One of my favorite ways to tour a new city is by delving into the art scene. For some cities, that might mean paying a visit (or two) to a famous museum while other destinations might take me to the street to view innovative graffiti and politically-driven murals. Fashion is also an art, as is music and I enjoy learning about these aspects just as much as I do traditional artwork. Here are ten cit[...]
 
 
Italy is almost synonymous with food and that's especially true in the Emilia-Romagna region. During the course of the week, I had the chance to get crafty and I enjoyed every minute of it. Below are five of my favorite interactive experiences that I recommend for any bohemian traveler heading to Northern Italy. In a perfect world, I'd suggest spending three days in Bologna and then spending the r[...]
 
 
As great as the weather is in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’ve been missing the street art that I got so used to seeing near my apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn. With that in mind, I headed to the trendy Mission District for a stroll through the mural-packed Clarion Alley, located between Valencia and Mission Streets.The Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP) reminds me a little of the Bushwick[...]

Hannah reached out to me on social media and I'm so glad that she did. Hannah works with a variety of mediums and her work is as bohemian as they come. See below for a full interview below.

July started off with an unexpected trip to Lisbon. My husband had been invited to speak at The Lisbon Challenge and I was fortunate enough to tag along for the weekend. Technically, I had been to Portugal before but it was very short lived. I spent a memorable day in Faro during my semester studying abroad. It was meant as a pitstop on my way to see a friend who was living in Sevilla, Spain. Well[...]
 
 
In April I moved to Brooklyn and it didn't take me long to discover just how alive the street art scene is here. My new neighborhood is Bushwick, which seems to be the main hub for graffiti artists. A few weeks ago I wrote about how I discovered the existence of the Bushwick Collective and shared a few images.I first stumbled upon this outdoor gallery while on my way to drop off my first month[...]
 
 
It's not everyday that you get to chat with your favorite fiction writer but that's exactly what happened when I decided to reach out to Alexandra Potter on Twitter a few weeks ago. I was in the middle of reading one of her books, You're The One That I Don't Want, and was in near hysterics at a particular moment in the story. I decided to tweet how much I was enjoying the book and a few minutes la[...]
 
 
I only spent two days in Zagreb but luckily I managed to see an absurd amount of innovative street art before leaving. Our group was a bit unlucky with weather during our time in Zagreb but when the sun did shine, it was simply glorious. On my last night in town and during the last remaining hour of sunlight, I wandered toward the train tracks to spot graffiti.There is a long public wall along[...]
 
 
Before connecting the dots that I'd be visiting Indianapolis during the Indy 500 weekend, my main reason for heading the midwestern city was to check out their new Cultural Trail. I've always thought of Indy as more of a sports destination than anything else so when I learned about this urban bike and pedestrian connecting five of their downtown districts, I was eager to experience this for myself[...]
 
 
This is a guest post by Aline Mayard of YallaBye.eu.Beirut was such a beautiful, cosmopolitan, and vibrant city in the 50’s and 60’s that it was known as the Paris of the Middle East.
