E3 Experiences represents the gateway to discovering a fresh travel perspective. We go beyond the common tourist destinations and take you off the beaten path. To the beloved local spots that most tourists never get to see. When you go with E3 we take your travel experience from ordinary to extraordinary.

You know the phrase ‘go with the flow’? Well at E3 that’s what we embody. There’s nothing strict or stressful about these experiences. It’s all about having your eyes opened to the extraordinary that is always around us. Endless opportunities to simply follow your bliss and the chance to embrace spontaneity and adventure.

We’ll explore culture, meet locals, learn language and dig deeper into the who, what and how that makes each area distinctive. Join me on adventures that allow the synchronicities to expand as we learn about ourselves and the world around us.

Each experience is unique and may include:

  • Cooking classes
  • Outings to local markets and/or festivals
  • Wine (and perhaps olive oil, champagne, limoncello and more) tastingswinetasting
  • Shopping (pottery, antiques, local treasures and more)
  • Yoga
  • Hiking
  • Informal coaching (and opportunities to book some private time with me too)

You’ll leave each experience having learned new skills (perhaps a few words in a new language or how to hand make pasta or authentic chocolate mousse), new friends, and brimming with a profound appreciation of the intricate nature of world culture and humanity.

E3 is an expression of my deep love for sharing genuine travel experiences with others. Come join the adventure!
