Block Island, RI

By |2021-05-10T12:41:05+00:00August 31st, 2016||

With equally picturesque water and shore landscapes, Block Island has been a favorite spot of mine since my initial sailing excursion there a few years back. Formed by glaciers that pushed their way down the East Coast ten thousand years ago, the rocky landscapes that make up its shoreline lie 15 miles from Montauk Point, and ...

An Off-Season Guide to Nantucket, MA

By |2021-05-05T19:29:28+00:00August 22nd, 2016||

Though I'm now embarrassed to admit it, our invitation to Nantucket felt confusing. The only preconception I had of the island were thanks to J. Crew magazines—and therefore the only mental pictures I could conjure up were of model types wearing "Nantucket red" (aka pink) polo shirts with popped collars on fancy boats. ...

American Tourism in Cuba: How We Legally Visited a Long-Forbidden Gem

By |2021-05-05T19:35:55+00:00July 17th, 2016||

In June of 2016, we escaped Brooklyn to a place that felt much more like time travel than jetsetting. We "escaped" our familiar American culture and all that comes with it: the internet, our credit cards, cell phones, and readily available anything. We went to Cuba. Armed with a government approved itinerary, a Spanish-English ...

Roadtripping Through the Pacific Northwest

By |2021-05-05T19:38:55+00:00May 3rd, 2016||

The Pacific Northwest is filled with iconic landscapes, dense forests, and coastline scenery so beautiful that it would turn even the most modest Instagrammer into a feed-spamming nightmare. After moving to the West Coast from New York, I've made the trip here many times, but on my most recent visit to what's commonly referred to ...

Roadtripping Through Iceland

By |2021-05-05T19:47:34+00:00February 16th, 2016||

Over the past couple months, I noticed more and more of my photographer friends were visiting Iceland. Even more of the Instagrammers I follow were visiting, too. No doubt this is because the scenery here is stunning–with tall, snowy mountains, winding dirt roads, tall pine trees and striking black beaches. Iceland is a no-fail, ...

Ojai, California

By |2021-01-06T16:59:51+00:00January 14th, 2016||

Ojai is a small, sleepy town nestled at the foot of the Topatopa Mountains in Ventura County, California. Just two hours and 80 miles northwest of L.A., it's quickly becoming a destination–not only for Los Angolans, but also drawing in creative types from places like Brooklyn, Denver, and Austin. So what's the draw? First, ...

Paradise in Granada, Nicaragua

By |2021-01-06T14:48:23+00:00January 13th, 2016||

Last August, my husband and I sealed the deal, getting married in Phoenicia before heading to Nicaragua for nine days. We picked our honeymoon based on a single Instagram photo we’d seen: a woman floating in a black rubber tube, in a pool that overlooked a lush, green mountain. The photo encompassed the things we wanted in ...

Roadtrip from Nashville to Cookeville, TN

By |2021-05-05T19:50:50+00:00December 3rd, 2015||

On our last roadtrip from Dallas to Austin, Denny and I explored both cities and their outskirts over a six day jaunt. During those six days, we stayed in four different Airbnbs, swam in a natural spring, caught some bands, sampled local craft beers, and ate way too many tacos. We also met another travel ...

A New Yorker’s Guide to Tulum, Mexico

By |2021-05-05T20:28:14+00:00November 17th, 2015||

Tulum is a unique gem in Mexico’s Riviera Maya district, an area on the Caribbean coastline of Quintana Roo known mostly as a destination for all-inclusive resort and boutique hotels. While one can certainly take a luxurious, relaxation-filled trip to Tulum, the vibrant town offers limitless possibilities for a more adventurous, hands-on ...

Fort Collins, Colorado

By |2021-05-05T20:31:48+00:00October 31st, 2015||

On short notice, my husband Kai and I decided to visit my folks out in Fort Collins, Colorado. We make the trip out west once to twice a year, because besides our family, it’s one of our favorite places to visit. Colorado is one of those states with countless destinations–some of the ...
