It's been nearly two months since my whirlwind trip to Colombia and my mind is still reeling. So much creativity; so much color. If you didn't get a chance to check out my Boho Fashion Guide to Medellín from last week, I highly recommend giving it a glance. There are so many talented local designers that are shaping the city into a fashion capital and the same can be said about the local artists t[...]
 
 
WOW! Where do I even get started on this piece? In short, I was blown away by Medellín's fashion scene and hopefully, you will be too after reading this glamour guide.During my stay at the ultra cool and eco-luxe Charlee Hotel, we trotted around town with one of Colombia's top fashion influencers, Laura of Fashion Lessons. Since the Charlee is an upscale, boutique design hotel located in the h[...]
 
 
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been borderline obsessed with marine mammals but I certainly wasn’t unique in that sense; many children dream of becoming marine biologists when they grow up. In fact, for a good decade, I wanted nothing more than to work as a marine mammal trainer at SeaWorld. Oh, how times have changed! While my stance on animal captivity has taken a 360-degree turn, my love for ocea[...]
 
 
Ever since learning about Crystal River early last year, it's been on the top of my travel list. While my main focus for coming to Citrus County was to interact with manatees in a safe and natural environment (more on that next week), that ended up being only one facet of my trip.Plantation on Crystal River proved the perfect home away from home. It has all the conveniences I've grown accustom[...]
 
 
Making the move to the west coast meant many things: warmer year-round weather, more expensive rent and, of course, easy access to Napa Valley and Sonoma County. When I lived in New York I really didn't take advantage of nearby day trips and I didn't want the same thing to be true of San Francisco. In the last year, I've made it to Napa three times and while I'm certainly no expert, I've rounded u[...]
 
 
*This is a guest post by Rohit Agarwal of Transindiatravels. Being the 7th largest country in the World, India strikes the right chord as a tourist destination. It is located at the peninsular region of Asia amidst 3 different oceanic bodies. Home to the Indus valley Civilization and a region of historic trade routes and vast empire, its tourism depicts ancient, medieval and early modern times[...]
 
 
It's not everyday that you get to jet-set to the Caribbean, so why not make the most of it?! Aruba is a smart choice flight-wise, as there are many direct flights from New York City and other hubs. Oh, how I miss those direct east coast flights! Regardless of what time of year you visit, you're sure to have a fabulous time. Aruba is nicknamed "One Happy Island" and my guess is that you'll be one h[...]
 
 
There are certain destinations that truly "live up" to their hype and Aruba is definitely among them. I can't begin to tell you how many people I met on the island who return year after year. A special place for so many people, it didn't take long to understand the island's mass appeal. During my four days on Aruba, I made the most of my time while not outdoing myself (it happens). I've found that[...]
 
 
I fell in love with Hong Kong like so many others: quick and effortless. It's funny how a few months in a city can completely change your perceptions. For whatever reason, Hong Kong was never a city I "needed" to see. Sure, it intrigued me but it wasn't a place I yearned to explore. Yet, as fate would have it, I'd spend part of 2015 in the heart of Hong Kong Island and loving every minute of it. E[...]
 
 
Before arriving to Chiang Mai, I expected it to be a budget-backpacker paradise. For years I've been hearing (and reading) about how affordable it is to live in Thailand, and Chiang Mai in particular. However, I also found the city to be luxurious, too. My personal travel style is one that bridges the gap between the two. I'm all about saving money but I also can't resist a relaxing massage or a f[...]
 
 
During my summer living in Hong Kong, Taiwan was near the top of my list of countries to visit. Unfortunately, I never made it there (yet!) so for now, it remains on my travel bucketlist. That said, I took advantage of Hong Kong's amazing food scene and indulged in a few decadent Taiwanese meals. For those of you who are based in New York, you're about to have the same opportunity. Here are 5 ways[...]
 
 
You don't have to be a wine fanatic to appreciate Lavaux, but it certainly helps. Rooted in tradition, many wines from this region are still made like the Benedictines and Cistercian monks did in the 11th century. If you're a white wine drinker, you're in for an extra special treat.What to expect Before landing in Switzerland, I fully anticipated feasting on chocolates but wine tasting never [...]
