More Croissants

The thing I love about Paris is how many times you can visit and still discover ironically new vintage shops and overpriced Bordeauxs.  Traveling to the ‘city of love’ with America’s Next Top Diva and a walking History Channel, I stepped off the RER ready for a weekend of croissants and window shopping down the Champs-Élysées […]

A Solo Trip to Bali, Indonesia

Dreaming of palm readings and terrace bike rides since even before “Eat, Pray, Love,” I knew from the moment I stepped off the plane in Jakarta that Indonesia would be nothing like anything I had ever experienced before.
