My 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.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Exploring Tanzania and Kenya’s safaris, beaches, and giraffes. 

  • Trying every cuisine possible in Dubai.

  • Visiting the Taj Mahal and going on a street food tour in India.

  • Hanging out at a ball pit bar, going to afternoon tea and participating in a Harry Potter cocktail class in London.

Dreaming of:

  • Kachi Lodge in the Bolivian Salt Flats.

  • Seeing wild elephants in Thailand.

  • Seeing the Northern Lights in the Swedish Lapland.

  • Hanging out with penguins and seeing glaciers in Antarctica.

One thing I can't travel without...

A travel-sized white noise machine.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I tore my meniscus in France.

  2. I once got caught in a freak wave in Fiji.

  3. I've been kicked out of a onsen in Japan.
