New York, New York
Hello! I live here! Naturally I was thrilled to see the home I know and love pop up in your favorite destinations, let alone in the #1 spot! Please travel here, see the sites, eat the deliciousness, wander through the museums, do all the things. Don’t overlook the Frick Collection or the New York Historical Society.
Pack your travel umbrellas friends, because London made the #2 spot! Honestly, I thought it’d be Paris, but I’m so excited to see that you’re exploring and loving London, a lot. With so much history, culture, and more exciting restaurants by the day, I can’t wait to go back. Now, where’s the best afternoon tea, weekend market, and Instagram op? Spill!
Ah, ma belle ville, j’adore. Whether I’m hustling from meeting to meeting or digging for vintage treasure, all activities are more fun in Paris. Even the simplest moments, walking down a street, buying a cup of coffee, or reading a book in a cafe seem to be swathed in romance and beauty. And that’s before we even get to the carbs…
You had me at pasta. But I’ll stick around for the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and the gelato while I’m at it. Honestly just tell the cab to let me out anywhere in this ancient, astounding city, I’ll be fine. It’s one of my all-time favorite destinations.
Since this is the only time you guys suggested a country as a whole, I’m intrigued. This Nordic island country is best known for tourism via Reykjavik, its capital. It’s also known for tons of volcanoes, hot springs, and geysers—and puffins, don’t forget the puffins. They’re like smaller, better-dressed penguins. Anyone who loves to spend most of their vacation outdoors, but needs something a bit more active (and certainly colder) than the beach, should book a flight stat.
I want to travel here so badly I can’t stand it. The culture, the Izakayas, the shopping. Cliche, I know, but I’m one Lost In Translation viewing away from impulse purchasing a 14-hour flight.
Just hit “book flight,” honestly. What’s to think about? White, cubiform house-lined cliffs, breathtakingly blue waters, and all the Greek cuisine (arguably one of the best cuisines, come on—all the dips) to enjoy. Bring your best camera and set a reminder for sunset, trust me.
Hong Kong, China
An unmistakable skyline, and night markets you could wander for hours—sign me up! I feel like I could spend weeks here and still have museums and monuments left to visit—there’s seriously a lot to do. If you’re planning a trip, look to late October-December, that way you’ll avoid monsoon/typhoon season, which can ruin a trip, fast.
Mexico City, Mexico
I’m going to need details on these Mexico City trips, people. The city is huge (573 sq miles, what?) and I’ll want to maximize my time and preferably have a detailed map of the best restaurants, thanks. The Frida Kahlo museum obviously tops my to-dos, along with the Palacio Nacional to see Diego Rivera’s famous mural The History of Mexico. Actually all of the museums in Mexico City are on my list, please help me narrow things down thank you.
I’m sorry, we can take boats instead of cars and that’s a normal thing and there’s pasta and wine and the buildings are colorful and gorgeous and all the bridges are good for ‘gramming?! WHEN DO WE LEAVE.
Our third Italian destination which I’m not angry about in the least, Tuscany is the wine-lover’s adventure of dreams. Visit the vineyards, taste from the vineyards, even stay at the vineyards. Just make sure that at all points on your trip, when you look up all you can see are rolling green hills of vines and preferably a stunning sunset. That’s how you know you’re doing it right.
I feel like every yoga class I’d take after this trip would be such a letdown. In general, we’re talking stunning surround, amazing (and affordable!) cuisine, and resorts that look like movie sets. Cool, so when we going?
