Hi, I’m Sara!

We can probably be friends if You…

Appreciate a lovely bubble bath after a long flight. You might even shower in the airport lounges during long layovers to recharge and be ready to hit the ground running upon arrival to your final destination.

Monitor multiple websites for the best deals but have trouble making a decision on where to go when the deal pops up. Do you go where you’ve already been and love or do you go somewhere new? Choices can be so hard!

Enjoy learning history, culture, and traditions when you travel while also trying to speak a little (or a lot!) of the local language.

Believe that thoughtful itineraries with all the important details is traveling smartly… even though everyone has a smart phone.

What’s in my Suitcase

Life + Style

I consider my style to be elegant and timeless. I aim to buy things that will stay in my closet for years because of the quality and the style. Princess Catherine is my style icon. I keep my accessories to a minimum; I’ve been carrying the same handbags for at least 10 years. I prefer dresses to pants. After 2 hip surgeries, comfortable and stylish shoes are a necessity. I love a great cape or a fantastic blazer that can carry me from fall to winter to spring. I’ll never say no to an excuse to dress up. And, I’m probably not going to pack carry-on only.

Thoughtful Travel Planning

Itinerary Ideas

I don’t believe in day trips. You need at least a night in a place to really appreciate its essence. A walking tour is the best way to get acclimated to a new place and find out what locals believe is important. What’s grown together, goes together. (In other words, I love trying to pair local food and wine when traveling.)
