Friends often ask me for advice in planning their New Years trips and one thing that’s often come up is avoiding Zika. Whether child-planning or not being able to be sick during award season, there are tons of very practical reasons to avoid Zika during your holiday travels. Here are the top 10 places for you to spend the holidays Zika-free!
As an avid seafood eater — I’m in an Oyster lovers meet up group — one thing several people told me when I mentioned I was heading to Hawaii was “You’re going to love the fresh seafood!” And with tons of poke focused restaurants recently opening up in NYC, Hawaiian cuisine was definitely on my radar. So I ate my way through Kaua’i and Waikiki, here are some of my favorite stops along the way.
Every day, I like to do at least one thing that I’ve never done before. I’m an adrenaline junky, so when that new experience coincides with something that can get my heart racing? Man, that’s awesome.
This summer, traveling around with my Fujifilm Instax, I absolutely fell in love. There’s something to be said about waiting for the right moment. And the film’s pretty expensive so you don’t want to waste it on just anything. Here’s the first of a photo diary series I’m doing with just my photos from my Fujifilm Instax camera from my trip to Kaua’i & Oahu, Hawaii.
Kaua’i is beautiful. Quite honestly, it’s the most naturally beautiful place I’ve ever been to. Many Hawaiians told me it was their favorite island and it’s easy to see why: from blessings to peaks, I absolutely fell in love with this island if you can remember from my article for Vice’s Amuse. The locals are pretty beautiful as well. Which brings me to the latest edition of Never Date a Traveler – Kaua’i. Screw roses and chocolates; a zip-tied bouquet of gardenias (see polaroid above), yummy starfruit and breadfruit make this the best first date gifting situation yet! Hear all about it on Soundcloud or iTunes!
he most isolated island chain in the world, Hawaii is no easy feat to get to for me as a New Yorker. It was definitely worth the 11 hours via airplane, and a lot of that had to do with my time spent in Kaua’i. Here’s how to spend 48 hours in Hawaiians favorite island, the Garden Isle.
