I discovered my wanderlust early on following my artist father across America from gallery to gallery, and it grew as I did. Having since gone on to travel some 40 countries across the world and live in Asia for half a decade, these days I’m thrilled to be sharing my love of travel with our guests!
I’ve spent much of my adult life traveling: living and working across Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Wanderlust runs deep in my blood. But of the many places my journeys have taken me, perhaps none has held as deep an appeal for me as Asia. From summering in the shadow of Mt. Fuji to watching the sun rise across Angkor Wat, from the crystalline waters of Koh Samui to the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, lazy Laotian rivers to gleaming Hong Kong skyscrapers, and bathing baby elephants to bubbling bowls of pho, the region has served as a literal endless wellspring of amazing experiences.
Favourite places I've been
When in Bangkok, be sure to catch Chatuchak – the city’s biggest and busiest market at its colorful, chaotic peak on weekends! Home to over 15,000 stalls, you can literally find any and everything at this highlight!
Find the very best of Chiang Mai’s night markets tucked between the Ping River and the eastern edge of the old city moat – and don’t be afraid to haggle!
Notice all the red teeth in Bhutan? That’s from the local habit of chewing Betel Nut, which is actually the dried fruit of the Areca Palm. A mild stimulant, it is widely loved amongst Bhutanese, in spite of dubious health effects.
Think you like spicy? Be careful asking for “Thai spicy” in the southern Thai islands – even Thais from other parts of the country find the local spiciness here to be overwhelming.
