My travel style
I am an explorer at heart who prefers to take the road less traveled. I seek out destinations that offer a combination of culture, adventure, luxury and natural beauty. I like to be the first person I know to experience a locale. I prefer to take trips to places most people don't travel to, and I try to experience everything those destinations have to offer. I stay at unique hotels, eat at the places the locals recommend, dive deep into the culture of a destination and see first-hand what landmarks and experiences make a place worth visiting.
