  • 5 Women Who Inspire Wanderlust

    Earlier this month I attended the first ever Women's Travel Fest hosted by the lovely Kelly Lewis of Go! Girl Guides. Kelly and I met about two years ago while traveling through Israel and having kept in touch since, it hardly surprised me that she managed to pull something of this great magnitude o[...]
  • Self-Reflection in the Argentina Countryside

    Over the holidays I did something that I haven't done in two years...I took a holiday. Well, sort of a holiday and I'll explain. My husband is originally from Argentina and hadn't been home in a few years so naturally, we decided to swap a few weeks in cold New York for sunny, 90 degree weather in A[...]
  • Guide to Nashville's Creative Art Hubs

    As I mentioned in my other Nashville post, many of the cool neighborhoods are not within walking distance of downtown so I definitely recommend renting a car or at splurging on a taxi to visit at least one of these areas while in town. Exploring Nashville's innovative art hubs was a major highlight [...]
  • 5 London Neighborhoods for the Avant-Garde Traveler

    I've written about London neighborhoods before and that's because there are so many fabulous ones to explore. During my semester abroad, I spent any free moment I had simply wandering around London. Similar to New York, I found that each area had its own distinct personality and that's not the case [...]
  • Neighborhood Guide to Kyoto

    I found Kyoto very manageable, especially compared to a larger city like Tokyo. I spent three days exploring the different neighborhoods, sampling local food and people-watching whenever my legs needed a break.

5 London Neighborhoods for the Avant-Garde Traveler

I've written about London neighborhoods before and that's because there are so many fabulous ones to explore. During my semester abroad, I spent any free moment I had simply wandering around London. Similar to New York, I found that each area had its own distinct personality and that's not the case in every city.

Neighborhood Guide to Kyoto

I found Kyoto very manageable, especially compared to a larger city like Tokyo. I spent three days exploring the different neighborhoods, sampling local food and people-watching whenever my legs needed a break. Kyoto has a good number of neighborhoods and just like other cities like New York and London, each feels different and appeals to a different crowd. I didn't get to visit all of them, but h[...]

Fashion Guide to NoLIta

I had so much fun writing my hipster guide to the Lower East Side that I decide to make it a series. There are so many amazingly fascinating neighborhoods in New York and each deserves a little praise once in awhile. Today's guide is all about NoLIta, or North of Little Italy to be exact. This is arguably my favorite area of Manhattan, although it's really a toss up between here and the LES. I gue[...]

Talk about coming full circle!In case you are plann[...]
