- Boutique Hotels,
- Cultural Immersion,
- Budget Luxury
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.
Between Newark and Lisbon.
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.
Quinta de São Bernardo
A refined escape in the heart of the Douro Valley, with just seven rooms and a riverside infinity pool.
The Ivens, Lisbon, Autograph Collection
Elegant oasis located in a 19th-century Portuguese building with three well-appointed Italian restaurants.
Hotel La Semilla
Exclusive and intimate escape onto the paradisical coast of the Mexican Caribbean within the privacy of an elegant villa.
Complimentary bottle of wine.

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