Experiences, not things, are my secret to a life well-lived. Former corporate executive, wife and mother, aspiring cookbook chef and globetrotter (40 countries and counting).
DFW for most travel, occasionally DAL.
My travel style
I'm a learner, which means I'm always seeking new experiences, reaching out to learn about others, as well as exploring new and adventurous pursuits. I'm passionate about helping others to expand their horizons and to seek stories to tell, not stuff to show. Having lived in four countries on multiple continents, I love the opportunity to help others experience the wonders that are new cultures while escaping from the stress of daily life.
