Whether it’s an illness or a genetic trait, wanderlust is something that defines me. I have been living out of a backpack for five years. During this amazing adventure, I have visited 41 countries, learned speak new languages, and build up an extensive network of Travel designers, Concierges & Local Guides. I do believe that travel is for everyone, a little different idea from one person to another but with one initial goal in mind - to experience new things.
