A collection of my favorite places, books, and more.
Mountains. Lakes. Rivers. Fields. Sunshine. Snow. The Bernese Oberland is a paradise for adventure travelers.
Home of simple, tasteful food, pretty countryside walks, and charming, cobbled towns. Italy charms me.
Favorite towns: Cinque Terre, Tavernelle, & Assisi.
Underneath the pretty architecture, crispy waffles, and quiet canals lies a vibrant art scene brimming with talent.
Favorite towns: Ghent & Brugge.
Rich and lush and full of wildlife, southern Africa gets under your skin like no other place on earth.
Favorite spots: Okavongo Delta & Victoria Falls.
