My travel style

I understand different types of tours and will recommend what fits the kind of holiday the traveler is looking for. For instance, for sightseeing and adventure packed itineraries, I recommend staying in a decent three-to-four-star property, as travelers are mostly outdoor exploring and hardly spend time in the hotels to appreciate the amenities – hence huge savings. Location is also key as most of these kinds of hotels are conveniently situated near public transportation or are accessible to most tour pickups. For more relaxing vacations and honeymoons, I recommend luxe five-star properties as travelers will likely spend 80-90% of their time in the hotel. Hence, they will have time to enjoy the property amenities like recreational facilities, spa, explore different restaurants or just chillin’ and sippin’ sundowner cocktails on the beach!

One thing I can't travel without...

My famous yellow Tusker T-shirt – Guinness World Records here we come for the t-shirt captured with most wonders of the world and iconic attractions.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I have been questioned for hours in about 20 of the 27 countries I have traveled to so far.

  2. I stayed in a fine four star hotel in the middle of Times Square NY for US$49 a night.

  3. I met someone and fell in love with them on a four hour journey flight.
