Profile details


Arts, culture and adventure are in my DNA, so when I travel, I like spending more time than the average tourist would in a new place. I don't go with a schedule or a checklist. Instead I like to wander and let the day unfold. One is far more likely to appreciate a destination – its unique pace, food, people, culture and quirks – when you're not racing from one “must-see” thing to another, don’t you think?

Travel style

I enjoy smaller, boutique hotels, always within walking distance of the sites I plan to visit. Wandering around a city and discovering new and unexpected things is how I spend most of my time, followed up by good meals and good wine. Throw in a street market or art show and it's a great trip!
