About

I am living in Portugal and often travel back to the US to see family. One of my favorite things to do in a new area is to go to local markets and grocery stores.

My travel style

My travel style has evolved over the years. I appreciate staying in one place for a few days at a time to immerse myself in the culture and really enjoy my time there. I love to end my trips with luxury and relaxation. The saying “I need a vacation from my vacation” is not part of my ethos. As for planning trips for others, I love knowing that I’ve put together the perfect trip for my client.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Exploring the coast of Portugal.

  • Enjoying sunsets and apéritifs on the Amalfi coast.

  • Eating all the lobster rolls in Cape Cod.

  • Sitting in the clouds in Madeira.

Dreaming of:

  • Shopping for ceramics and spices at bazaars in Morocco.

  • Hiking and seeing wildlife in Patagonia.

  • Renting a van and driving around New Zealand.

  • Finding the perfect beach in French Polynesia.

One thing I can't travel without...

Noise-canceling headphones.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I studied wine making in Croatian.

  2. I traveled around southeast Asia on a Vespa.

  3. I claimed my passport was lost while it was in my backpack.
