The pursuit of good hiking and delicious cuisine has taken me to many different places in the world. When I plan a vacation, I am always on the look out for accommodation with a unique character, dishes created with fresh, local ingredients and most importantly, a schedule that allows you to appreciate the beauty of a destination.
From planning ryokan to ryokan walking vacations in Japan, to crafting an exclusive family vacation in the African wilderness, I always feel a great sense of achievement when my guests return happily from an epic journey in a remote corner of the planet.
Trying different cuisines, learning about other cultures, and appreciating the many spectacular landscapes across the world have been my long term commitment since I graduated and they keep me on the move from one continent to another.
Aside from my many hobbies, I find time to understand the benefits of sustainable development and learn how to create a better world through tourism.
Favourite places I've been
Always check the sunset and sunrise time before you travel. You may not want to stay indoors when the sky turns into a painting of magical colors.
Try to plan your travels one week before or after the high season, when there are fewer tourists around.
Take a stroll in Harajuku at the weekend and take note of how fashion forward teenagers of Japan are.
Arrive 30 minutes early and get backstage access to the Beijing Opera to see the actors putting on their make up and performing special pre-show rituals before the show.
