A video I did for National Geographic Travel - The Perfect Day in Quebec City
Fresh from being on assignment in Quebec City, I thought I'd make a list of some of my favorite finds. I also realize that while I had a full week to explore

Hot destinations and buzzy trends were the talk of the hoteliers, travel suppliers and advisers attending Virtuoso's annual symposium in Berlin earlier this spring. Virtuoso, a luxury travel agency consortium,

Love this time of year
For those of us blessed (or cursed) with incurable wanderlust, the allure of an unexplored city or destination is hard to resist. But, this time of year, what I crave is tradition and a deep-rooted sense of home. I asked ten of my most trusted friends around the world about their favorite winter traditions in their home cities, and it put me in a wonderful, festive, globally inspired mood. I hope their stories do the same for you. Happy Holidays!

Before this recent trip to Mexico, I had only a vague understanding of what the Day of the Dead was all about and had always found the holiday a little creepy. Come to find out, it's a heartwarming occasion that serves an important dual function.

Where I felt at home in Mexico City
I feel at home in Mexico City. This isn’t something I expected to encounter while exploring one of the world’s largest cities. I thought I would feel exhilarated and up for an adventure. But at home? Part of the reason I feel this way is because of where I’m staying: in Polanco.

Yep. I crave traveling alone.
My work and my wanderlust have led me to travel alone more often than not, and I’ve grown to embrace it, and even crave it. When I'm alone, extraordinary things happen on ordinary days all the time.

From my recent trip to Laos
Over the past decade, Luang Prabang has experienced an influx of investment--along with strict regulations stemming from its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The combination has helped the former royal capital of Laos maintain its status as one of Asia’s best-preserved cities, with original stone temples and French colonial architecture reflecting its complex heritage. Here are some tips on how to home in on the authentic and unexpect...

I take a salty, savory bite. It’s earthy and crisp. It is, as promised, one of the greatest Caesar salads I’ve ever had. In fact, the Caesar salad may be the most famous dish to emerge from Baja California: It originated in Tijuana. I found a similar level of artistry and care in restaurants across Los Cabos. And the olio of internationally inspired dishes on offer around town was a welcome change of pace. Check out seven of my favorite foodie fi...

In addition to drawing legions of surfing and yoga devotees, Puerto Vallarta offers dishes that surpass meals I’ve paid triple for in New York (don’t even get me started on the ceviche) -- and a rich cultural heritage that can be felt on the streets, in the shops, and in boutique hotels around the city.

My latest on National Geographic Travel
As a (proud) American and a traveler who enjoys a bit of romance and tradition, I find the monarchy endlessly fascinating. The royals put on a show for their subjects, especially in England, where each castle and historic site shines with pomp and circumstance.

My first visit to One Love was great - I felt like the doctor was taking care of us and I felt like we had found our new vet. However, thanks to an emergency situation with my dog, I immediately switched vets because they could not be competent enough to return a phone call. My dog swallowed some medicine and had to be put on IV's and stay in a hospital for two nights. On the first day, I wanted to get a second opinion and talk to my vet. After calling once in the morning, waiting until 4 p.m. without a call back, I called again. I was told the vet was in surgery but would return my call after that. I called again at 6 p.m. and was promised she'd return my call before the end of the day. Guess what? No call. So I'm left worrying all night while my dog is in the hospital (getting great care from Blue Pearl in Brooklyn but still I wanted to talk to a vet!). If they can't be bothered to return a phone call during an emergency situation, I can't trust them at all.
