LUXURY TRAVEL CURATOR, TRAVEL AGENT & BLOGGER
Celebrating the Art of Slow Travel, back in time. A redolent take on Luxury Trains travel worldwide. And of course the not so slow, aboard High-Speed Trains from China to Japan, Russia and Europe.
For the last 30 years, I have traveled the world exploring, scouting and experiencing the best of the world of Travel. These are my some of my favorite experiences and tours, as I travel, curating the world of luxury travel, one destination at the time.
Luxury, has so many interpretations. I believe, it is most authentic, when understood beyond the obvious. It all comes down to one individual’s expectations and needs. My luxury, is measured by rarity and sophistication, access to destinations, services, individuals and experiences, which go beyond the mere concept of self-indulgence.
