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 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.
