Austin-based travel writer Becca Hensley is a globetrotting bon vivant with expertise in food, wine, romance, art-oriented trips, and fitness forays. Her work has appeared in major magazines and newspapers including National Geographic Traveler, Houston Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, and the New York Post. The published poet and wellness expert is driven by her penchant for fine hotels and the gifts gleaned from transformational travel. A luxury aficionado, Becca has dined in nearly a hundred Michelin-starred restaurants, slept in the world’s top hotels, and traveled to more than 120 countries — many of them more than once. In Paris alone, she’s enjoyed 50 distinct hotels. She’ll tell you about her treks with Micato Safaris in India, her rambles through Africa (including trekking with the elusive silverback gorillas in Rwanda), and her lazy days on Fijian private island resorts. A train traveler, golfer, yogi, biker, art buff, wine aficionado, shopping, and fashion expert, and mother who has traveled with her children in tow, she knows how to navigate the world in style.
