California girl, living in Dallas by way of Boston, São Paulo and SLC. I'm always on the search for the most beautiful beaches and the most luxurious hotels. Wish I could take my 70lb dog with me.

My travel style

Many people find travel stressful and I'm certain it's because they're doing it wrong. As long as you are staying in the right hotels, in the right neighborhoods and flying in the front of the plane – travel is a dream whether for business or pleasure. I've spent the past 20 years traveling the world for business and pleasure. I've determined which hotels are the best for work and which are the best for rest and relaxation. On any trip, I try my best to dedicate one day to an off-the-beaten-path to experience local culture. I've learned over time that my taxi drivers usually have the best restaurant recommendations.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Celebrating my parent's 50th anniversary in Yellowstone. 

  • Hiking around Lake Tahoe and the California Redwoods, topped off with a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway. 

  • Eating Mexican food on the beach in Puerto Vallarta. 

  • Playing volleyball on Copacabana Beach.

Dreaming of:

  • Jerusalem.

  • Driving from Barcelona to Monaco and stopping at every French beach town along the way. 

  • Surfing down the sand dunes in Lencois Maranhenses National Park and swimming in its natural pools — can a place this beautiful really exist? 

  • Hopping around the Philippine Islands.

One thing I can't travel without...

My passport and a pair of flip flops.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I was detained by police in Russia.

  2. I was in a mudslide in Costa Rica. 

  3. I got married in a foreign country.
