US or International Travel Advice
I will make recommendations on hotels, restaurants, and attractions in any one of the following areas. I can cater my recommendations to your travel style: luxury, mid-range, or budget; family, couple, or groups; chilling, adventuring, or mixed interests. These are all places that I have visited personally, so my advice is informed by actual experiences rather than just internet research.
U.S. and Canada:
Hawai'i (Big Island, Maui, O'ahu, Kaua'i)
Punta de Mita
Playa del Carmen
Penang Island (Malaysia, not India)
Just let me know who's going, your travel style, what things your hoping to do, as well as any specific questions that you might have!
Training & Qualifications
I am a full time, professional travel writer. I write for a website based out of Seattle, focusing on international, luxury, and family travel. My own personal vacation travel is usually budget style and adventurous. My professional reviews cover hotels, restaurants, tours, attractions, beaches, wineries, nightlife, neighborhoods, and the best times of the year to visit for specific activities. I am a woman who always travels alone, so this gives me a unique perspective.
Availability & Preferences
My hours are flexible. I tend to reply faster when I'm in between major projects. I can reply on the road, too, but if I'm in a different time zone or just wiped out, I might be a little slower getting back to you.
