By | January 15th, 2018|

San Diego is the kind of city you visit in order to relax. It’s the type of place you kick up your feet and enjoy the atmosphere – a mix of beaches and chilled city life – whilst sipping on a drink or just taking in the sun.

10 Places in Italy You Cannot Miss

By | January 5th, 2018|

I either owe or blame Italy for turning me into a world traveler. After my semester abroad in Florence (my first time stepping outside the United States!) I was full of wonder, curiosity, and a desire to continue my travels. Italy lit up this fire inside of me, it gave me history, it gave me art, and most importantly it gave me cuisine. I became hungry. I left Florence with a newfound desire to become a sommelier.

Awesome things to do in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula

By | January 2nd, 2018|

Dense jungle, pristine beaches, Mayan ruins and vibrant culture – Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula has it all. Home to famous resort towns such as Cancun and Playa del Carmen, the area is a popular destination for visitors of all ages and interests and is a stop-off point on many Caribbean cruise itineraries. However, given its vast size and sheer range of sights and attractions, many visitors only begin to scratch the surface of this fascinating land. With an excellent road system and comprehensive bus network, this is the perfect area to get off the beaten track and experience the real Mexico.

Not Home for the Holidays? Cheer Up!

By | December 24th, 2017|

December in Minnesota is beautiful - still subject to frigid sub-zero temps and blistery winds, but aesthetically speaking…beautiful. I’m not biased, either. I grew up in North Carolina where we were barely blessed with a sprinkling of snow on Christmas Day. Somehow, a blue Christmas just never excited me.

California Iconic Movie Locations

By | December 21st, 2017|

Home to Hollywood and the stars, California has a long and rich history as the home of modern cinema. Whilst today film crews travel the world in search of the perfect backdrops for the next blockbuster, not so long-ago budgets were a little tighter and producers had to work with what they had on their doorsteps. From the beaches of LA to the Sierra Nevada mountains, you’ll be amazed at just how many of your favourite movie scenes have been filmed in America’s Golden State. Here are some of our favourites that you can still visit today.

Famous Movie Backdrops In London

By | December 18th, 2017|

The British Film industry is an unassuming one. It’s sometimes hard to think of films which Britain has actually made. However, did you know that parts of the US hit series 24 was actually filmed in the small city of Southampton, UK? Despite being set in the US. You would be surprised by the scale and number of productions which have actually taken place on UK soil.

Model On The Move: Do’s & Don’ts

By | December 14th, 2017|

In proper “Model On The Run Away” form, I thought it was only fitting to describe my life as a model…on the move. I find myself in constant motion – be it running to last-minute castings with a bag full of makeup and heels, or flying 40,000 feet above the ground on the way to my next destination. It’s not an easy life, though. Changing countries every three months, being informed of a job the night before with no time to prep, lugging two large suitcases from one end of Milan to the other…it’s hardly as glamorous as one might think. But being a model has taught me to tackle life’s little roadblocks, to appreciate the changes that come along with such a hectic lifestyle. And along the way, I’ve realized a few things.

By | December 11th, 2017|

Christmas is around the corner, it’s time to start playing those Christmas songs and truly get into the Christmas spirit.

Do the songs sound better in other languages?

24 Hours In Mumbai: Sights, Smells, Soul.

By | December 8th, 2017|

I’ve spent the past ten months in Mumbai, working as a model and freelance writer. The city certainly gives me a lot to talk about. I’m an American, born and raised, so imagine the confusion of my family and friends back home when I said, “Guys, I’ve fallen in love with India and I’m not coming home!” Mumbai holds an energy that even the most skilled writers have difficulty expressing in words. It’s best described as a city of extremes – from noisy streets littered with cars, children, and animals, to serene gulleys lined with temples and houses of generations’ old families.

The unofficial capital of England’s West Country, Bristol is a thriving University town dating back to 1155 when it was one of England’s most important cities. Whilst considered by many an excellent base for exploring the region, the city itself is a diverse and exciting destination in its own right.

5 of the Most Exotic Dances Around The World

By | December 2nd, 2017|

I’ve always loved the combination of dance and travel. To me, there is nothing more exciting than seeing different cultures come together through dance. Whether it’s a wild street party in Columbia or a traditional wedding in Turkey, there is always a reason to get up off your feet for a little boogie!

Unique souvenir ideas to make your travel memories last forever

By | November 28th, 2017|

Souvenir hunting is a must activity during any trip. We often want to bring gifts for our friends and family, colleagues at work and, of course, ourselves. Moreover, the temptation to buy magnets and postcards is often great. But do not let it take over. In order to make travel memories last forever, but at the same time get something meaningful and useful, plan your purchases in advance. Research the place you are traveling to, find out about the local culture and visit little flea markets. All of this will help you find unique, authentic and special things, which will warm your heart and remind about happy moments of your journey. Believe me a little handmade necklace will please you more than any colorful magnet on the fridge.

What to pack for a cold weather trip

By | November 23rd, 2017|

So many people are fond of traveling and exploring new places. But very few of us enjoy the process of packing the suitcase, even if there is an exciting journey waiting ahead. Despite our feelings, the quality of the trip depends on how well we have picked the items to bring with us. In my experience, it is always easier during the summer, because two pairs of shorts and a couple of T-shirts are pretty much enough for a short vacation. But if it is cold outside, you really don’t want to walk around searching for a coat or feel freezing just because you have forgotten your winter boots.
