Favorite Destination

France. I love every corner of the country and just adore the food, culture, music, natural beauty, language and people.  Most of all, I just love the joie de vivre of the French.

Most Exotic Place Traveled

Everywhere that’s new feels exotic until you get to know it, at which point it feels reassuringly familiar.

Travel Philosophy

Always be thoughtful of your impact on the people, culture and environment at your destination. Come with an open mind and an eagerness to learn.
