Escape of the Week: Tel Aviv’s street art in photos

Street art in Tel Aviv is alive and well — something I learned recently on my tour with Mekomy and the start-up’s founder, Gilad Uziley. What I learned on the tour is that the street art scene in Tel Aviv, while it flourishes in the warehouse neighborhood of Florentin, extends well beyond this mostly rundown,Continue reading “Escape of the Week: Tel Aviv’s street art in photos”

Escape of the Week: Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

It’s 4 a.m., and I am awake in my bed, heart thumping in my chest with excitement, because I know in 30 minutes, my dad will be knocking on my door, telling me to wake-up, and then I will be bounding down our creaky, carpeted steps into the kitchen to pet Flash, our black andContinue reading “Escape of the Week: Rehoboth Beach, Delaware”

Daily Wanderlust: Split from above

It’s been nearly four years since I started d travels ’round. In that time, I have traveled much of Europe, parts of Africa, SE Asia and have become an expat in Thailand. To say four years flies by is a HUGE understatement. Today, I want to pay homage to the town that started this life ofContinue reading “Daily Wanderlust: Split from above”

Escape of the Week: Downtown Las Vegas

Downtown Las Vegas has always held a special place in my heart. I remember the first time I ever went to Vegas, fresh off of my ninth grade year in high school. My father drove us down past Fremont Street and the glittering lights and seeing Vegas Vic welcoming visitors to town with an armContinue reading “Escape of the Week: Downtown Las Vegas”

Daily Wanderlust: Storms on Samui

There is a gentle breeze in the air and dark, ominous clouds hovering over our heads as Paula and I make our way from the main loop road in Lamai down to the beach on one of Thailand’s biggest islands, Koh Samui. “It definitely looks like it is going to rain,” we say to eachContinue reading “Daily Wanderlust: Storms on Samui”

Daily Wanderlust: floating in Sri Lanna National Park

The boat that whisks us some 20 minutes from the red-dirt mainland to the floating bungalows and restaurant is loud. Super loud. But none of us care. A quick drive from Chiang Mai (about 75 minutes) takes city-dwellers to another world … filled with water and tree-covered mountains. The perfect day trip for those looking forContinue reading “Daily Wanderlust: floating in Sri Lanna National Park”

Daily Wanderlust: the vibrant Valley of Fire

Located outside of Las Vegas, the Valley of Fire is a site to behold. With enormous outcroppings of orange-hued rock set against lime green cacti and bright blue sky, the beauty of the southwest desert comes alive here. It is one of my favorite spots to explore and offers gorgeous drives and stunning hikes aroundContinue reading “Daily Wanderlust: the vibrant Valley of Fire”

Daily Wanderlust: the tranquility of Solta, Croatia

There are few places in the world I refer to as “paradise.” Very few. Solta, Croatia is one of them. A 45-minute ferry ride from the charming city of Split, this little  technicolor island is void of tourists. Here, you can get a sweet taste of the slow island life and enjoy everything from fresh-pressedContinue reading “Daily Wanderlust: the tranquility of Solta, Croatia”

Daily Wanderlust: Bullets and Bosnia

From memorials like the one in Berlin to museums in Rwanda to simply a pock-marked building telling the tales of those who were silenced … images like these haunt my mind. In Bosnia-Herzegovina, the remnants of war can be found in many places. Even in the heart of Sarajevo, there are stories to be toldContinue reading “Daily Wanderlust: Bullets and Bosnia”

Daily Wanderlust: Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial

There are few places which resonate with me more than memorials to those who have been killed due to simply being who they are. In my travels, I’ve always sought out places like this to pay my respects for the atrocities the human race has befallen onto others. In Rwanda, I visited the Kigali MemorialContinue reading “Daily Wanderlust: Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial”
