Travel philosophy: I love getting lost in an entirely new culture where most people are speaking a different language, and every day is a new opportunity to learn about the people, history and local hot spots. I also believe that a hotel with great customer service and excellent dining options make the trip.
My ideal vacation: My ideal vacation is exploring any European town like walking along the cobblestone streets of Saint-Paul de Vence on a warm July day picking up local art and food, followed by a fresh Mediterranean dinner in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.
Best travel tip: Do a little background research on restaurants before your trip. Sometimes even the best hotels can send you to the popular tourist places, but checking out Galavante’s recommendations or asking a local can give you a more satisfying and authentic culinary experience.
