My work allows me the opportunity to travel the world to review hotels, resorts, restaurants, museums, and other one-of-a-kind experiences, even some of the hottest and hard to get into events!

Check out my photo album and allow your mind to escape as we travel the world to experience good food, great people, lots of fun, and perhaps even a bit of serenity.
My hope is that I inspire you enough to go ahead and cross that next destination off your bucket list. And don’t forget to tell them that Lisa from Houston Style sent you!
