Travel Plans
Buenos Aires, Argentina
dream destination
Never been to South America, but I love steak, drinking, shopping and dancing, so I suspect I'll like it there!
dream destination
I have to go a safari by the time I'm 40!
Vienna, Austria
dream destination
When the exchange rate drops, I want to head back to Europe again - one of my first stops will be to Vienna to see the Klimt paintings firsthand!
Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
English, mandarin (a little). I also speak like 5 words of french, japanese and taiwanese.
Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Gosh - there have been so many...
(i) roaming the streets of Paris during the annual sales and strolling along the Seine,
(ii) enjoying the best meal of my life at Zuberoa in San Sebastian,
(iii) seeing firsthand the beautiful Pre-Raphaelite paintings at Tate Britain,
(iv) floating flower markets in Bangkok,
(v) eating the most delicious breakfast buffet at Peninsula hotel in Bangkok,
(vi) snorkeling in Turks & Caicos - the warmest, clearest, bluest waters,
(vii) buying the most beautiful post cards in Kyoto and meeting the actual artist, who was super sweet and only spoke about 5 words of english, but was incredibly delightful,
(vii) spending about 10 days in Japan with my mom during a special mother/daughter trip,
(viii) experiencing the beauty and charm of Florence with my best friend; and
(ix) having an awesome adventure in Southeast Asia (love love love Bali)!
I'm a happy, sometimes silly, person who loves spending time with family and friends. I have many eclectic interests - but my passions are food, cooking, traveling and just having a good time!
