Former expat back home in Chicago. Bad case of wanderlust. Wrangler of three boys. Happiest in a Spanish airport with a cafe con leche and a bocadillo. Lover of beautiful details in travel and life.
I believe travel is an experience for all your senses, from design-forward hotels, quaint artisan shops and eye-opening local dishes. You can find me wandering around exploring, seeking beauty in the sights, sounds and smells of any new destination – and then you will find me headed straight to the best rooftop for sunset cocktails. But you can also find me cliff jumping into the Mediterranean, or riding a tuk tuk around town. And when I am back home I am already thinking about the next adventure.
