Some of my favorite travel experiences

I’ve had the incredible opportunity to spend a good bit of time in Iceland and fell completely in love with it. I lived in Morocco for three years and it’s in my soul now. I’ve been in food, beverage and travel for almost twenty years and have practiced yoga for that long as well. Why am I telling you all this? Because based on this experience and expertise, I’m sharing vacation ideas that truly speak to me, and I hope to you too. But if you don’t feel a connection to any of the offerings you see here, simply press the bespoke button and we will make it happen!  

Imagine a hunt for the beautiful Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, comfortably travelling in a Super Jeep. The road leads to one of Iceland’s most renowned seafood restaurants for an unforgettable lobster feast dinner.

Let’s begin…

Wander through mounds of fresh, locally sourced produce, while learning about the culture of Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. Glistening seafood and spiced meats will pile high on outdoor terraces, glasses will overflow with craft beers and your soul will recalibrate as you bask in the afternoon rays of the Mediterranean sun.
