To Travel is to Live

I know, I know, what does the picture above have to do with traveling?! Well, turns out CN Traveler just released The Best New Restaurants in the World: 2023 Hot List. As someone who appreciates a good bite of food paired with a delicious wine or a craft cocktail here and especially abroad, I felt compelled to share this list with anyone who feels the same. Happy travels and bon appetit!



Local Art

"Fascinated with the duality of beauty and decay, the architecture of the city [Nola] became his muse. His portraits of shotgun houses and Creole cottages, captured in layer upon layer of thick impasto paint, brimmed with color and energy and captured the essence of his subject. This body of work established him as the most influential living artist in the region today."
