My Simple Pleasures: Cooking for friends and family, cozying in with a loved one, a great glass of wine, languidly reading in a café, a long walk with my dog.
Next On The Bucket List: Uruguay, Budapest and Georgia (the country not the state) are at the top of my list. And Tokyo. Which has been on there too long! I’ve long dreamt of wandering its vibrant alleyways and eating my way through the izakayas and soba shops.
Favorite Travel Quote: "A great way to learn about your country is to leave it."
