I spent my youth looking up to my older cousin who lived, studied, and worked abroad. As a young adult, I watched Anthony Bourdain, Andrew Zimmern, and Rick Steves as they ate their way through countries and experienced the people and cultures. I've made travel a priority for my family and myself, and I'm so excited to be able to bring that passion into my business. Travel is about more than just visiting pretty places. It's about connecting to the local people and culture in different ways, and if you do it right, it will leave a mark on your soul.
