I love to eat and I love to travel. 

I wasn’t always so good at the second one though. 10 countries later and after being phone-less, stressed out, and alone, I got a lil better. 

Who would’ve guessed that losing my phone in a foreign country while traveling solo would’ve been the best thing that ever happened to me?

From learning true patience to making conversation with strangers (trust me, you get lonely), I’ve learned lessons that I use daily at my desk job in Silicon Valley.

You learn a lot about yourself when the only person you have to blame for anything – is you. 

From learning how to find international flights for half the price to know what to research before a trip – my travel style is about spending less, seeing more and eating better. 

I’ve made expensive mistakes – like booking a train for the wrong time because I failed to read international time, but guess what? I’ll never make that mistake again. 

However these countless mistakes have led to the memories I’ll remember the rest of my life – running with bulls, sleeping on beautiful Italian beaches, and chance encounters with people who ultimately changed my world view for the better.

In my opinion, travel is the only thing you spend on, that actually makes you richer. 

Living in the Bay Area, with busy jobs and expensive rent, it’s not easy to take days off. That’s why when you finally get a couple days to travel – I want you to maximize every minute from seeing as much as you can, to every meal being amazing. 

I’ll be sharing my best tips on spending less on things that don’t matter, so you can splurge on the things that do – like food. 😉
