cook the region's food. I’m a fan and advocate for getting around a city using local transit (i.e. Velib, scooters or walking). I love to discover new restaurants and pair food with great local wines. I enjoy luxury and also small unique places with charm.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Falling in love again with my husband at a magical wedding at Castiglion del Bosco in Montalcino, Italy. 

  • Relaxing on the beach at the Mauna Kea Resort. 

  • Eating my way through the Pintxos bars in San Sebastian, Spain. 

  • Golfing at Cabot Cliffs and Cabot Links in beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

Dreaming of:

  • A safari in South Africa and finding my Cape Town penpal from 40 years ago. 

  • Seeing the Sea Turtles in Tortuguero, Costa Rica. 

  • Exploring glaciers at the very tip of Chile. 

  • Living in France or Spain for a month.

One thing I can't travel without...

My compact, mini-sized, carry-on suitcase (I travel light!).

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I used my twin sister's Canadian passport one time to travel to and from Europe when mine had expired. 

  2. I had a free Paris apartment for ten summers (in my 20s and 30s) and spent two to four weeks each summer discovering the city. 

  3. I forgot my Green Card once while traveling to Mexico, and was detained at the border for four hours and then had to pay a $250 fine once back in the U.S.
