Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures

Lewis Carroll

Travel things that I am a fan of:

  • DIY itineraries
  • Luxury on a budget
  • Bucket list excursions
  • Local cuisine
  • Maintaining a diet/exercise regimen while traveling
  • Adapting health and wellness practices from around the world

If I had time for a part-time job, I’d become a travel photographer. Meanwhile, medicine keeps me so busy that I could never travel full time. But even if, I’m not sure if my type-A personality is conducive to being on the road for too long. After two weeks, I’m ready to return to reality–i.e. a strict diet, bedtime, and workout routine. It comes with being a doctor, right?!

Luckily, wellness travel is one of the fastest growing markets in tourism. Hotels are now placing more of an emphasis on their fitness and lifestyle amenities. In other words, the travel industry is finally finding a way to let me have my cake and eat it too.
