Home airports

ATL is more than just an airport code, it's my gateway to adventure and exploration!

My travel style

Adventure is my middle name! I love luxury camping and hiking, but also enjoy cooking classes, wine tastings and museum visits. Whether I'm walking through a bustling market or relaxing on a turquoise beach, I always make time to meet locals and try their cuisine. While I have a soft spot for boutique hotels, I'm equally happy in a quaint farmhouse or other unique accommodations that offer a glimpse into a destination's culture.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Exploring Mexico City’s endless culinary and cultural offerings. 

  • Obsessing over the white sand beaches, local cuisine and rich culture of St. Martin/Sint Maarten. 

  • Enjoying Hilton Head Island, a low-country paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.

  •  Surfing, hiking and soaking up the bohemian vibes of Sayulita.

Dreaming of:

  • The sun-drenched hills of Italy are calling me. 

  • Todos Santos and Oaxaca, Mexico. 

  • Who can resist Mallorca? 

  • Obsessed with Mykonos and all of Greece, really.

One thing I can't travel without...

iPhone and headphones.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I have slept on the iconic Mayan Ruins of Tikal. 

  2. I have slept on a hammock on the beach in Tulum. 

  3. My daughter lives in South Africa.
