From cities to jungles, I write about culture, travel and adventure


TRIPSAVVY: If you’re looking for a true hidden gem to discover in the Caribbean Sea, then look no further than the island nation of Grenada, in the Windward Islands. Located in the West Indies, Grenada is known as the “Spice Island” of the Caribbean and remains an agricultural destination, where visitors can witness firsthand (and participate in the process) of nutmeg, cocoa, and rum.

(4 September 2019)

TRIPSAVVY: September is a wonderful month to visit the Caribbean—the weather is warm and the crowds are small—but you still have to prepare for the chance of tropical storms. Learn more about what to do and what to pack.

(3 September 2019)


FORBES: Much has been written about the glory that is Cape Cod in the summertime, and while there’s no denying the appeal of a New England weekend during the hottest months of the year, less has been said about the most underrated (and picture-perfect) season to visit: The fall.

(31 August 2019)

FORBES: Traveling during the shoulder season is not only cheaper than the busier periods of summer and winter, it's also a uniquely beautiful time of year to be outdoors. From the Caribbean Sea to the Arctic Circle, here's where to travel in fall 2019.

(28 August 2019)

FORBES: From the jungles of Central America to the Tongass National Forest of Southeast Alaska, we've identified parts of the planet that still boast an unspoiled natural beauty. If you love the outdoors and going into the wild (quite literally) when you travel, here are three spots to visit next.

(27 August 2019)


TRIPSAVVY: As the capital of the Bahamas, Nassau is undoubtedly the most convenient location to call home when visiting the island nation. But don't think of yourself as landlocked in New Providence for the duration of your stay.

(27 August 2019)

FORBES: There is more to Newport, Rhode Island than meets the eye—though, of course, what greets you when you cross the Pell Bridge is endlessly appealing to all of the senses. From attending beach polo matches to visiting Gilded Age mansions, read on for how to spend a weekend in Newport, Rhode Island.

(26 August 2019)

THE BERNARDSVILLE NEWS: Iceland has become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks in no small part to social media (the striking water of the Blue Lagoon was seemingly designed for Instagram) as well as a certain fantasy television show on HBO. As the setting of the Night’s Watch, “Game of Thrones” has made this Nordic country a favorite destination of travelers worldwide who are looking to visit the show’s iconic filming locations.

(22 August 2019)

TRIPSAVVY: The Bahamian nation consists of 700 islands spread out across 100,000 square miles. While there is a specific allure to each of these outer islands, we recommend you resist the temptation to swim with pigs, in favor of booking an authentic cultural experience in the Bahamian city of Nassau. Located on the island of New Providence, Nassau is the political and cultural capital of the island chain.

(22 August 2019)


TRIPSAVVY: The Bahamas are located in the northwestern West Indies, only 50 miles south-east of the Florida coast. Thanks to its northerly positioning in the Caribbean Sea, and the prevalent trade-winds (so beloved and capitalized by pirates in centuries past), there’s no bad time to visit the Bahamas.

(20 August 2019)

FORBES: How to have an ultra-private (and ultra-unique) travel experience in one of the most popular vacation spots in the world? From the best adventure activities to the ultimate in Nordic luxury, here’s how to experience Iceland’s most famous attraction like an insider.

(10 August 2019)

FORBES: Collectively known as “America's Paradise,” the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) are made up of three primary landmasses—St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas—plus a dozen or so little ones floating in the Caribbean Sea. All are famous for pristine beaches, world-class snorkeling and diving, sailing and, of course, rum.

(30 July 2019)

FORBES: Henry James famously declared that there are no two words in the English language more beautiful than “summer afternoon.” Actually, there no sweeter words on a summer afternoon than “Amalfi coast.” This slice of Italian shoreline has become less of a destination than a mindset among travelers to the region. And there’s no town more iconic—or more Instagram-able—than Positano.

(28 July 2019)


FORBES: Croatia seems all the rage right now for international travelers looking for a destination that offers a welcome dose of sun and an inimitable serving of culture along the Mediterranean Sea. Yet the reasons to visit Croatia have long predated the popularity of Yacht Week or Game of Thrones.

(28 July 2019)

FORBES: The U.S. Virgin Islands (St. John, St. Thomas, St. Croix) are known as “America’s Paradise.” The reputation is well deserved. Whether it’s the breathtaking wilderness of St. John’s Virgin Islands National Park, St. Croix’s flourishing culinary scene or St. Thomas’s vibrant dockside nightlife, there’s no shortage of activities to explore.

(26 July 2019)

THE BERNARDSVILLE NEWS: While we agree with Elizabeth Gilbert’s overall message that travel is a vehicle for self-discovery, we don’t believe that a passport is required to “Eat, Pray, Love.” Sometimes you can feel the furthest away from home and daily life within the continental United States, and Sedona, Ariz., is one such magical place,

(24 July 2019)

FORBES: There’s more to the Amalfi Coast than just Positano, and there’s certainly a unique appeal to smaller, lesser-known towns and quieter fishing villages. Praiano, for example, is quite often a sleepy resort community, though that changes drastically from August 1 to August 4 during the Feast of the Luminara (known as the Luminara di San Domenico Festival).

(24 July 2019)


FORBES: There's a reason the novel The Talented Mr. Ripley occurs on the Amalfi Coast and that the film adaptation was filmed in Positano. The entire story hinges upon the prodigal (and privileged) son who refuses to return home to “subways and taxis and starched collars and a nine-to five job,” preferring to stay within the endless summer of the Amalfi Coast: “It isn’t as much fun as sailing a boat in old clothes and being answerable to nobody.”

(23 July 2019)

FORBES: The desert just got hotter. The Arabian desert, to be exact—spurred by the arrival of the latest haute hotel chain to make a splash in Dubai, also known as the nightlife authority in the Middle East; a land where Chanel is advertised on highway billboards and you can swim with sharks in the mall.

(10 July 2019)

FORBES: The desert just got hotter. The Arabian desert, to be exact—spurred by the arrival of the latest haute hotel chain to make a splash in Dubai, also known as the nightlife authority in the Middle East; a land where Chanel is advertised on highway billboards and you can swim with sharks in the mall.

(1 July 2019)

FORBES: American travelers, rejoice: As of June 17th, you no longer need to apply for a visa to visit the largest country in South America. Home to both the vast, untouched wilderness of the Rio Negro and the legendarily lively nightlife of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is overdue for its moment as a must-visit destination for its northern neighbors.

(30 June 2019)


FORBES: The longing to escape to the Florida Keys was immortalized in the words of Ernest Hemingway, who once declared, “I want to get to Key West and away from it all," And that he did—he returned stateside after his extended sojourn throughout Kenya. While the Keys may technically belong to the state of Florida this destination feels light years from the continental United States.

(29 June 2019)

RECORDER NEWSPAPERS: You don’t need to be on the brink of divorce and staring down a midlife crisis to pack up your bags and decamp to a villa in Tuscany. Perhaps that’s because the allure of Tuscany, the very heart of Italy, isn’t easily diminished by the passing of time. In fact, like a fine Tuscan wine, its appeal grows over the years.

(27 June 2019)

FORBES: The West Coast may boast endless days of sunshine throughout the year, but there’s simply no competing with an East Coast summer. The mass weekend exodus of city-dwellers from Memorial through Labor Day is a time-honored tradition up and down the Mid-Atlantic—from Boston to New York to Washington DC. Yet, no seaside destination is more popular at the moment than Montauk.

(24 June 2019)

THE TRAVEL HUB: Edinburgh is the ideal spot for an adventurous family vacation—the city is charming and steeped in history (appealing to Harry Potter-loving children who recognize the Hogwarts architecture). But it is also a quick train ride away from the countryside and the Scottish Highlands.

(19 June 2019)


THE TRAVEL HUB: There are few places in the world more iconic, or historic, than the Great Wall of China. And rightfully so. The scale of the endeavor, and the long history tracing to its creation, make it the ultimate bucket list destination. If the wall were in the U.S., it would cover the country from New York to California and back. I finally achieved my dream of visiting the Great Wall this past fall, and discovered that the experience far surpassed any conceivable expectations.

(18 June 2019)

THE TRAVEL HUB: In the past 12 months, I’ve trekked the Great Wall of China and embarked on a husky safari above the Arctic Circle. I’ve ventured into the Amazon Rainforest on a tiny, motorized canoe after nightfall, the stars in the sky reflecting on the black waters of the Rio Negro. I’ve risen at dawn to catch the sun rising over the Caribbean Sea in the West Indies and been woken from sleep to the sound of hippos returning to their riverside enclave in the Masai Mara at dawn.

(12 June 2019)

FORBES: “I was born and raised on a beach named after my family. It’s called Burke’s beach.” It was a Saturday in early February, the first of the month, and I was listening to the first professional surfer of Barbados tell me his life story. I was eager to learn more—not only because his upbringing sounded like a whimsical Caribbean fairytale (or, rather, Blue Crush for the turquoise-water set)…

(7 June 2019)

FORBES: Prefer your savasana with a side of passport stamps? Souljourn Yoga founder Jordan Ashley believes both are essential to wellness. Also essential? Giving back to the global community, young women especially. Finding your zen in beautiful places for an even more beautiful cause? Namaste, indeed.

(6 June 2019)


TRIPSAVVY: The best time to visit the Bahamas is from mid-April to early July, after the Spring Breakers have flown north and before hurricane season arrives in early August. Though the Bahamas are a reliably popular winter destination, its offseason charms have been largely overlooked: bookings are less expensive, beaches are less crowded, and there’s more of an opportunity to engage with the local culture via monthly festivals and weekly regattas.

(4 June 2019)

THE RECORDER NEWSPAPERS: Want to live like you own a private island without befriending Richard Branson? Look to South Caicos, one of the most far-flung islands in the Turk and Caicos archipelago. Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, this vividly hued oasis of white sand beaches and turquoise waters retains the unspoiled charms of a Caribbean escape.

(23 May 2019)

THE TRAVEL HUB: Gifting the perfect item to your friends and loved one always seems a little tricky. You want something that shows them that you understand them perfectly and wish to celebrate what makes them unique. We’ve covered travel gift guides for men and for women (and featured a special list for millennials), but what to get your most adventurous friend?

(22 May 2019)

BRIT + CO: It was an early morning in late January, though the temperature didn’t feel like the Polar Vortex I was used to in New York City. I was in the island nation of Dominica and about to embark on one of the most challenging hikes in the Caribbean. Though the hike’s length was only 2.75 miles, it was known for being as difficult as it was exhilarating due to the terrain. But, in the words of Drake, it was worth it just for the #views alone.

(2 May 2019)


BRIT + CO: America may be the world capital for a hedonistic good time (our country enshrines the pursuit of happiness, after all), but when it comes to the pursuit of love, Europe retains an undeniable charm. It’s fitting that the homeland of the Romance languages should remain the expert at seduction: "We’ll always have Miami" doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as "We’ll always have Paris."

(28 April 2019)

BRIT + CO: We may not all live to eat, but we certainly do have to eat to live — or, in this case, to travel. The food may not be the driving force for your next vacation, but it certainly enhances the overall experience, serving as a window into the heart and soul of a city or town.

(27 April 2019)

BRIT + CO: In our journey west, we’re trading in la dolce vita for la vida loca. And the description is apt: It is a feat of endurance to merely keep up with the boisterous energy of Spain’s famed coastal city. (New York may be known as the city that never sleeps, but Barcelona gives the Concrete Jungle a run for its money.) T

(24 April 2019)

BRIT + CO: “It’s only negative ten today, so it’s warm for the huskies. You’ll have to help them out a bit.” I pulled my (faux) fur scarf up above my nose while listening to my Lapland Safari guide, Olli, issue his instructions. I was above the Arctic Circle at Wild Motion Husky Farm in the wintry town of Ylläs in the Finnish Lapland, and the weather of the day was downright balmy for this Nordic part of the world.

(22 April 2019)


THE BERNARDSVILLE NEWS: If you think you’ve experienced all the Bahamas have to offer because you visited the islands for a weekend getaway (or spring break bacchanal), think again. There is more to the Bahamas than Senor Frogs and swimming with pigs although, of course, both activities certainly hold their own appeal. But just outside your resort, or inland from the sandy beach is a thriving culture and food scene at your fingertips.

(22 April 2019)

BRIT + CO: We already know about the allure of Dublin and Rome, but what about Rotterdam or Cardiff? If, in the immortal words of Humphrey Bogart, we’ll always have Paris, and, in the equally eternal reassurances of Billy Joel, Vienna waits for you, then what’s the rush to return to a city you already know?

(12 April 2019)

THE TRAVEL HUB: The Dixie Chicks may have been onto something with their quest for wide open spaces, though we’d argue that in the 50,000 years since we’ve left the African grasslands, those untouched spaces are harder and harder to find, particularly in the U.S.

(11 April 2019)

BRIT + CO: The sky was a vibrant blue when I awoke in Beijing. It was the last day of my trip and, though I was still experiencing jetlag from my flight from New York City a week earlier, I awoke even earlier than usual. Too excited to sleep, I watched the sun rise over the Wangjing Soho, a Zaha Hadid building outside the window of my hotel room in the Chinese capital.

(4 April 2019)


THE BERNARDSVILLE NEWS: “This stuff will fly you straight to Mars,” Capt. Jerry Dawa warned while pouring another rum punch. It was only my first refill, though I quickly understood that a second would be entirely beside the point. I was already on another planet entirely, or certainly a portion of the planet I hadn’t even known existed mere months ago.

(22 March 2019)

THE BERNARDSVILLE NEWS: It’s chic to complain about airports. It suggests so much about the sophistication of the speaker: I travel so often, I practically live in an airport and it’s horrible. I’m so important that each delay or minor inconvenience will have ripple effects on the rest of my life.

(11 March 2019)

BRIT + CO: From the clear blue water to the pink sand beaches, the Crystal Caves to the endless rum cocktails, it’s obvious to see why The Beach Boys were so intent on taking their pretty mamas to Bermuda.

(24 January 2019)

BRIT + CO: I’ve wanted to visit Kenya my entire life. And yes, there are other nations just as known for their wildlife or their endless plains. Yet, for reasons I can’t quite identify, I knew Kenya was the one place I needed to visit before I died. It was my ultimate bucket list adventure — one I (wrongfully) assumed required a honeymoon to experience.

(21 January 2019)


ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST: "I was really struck by the romance of the place,” actor Dominic West remembers of the first time he visited Glin Castle, the centuries-old, 20,000-square-foot fortress nestled on a sliver of Ireland's coast along the North Atlantic Ocean. It's no wonder—he was attending the 21st birthday party of the woman, Catherine Fitzgerald, who decades later would become not only his wife but also his co-owner of the Glin Castle estate.

(17 January 2019)

BRIT + CO: It has a long and storied history, but chances are you may not have heard of Watch Hill until Taylor Swift put the Rhode Island town on the social media map. Her once-celebrated, now discontinued annual 4th of July party was extensively documented on Instagram and in the celebrity press, and suddenly, the picturesque town was introduced to America (via Instagram, of course) as the playground of the young, the blonde, and the insanely wealthy.

(15 January 2019)

BRIT + CO: Wine, pasta, cheese, more wine… What’s not to love about la dolce vita? For this installation of our European city guides (we’ve visited Dublin and covered Budapest), we’re focusing on that most romantic (and immortal) Italian city: Rome.You don’t have to be fluent in a Romance language to understand the beauty of the city’s culture, not to mention its rich heritage.

(14 January 2019)

BRIT + CO: Street art has undergone something of an image makeover in recent decades. What was once considered a sign of disrespect to a neighborhood is now (rightfully) celebrated as a cultural touchstone of art and identity.

(6 January 2019)


BRIT + CO: So you want to go into the wild on your next vacation, but you’re not sure which path (read: resort, igloo, wigwam, treehouse) will get you there? To paraphrase the immortal words of Robert Frost, (who was supposedly being sarcastic in this famous poem, but nevertheless): We took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.

(30 December 2018)

BRIT + CO: We know there can be no summer without winter, no warmth without cold, but forgive us for thinking that perhaps the lesson doesn’t need to be learned for the entirety of November through April.

(27 December 2018)

BRIT + CO: As a travel writer who spent most of her 20s in a state of aimless exploration (though now I call it “research”), I like to think I’ve seen much of what the country has to offer — regarding nightlife, at the very least.

BRIT + CO: Whether you’re eagerly anticipating the first snowfall of the season or dreading a possible return of the Polar Vortex, there’s no mistaking the chill in the air: Winter is coming.

(18 November 2018)

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST: In typical Los Angeles fashion, the idea for Mulholland Distilling originated at a party. “I met a fellow by the name of Doug from North Carolina and we just started drinking whiskey and talking about life,” remembers cinematographer Matt Alper, who, along with actor Walton Goggins, co-founded the spirits brand and private salon, The Mulholland Room.

You don’t have to be “in West Philadelphia, born and raised” to enjoy a visit to the City of Brotherly Love.

Home to both the Edith Wharton- and Henry James-type characters who inhabited the Gilded Age mansions along Bellevue and an endless assortment of old salts who’ve sailed north for the summertime, Newport is one of the nation’s premier resort towns.
