was born out of a lifelong passion for tropical beaches, off-the-beaten-path islands, boutique resorts, and a desire to connect with self and nature through my travel experiences. As a former flight attendant and current travel blogger, I have had the opportunity to plan distinctive trips for myself and friends as well as share experiences and tips through my writing and photos. It seemed only natural to expand this passion into planning travel for others...so here we are!

Balinese massages, 24-hour butler service, and private dinners in the resorts' wine cellar are just a sprinkling of the amenities offered at this Indian ocean paradise.
