Rock stars of the classical world, the 2Cellos bring a rock and roll sensibility to their concerts. I talked with Luka Sulic about his Slovenian background, traveling around the world and his love of National Parks.

I recently interviewed the songwriting duo Zina Goldrich and Marcy Heisler. We talked about their work (which includes projects with Julie Andrews and Junie B. Jones) and some of their travels. Read more about them in my syndicated column, which runs nationwide. Here it is in the +Los Angeles Times:

Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?

Goldrich: On the fancy side, I love a little town in Tuscany called Castellina in Chianti. I'd recommend visiting the neighboring villages. San Gimignano is an old city with towers, which seem not so tall by modern standards -- but great history; also, a quick trip to Palio di Siena to watch a horse race. Closer to home, I love Great Barrington in the Berkshires (Massachusetts).

Heisler: As a Midwestern transplant and as someone who doesn't get to travel recreationally that often, I always enjoy going back to my childhood home of Chicago. It's an absolutely wonderful city and the architecture is beautiful. As a writer, I love quiet places by the water. Martha's Vineyard is very special to me, as is Traverse City, Mich. I travel a lot to Los Angeles for work and my family has relocated there -- my sister in L.A. and my parents in Palm Springs. It's becoming like a second home to me.

Q: What kind of research do you do before you go away on a trip?

Sophie Simmons: I research the language, the food and the political situation. I never want to arrive in a country without knowing where they stand politically. Not that it would deter me, but I just like to know what I'm walking into.

Many fans of reality TV are familiar with Mandana Dayani from her days on "The Rachel Zoe Project." A former attorney and vice president of Zoe's fashion empire, she offered a cool and calm presence on the sometimes frenetic series. Dayani has parlayed her love of vintage pieces, fashion and antiques into a new career with the tech startup, Everything But the House (ebth.com), which makes estate sales accessible online. Based out of Los Angeles as EBTH's chief brand officer, Dayani took time to talk with us about her favorite places, some of which she highlights on her Instagram feed.

My interview with "Dr. Ken" star Suzy Nakamura is already online at various sites, including the +Chicago Tribune and +Los Angeles Times. Her favorite destination?

"I really love Bali, Indonesia," she says. "I’ve been twice and it’s one of those magical places that you never forget. You are surrounded by art and nature everywhere you go. I stayed on the southwest side in Canggu and it was pretty easy to hop over to Ubud, or a beach in Kuta, or shopping in Seminyak, or dinner in Denpasar. I was in awe of the rice paddy fields. Who knew you could be moved by agriculture? I sure didn’t. But I was humbled or moved by something every day I was there."

Before retiring, Mark C. Lee flew on four NASA space flights, traveled more than 13 million miles, circled the globe 517 times and did an untethered spacewalk. In 1992, he and his then-wife, Nancy Jan Davis, made history by becoming the first married astronauts to fly together in space. Based out of the Houston area, Lee -- an engineer -- spoke about what it was like to view the earth from his unique perspective. For more information about the space program, check out NASA's website (https://www.nasa.gov).
