Italy and Europe

Amalfi Coasting. Capri, Italy

Highlights include: Singing along at famous piano bar Anema E Core, sailing the blue grotto, and lemon pizza!

48 hours of carnival. Venice, Italy

Carnival, the world’s oldest party, a once in a lifetime must see. Takes place every February in Venice.

Castles in the Sky. Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany is dreamy in the summer, but did you know you can ski there too? And stay in a castle?

Eating Emiglia Romagna. Modena and Bologna, Italy.

Food lovers! This is the BEST region to eat in all of Italy. Home of parmigian cheese, prosciutto, and more.

Mandali Yoga/Meditation Retreat. Northern Italy

Self care with a gorgeous backdrop. if you want some piece & quiet spend a few days here. Shhh!

Summer in the south. Calabria & Aeolia Islands, Italy

The undiscovered South, down to earth with great beaches, not too crowded, and delicious of course.

Summertime in Formentera, Spain. 2018.

Formentera is like the Caribbean of Europe. Here’s why.

 

Drones and Dolomites. Bressanone, Italy

Go here for skiing, incredible mountain views, and delicious food influenced by Austria and Germany.

Hidden treasures of Napoli. Naples, Italy

Pizza, pizza, pizza. Also happens to be a vibrant little city and the gateway to some of Italy’s best coastal towns.

Croatia, August 2015.

A cheesy movie trailer from a sailboat trip around Croatia with some friends.

Caribbean and Central America

Dominica. The highlight of this trip for me was Secret Bay, an eco-friendly boutique hotel with only six villas on a private beach. They even made it on the April cover of Travel + Leisure.

Jumby Bay Island, Antigua. If you’re looking for a luxurious relaxing getaway, this is it. The private island resort has pristine beaches, luxurious spa, and even a turtle sanctuary.

 

Nosara & La Fortuna, Costa Rica, January 2019.

Over the holidays some friends and I stayed at this dreamy yoga/surf hotel called Bodhi Tree. (My second time there, I highly recommend!) We also drove 10 hours into the rainforest to see sloths :)

Isla Holbox, Mexico, October 2018.

You know how the best places are the hardest to get to? That is the case here. But only a 2 hour drive and short ferry ride later, you can kick off your shoes and relax in this beautiful and authentic beach town that’s still pretty undiscovered.

Cuba, 2016

Spent the holidays in Havana and Vinales exploring the classic cars, cigars, and salsa. A big shout out to my tour guide Rita, with Like A Cuban.

South America

Jacuma, Brazil, February 2019.

I was invited by friends at Salesforce.com to document their annual volunteer trip. They installed solar lights throughout poor NE Brazilian communicates living without light or electricity. Volunteer trips are a great way to travel and meet the locals.

Southeast Asia

Saibadee! Let’s get to know Aussie entrepreneur Caroline. She is the owner of Tamarind, who created one of the best restaurants in all of Laos.

Hanoi, Vietnam, October 2017.

On a film scout to Hanoi, I spent the day exploring the city via Uber Scooter.

Music, beautiful mountainous landscapes, and a beach owned by penguins. How can you not love Cape Town?!

NYC

Morocco, November 2014.

Roadtrip through Marrakech and the Erg Chebbi desert.

NYC, March 2014.

Meet Mario, I interviewed him about La Panineria, his amazing little Italian sandwich shop. When he moved here from Naples he barely spoke English, now he runs a successful business in NYC’s priciest hood.
