" I was born a wanderer and I decided very early that travel will be not just a dream but my life plan. For me happiness is not a destination but the journey itself, so the best thing in life other than planning a new trip, is to make it happen for the guests. I love history, art, food and wine, trekking, photography, reading, street art, but more than anything to create new memories."
