Tel Aviv. One of my favorite cities in the world (not just because my best friend happens to live there). It is a city I have been to three times in less than two years, and located in a country I have been to four times (which is tied with England for top visits). EveryContinue reading “10 things to do in Tel Aviv”

When you go numb
There’s a pressure mounting in my veins. I can feel my heart race at night, before I go to sleep. The anxieties I fought so hard to quiet, surfacing and swirling in my mind, prohibiting my body to surrender to quiet. To black. To dreams. I’m in Madrid.
Boutique Luxury at Hotel Indigo Paddington
Light blue twinkling lights hang on what looks like an artistic interpretation of a Christmas tree in the lobby of Hotel Indigo Paddington. We’re in the heart London’s Paddington neighborhood and for the next two nights, the converted townhouse of Hotel Indigo is home.
Discovering Ferrari and Pavarotti Land
The birthplace of Lambrusco. Of Ferrari. Of Pavarotti. Of balsamic vinegar. Of magical sunsets dipping down behind ancient walls.

21 photos from Italy’s Cinque Terre region
Oh, Cinque Terre. With its emerald green tree-topped hills, brightly colored homes crawling up to the sky, steep drops of gray cliffs and a pounding (at times) blue Ligurian Sea, this gorgeous slice of Italian seaside is one of the most renowned — and recognized — places in the world.
History and charm: Riomaggiore’s Alla Marina
We stand outside the cafe, a gorgeous stone terrace with little tables, overlooking the tranquil blue water of the Ligurian Sea (a far cry from the tumultuous experience the day before when attempting to take Cinque Terre’s water ferry). Mom and I stand waiting, our suitcases at our sides, when the owner of Alla MarinaContinue reading “History and charm: Riomaggiore’s Alla Marina”
