Travel for me is like a pulse. It is what keeps me going. I am always curious as to what is around the corner or over the hill. Sharing, designing, and creating experiences for my clients is why I truly enjoy working in the travel industry. The best way to sum up my passion for travel is instead of going to my senior prom in high school, I chose to go to Amsterdam with my sister. I always try to see something new, even if it is around Los Angeles where I currently reside with my family or back home in New York. Visiting museums, exploring different neighborhoods, or enjoying stunning nature keeps me connected.
Before embarking on my travel career, I worked for over ten years in the luxury retail cosmetic industry. It was during this time I honed my eye for the importance of details and understanding this is what truly creates an incredible experience.
Travel is about creating memories and experiences. Travel has a way of making a permanent mark on our minds and souls. It is one aspect of life we recall on to relay a story or note a period of time. It could be a recollection of waking up before sunrise to a meditation along a beautiful beach, a yoga session in a stunning mountain valley, or a spa treatment at the end of the day in a little inn surrounded by natural springs. It can also be a gastronomical experience since each location has its own gastronomic specialty.
The senses of taste and smell forever identifies a place. It, furthermore, gives you great insight to the people who reside in the destination. The customs and roots of the location. Whether it is an everything bagel with plain cream cheese and Gaspe lox from an appetizing deli in New York on a Sunday morning or an incredible Sunday roast with the most outrageous Eton mess for dessert at a local pub in a tiny village in Nottinghamshire, England.
When traveling, it is always a good idea to take part on an escorted tour with someone who is familiar with a destination. It gives you a deeper insight and appreciation whether it is the landscape, architecture, or cultural sites.
