A side hustler with an affinity for dogs, writing, flying comfortably and hotel life. I adore Asian food, kindness, practicality, languages and KitKats.
OAK-kie that leaves her heart in SFO.
My travel style
Long-term travel with companions. As a solo-traveler, I stay more in hostels. I have a great appreciation for shared experiences and modern conveniences – which I love hotels for – and living like a local in Airbnbs or VRBOs. City girl that tries to stay away from the sun and mosquitoes, yet the beautiful, moderate weather pulls her right back in. Admittedly not the planner, but I am the enabler.
A handsome new addition in the high-rise The National building, with 219 rooms and suites and a full-service spa.
A standout stay in lower Manhattan, with a jaw-dropping Art Deco lobby, Tom Colicchio restaurant and a speakeasy-style bar.

Two truths, one lie:

Thailand and Canada are two countries I haven't been detained by customs in.
I swapped a friend with my business class seat for her economy seat.
