About

Hi, I’m Leslie, a passionate traveler with a deep love for exploring diverse cultures and landscapes. From the vibrant streets of Spain, to the enchanting beauty of Southeast Asia and the rich tapestry of destinations in Africa, I find joy in immersing myself in unique experiences. My travel style seamlessly blends cultural discovery, thrilling adventures, and moments of leisure, creating the perfect trifecta for an unforgettable journey. Food is always a pivotal element in my travel planning. Let me curate a memorable trip for you that will be tailor-made to your interests, preferences, and budget.

Travel style

My ideal travel itinerary includes a combination of cities, mountains, and beaches. Tours are great for learning about history and customs, but what I find most meaningful are the moments I take to chat with locals, taste the native food, immerse myself in the culture, and appreciate the beauty in my surroundings. I prefer luxury travel, but I utilize a savvy approach in my planning, knowing when to indulge and when to save.

Leslie 's reviews

Leslie is amazing. She found the perfect place for us to stay. I had originally considered a different one in another location on the island, but am so happy that she advised me on this hotel. It really is the best option on the island and ideal for anything you want to see while there.
