About Us


Nancy Kylis, a native of Maryland and a graduate of the University of Maryland's School of Fine Arts, is an avid gourmet. She has spent the past 30 years in various capacities within the hospitality industry.  She definitely knows her way around a kitchen and she will ensure that the culinary side of any SlowGlobe trip receives 5 stars.


Jim Kylis is a native of Washington DC, but he has lived in Italy and traveled extensively throughout Europe.  An amateur mountain bike racer, triathlete, snowboarder and adventure-sport enthusiast, Jim leads many of SlowGlobe's more "active" excursions.  He spent several years as a tennis instructor and is still pretty handy with a racquet.  He tempers the workouts by reminding everyone to keep something in reserve for the evening’s entertainment!
