My travel style

Living in a small town in Portugal for six years, I became immersed in their culture, first out of necessity, then out of curiosity. Soon enough, I realized that approaching family travel with each member's interest opens paths even in the most remote places. I love a culinary experience that leads to meeting people and knowing their stories. Driven by my taste buds, you'll find me finding what to do around good places to eat and finding activities to share authentic experiences with my family.

One thing I can't travel without...

Wet wipes.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I saw Oscar Wilde's ghost after kissing the Blarney Stone. 

  2. I was trapped in a store and was not allowed to leave until I bought salt and pepper shakers in Jamaica. 

  3. I left my wallet at a New York City public bus and found it.
