My travel style

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.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Exploring stunning coastal beaches and dancing the night way in Ibiza.

  • Eating all the tarts and riding in Tuk Tuks in Lisbon.

  • Enjoying all the unique neighborhoods of Toronto.

  • Chasing my boys down the mountain in Vail.

Dreaming of:

  • Tel Aviv, the Mediterranean metropolis.

  • Costa Rica for a family adventure holiday.

  • Cartagena for a girls trip. 

  • Luxe African Safari.

One thing I can't travel without...

Travel iron.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I lost my passport in a Paris nightclub and had it returned to me the next day. 

  2. I was rescued while on a paddleboard off the coast of Portugal. 

  3. I sang karaoke in a Seoul pub at 2am.
