My Background

Valerie is an explorer and experiential traveler, having visited 44 countries and 201 cities across 4 continents. Among her amazing adventures around the world are: rafting the Pagsanjan Falls in the Philippines; sailing the Greek Cyclades; exploring the vineyards of South Africa; basking in the romance of Positano and meandering the rice fields and the Valley of the Kings in Bali.

Valerie’s wide-ranging journeys have spanned first class flight cabins and five star hotels to off-the-beaten-path, unscheduled backpacking adventures with unique home-stays that allow her to live locally. She appreciates the value of each experience, for at all levels of simplicity or luxury are the hidden gems of life.
