  • Favorite destinations
    This question gets tougher every single year. Norway and Croatia are new discoveries. London feels like home. France and Italy still have my heart though.
  • Destination wishlist
    How much time do you have?
  • Best travel tip
    Take gobs of cash.
  • Favorite hotel
    Shangri-La in Bangkok. Anantara Chiang Mai. Albergo Lenno on Lake Como, La Minerva on Capri. Residence Alcione in Positano isn't bad either. :)
  • Favorite restaurant
    Based on memories, or on the food? Memories: il Barchetta in Bellagio and Le Petit Pontoise in Paris. Food - anywhere I can get foie gras and vin doux.
  • Never travels without
    Spontaneity and a sense of adventure.
  • All-time best travel moment
    Too many too count. Top five in no order: 1. Taking my Mom ballooning in Tuscany - she is very afraid of heights but had a blast. Proud of her! 2. Hiking with Dad in the Swiss Alps, barely four months after his hip surgery. 3. Loy Krathong in Chiang Mai. I released a krathong as well as a lantern, said my wishes, let go of my fears, and now I wait. :) 4. A good gallop along the Pacific Ocean in Peru. 5. Tour de France vantage points with Mom.
  • Interests and hobbies
    Traveling, photography, reading, flying, hiking, biking.
