My travel style
Attentive planner who squares big details in advance, so that I can relax and go-with-the-flow when I arrive. Intrinsically curious about the world, I have an insatiable appetite for thoughtful travel, beautiful hotels, local wine and moments when my kids are at peace by the ocean. I relish any travel that is a break from routine, creates memories and opens eyes (big and small) to new possibilities.
