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.
Hotel Il Pelicano
This discreet Porto Ercole hideaway spills down Monte Argentario into a beautiful cove, while it’s rooms drip with bougainvillea and feature gorgeous sea views.
$100 resort credit.
Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.
Le Château Des Alpilles
At the end of an path lined with 100 year old trees, discover the charm and tranquility of a vast 19th century manor house, finely restored to offer you all the comfort of a home that was once a popular resort for Romantics.

Two truths, one lie:
I used my twin sister's Canadian passport one time to travel to and from Europe when mine had expired.
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.
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.
