My travel style

I’m all about off-the-beaten-path and far-flung, awe-inspiring destinations. Remote luxury is my thing. I love Awasi Patagonia, Three Camel Lodge in the Gobi Desert and the Great Plains Conservation camps in Botswana. I am fascinated by luxury hotels that blend into a desolate landscape, the perfect balance of modern design and environmental stewardship.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Scouting Morocco. 

  • Hanging out in London.

  • Slug-on-the-beach in the D.R.

Dreaming of:

  • Namibia. 

  • Galapagos. 

  • Raja Ampat. 

  • Mozambique.

One thing I can't travel without...

My giant leather "bucket" bag. I throw everything in there – when in doubt, f**k it, just chuck it in the bucket.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. One time, I chartered a plane last-minute in Ethiopia.

  2. I used to have a pet turkey.

  3. I’ve met the Pope.
