Travel style

I love a mix of everything to really experience a destination – although who can say no to a unique luxury hotel? My ideal adventure has a mix of luxury and boutique, nature and city, and remote and well-established. I get the feel for a culture through food, whether that be food tours, cooking classes, gourmet restaurants, market visits or street food. Once I fall in love with the idea of a country, I can't stop obsessing until I visit it! I always research my destinations (and yours) extensively to make sure I'm not missing out on anything unique.

Nadia's reviews

Working with Nadia is always amazing. She provides helpful insight and helps make your dream trip a reality. I loved that she suggested Miraval for me and can’t wait to go on future suggestions of hers.

Nadia helped make this vacation a vacation! I am a planner and like to make sure that all of my ducks are in row and our days are filled, but also relaxing. Nadia gave us several options and helped narrow down what would be best for our family. Her experience helps me feel relaxed; I trust that if she recommends it, or has done it before, it will be a good experience for us. There is no way that I will plan another vacation without her! Thank you, Nadia!
