Hi, I'm Autumn, and I'm a travel addict of my own design...
No, I didn't give up a high-paying job in corporate finance to pursue my dream of traveling the world. I don't live out of a suitcase, party all night in Phuket, or have the first idea how to find a hostel for bohemian hipsters.
Oh, and if you ever see a picture of me in a bikini, you'll know this website has been hacked ;).
The truth is, my life isn't all that glamorous! I'm a Texas girl through and through who caught the travel bug as a toddler dancing on the shores of the South Padre coast. Since then, my travels have taken me to some pretty fabulous places, served up some heavenly meals, & introduced me to a world far beyond what my little mind could have imagined.
I'm crazy about exploring this world, eating its food, drinking its wine, and absorbing its culture. I've learned how to travel the way I like to live--in comfort and with class. The opportunity to travel well is a beautiful gift from above--one I'm keen to share with everyone I meet.
Jetlag Please is my journal. In it, I share my obsessions as well as my expertise and experiences as both a traveler and a travel designer for some of the best people I know. I hope you'll come along with me as I hunt for truffles, pop corks, & sniff out the stinkiest of cheeses. This is a beautiful world, and I prefer to explore it with all five senses (plus a much-needed sense of humor).
On My Mind...
I. Am. Obsessed. With. France. France is home to some of my favorite things: delicious, classic cuisine, spectacular wine, fabulous shopping, quaint architecture, & breathtaking scenery. There's literally nothing you can't see or do there!
Ciao, bella! Is there any place on earth more romantic, charming, or downright special that Italy? (The answer here is no, no, there isn't.)
Of all the places to get some #jetlagplease, Europe is my favorite. If you've never been, it can be pretty overwhelming. Take advantage of my expert advice here and you'll Euro like a PRO on your next trip!
Forgive me for ranting, but travel should be made for you--not the other way around. I built my business on the principle that customized travel = more fun and better memories. If you need advice on personalizing your trip, you've come to the right place.
Welcome, Foodies! You are among friends here. I love sharing my favorite dining tips, restaurant advice, & even recipes from my culinary adventures. If you are a food tour fanatic like I am, you'll love these articles.
Wine geeks, brew hounds, & mixologists unite! It's always happy hour at Jetlag Please...seriously...I'm drinking a martini as I type this.
