Adventurer and consultant. Lover of sustainable tourism with an entrepreneurial spirit. I love trekking, coffee and wine, as well as volunteering. I am an investor of dreams!
AUS and SAT, HOU for International. MCI because it's easy to get from east to west. JMK is my next goal!
My travel style
I am a firm believer that we travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us! I love immersing myself into a culture and experiencing life like a local. A little adventure mixed with checking out the local hotspots. I love experiencing the local food – you can learn so much about a culture through the food and the stories around the meals. I like to build my itineraries around unique experiences.
