Hometown: Hinsdale, Illinois.
Occupation: Co-founder of 3 Fl. Oz.
Favorite destinations: South of France, Ireland, Chicago, Maui.
Dying to visit: Russia and South Africa.
Bizarre travel rituals: I don't know if this is bizarre, but I always travel with a robe and slipper socks.
In-flight relaxation regime: I close my eyes. Something about flying knocks me out. I've been known to fall asleep during the assent and wake up during landing.
Always in carry-on: Socks (my feet are always cold), Air Repair Rescue Balm, Herban Essential Eucalyptus wipes, weekly magazines.
Concierge or DIY? Both.
See it all or take it easy? Depends on where I am in the world. My fave vacations are when I can alternate between a relaxing beach/spa day and an explore/adventure day.
Drive or be driven? Drive. I have control issues.
Weirdest thing seen on travels: A guy getting arrested on an overnight train in France for touching women's feet.
Best hotel amenity: A pool and a nice gym.
I dream about my meal at The Celt in Dublin. AMAZING fish and chips!!
Everywhere I go, I check out the supermarkets.
When I arrive in a new place, I learn the lay of the land by walking around.
I always bring home postcards from the places I visited.
I travel for the love of seeing new places, for the adventure, and to experience different cultures.
