Minimum booking Budget
I'm as passionate about research & planning as I am about the actual trip - allowing you to be fully present in your experience. Lived and travelled throughout the U.S., Carib, & SE Asia. DFW-based.
I started traveling and living abroad at the age of 10 (as part of a Military family), so my preferences vary, but immersion is always key.
My goal is always to travel like a privileged local - which includes indulging in local food, cooking, wine, art, and live music.
Whether its boutique, luxury resort, or eco - I chose properties based on how well they enable me to get an authentic, yet elevated experience of the destination, and also great value.
