Travel style

I guess you could say I was born with an inherent curiosity about the world. From a young age, I could be found with my nose in a National Geographic magazine, with bedroom walls plastered in world maps instead of pop stars.

Following a semester abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France (and a bit of an obsession with the late, great Anthony Bourdain), it was official: I had been fully consumed by the travel bug. I was then fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to over 50 countries in my twenties, thanks to my career in aviation.

I tend to adapt my travel style to the destination, resulting in equal parts adventure and relaxation. I am just as likely to be backpacking through ancient ruins in Southeast Asia as I am to be sipping rosé on the Mediterranean. The best itineraries are structured, but allow space for spontaneity. Travel is beautiful in that it creates opportunities to step outside of your comfort zone and try new things, immerse yourself in new cultures and ultimately expand your way of thinking about the world.

Whether adventure or relaxation is your goal, fulfilling my client’s wishes will always be my top priority and I am always willing to think outside of the box to ensure the best possible experience. The most important step is taking the leap and booking the flights … leave the rest to me!
