A nomad at heart, I’ve lived in Argentina, the Czech Republic and a smattering of states across America. I started my travel career in South America, where I made regular stops at some of my all-time favourite properties, including Awasi Atacama, Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa and Galapagos Safari Camp. I’m now Los Angeles-based and taking advantage of visiting the local Mr & Mrs Smith properties as a way to get to know the city. In town for a whirlwind visit? I recommend a stay at the Palihouse Santa Monica, a glamorous lunch at Sunset Tower Hotel and evening drinks at NoMad Los Angeles.

Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa
The view from Tierra’s Patagonia’s pool is not to be missed – though I can say the same about its sister property Tierra Atacama. Both hotels are bases for endless adventures, facilitated by friendly staff members and expert guides.View Hotel
I always have my favourite SPF-loaded winter-mint lip balm with me – nothing ruins an adventure-packed holiday (and the related selfies) quite like lips chapped from too much sun and wind.
I wish I was...
Snorkelling with the friendly sea lions – they are incredibly inquisitive and playful and love blowing bubbles in your face – in the Galapagos.
