Captivating, Vibrant Turkey.
Historic architecture, awe inspiring rock formations, crystal blue waters, a vibrant art / culture / design scene. It’s tough not to love Turkey. But it’s the scintillating conversations and friendships forged with those born and raised here that, for me, make this country unforgettable.

It’s Brooklyn. But with Beaches.
Fourth of July at Coney Island exemplifies the phrase : We are all Americans. First named by the Lenape, then by the Dutch, who dubbed it “Rabbit Island” (a translation of “Conyne Eylandt”), this beloved playground for young and old still pays respect to NYC in all its diverse glory. Just try keeping track of all the languages spoken here. Then, there’s Nathan’s, the Boardwalk, street art, a day-long dance party, that glorious Wonder Wheel, and a long stretch of densely populated beach…It’s a New York institution in every aspect.

No matter how many times I visit, Paris surprises me and holds me in thrall. The parks in bloom, the pâtisseries, the small, private museums of the Marais and beyond, the constantly shifting food scene, the old (and new) bookstores, awe-inspiring architecture, plus the Pompidou, the Musée du Quai Branly, the luminous light, and the DOGS!
Dogs, dogs, dogs, everywhere!
