ramblings from the editor Hi there! Happy Summer to all of you. As some of you may know, I have just returned from my honeymoon. After six years together, my boyfriend Sparky and I eloped one cloudy (and later, rainy) Thursday in late June. The next day, we left for a Route 66 road trip that also included an itinerary to the Grand Canyon. Because it wasn’t right to go without her, we brought our dog Giada along for the ride (that’s her on the opposite page). And she loved every minute of it. Was this a romantic trip? Debatable. But was it quirky and fabulous? Absolutely. For us, it was a perfect vacation. America is a beautiful country, and while we love getting new stamps in our passports, there’s nothing like experiencing new things here in the US of A. (Now that we have the bug, we’re hoping to make road tripping a habit.) Because we took thousands of pictures, I’m looking into creating a supplemental issue focused on our Route 66 trip - look for it in August! (And fear not, Honeymoon #2 will be in Paris later in the year. The trip will be without the dog, which we’re certain will be a tad more romantic.)

Us & our photographer (the amazing Alix Klingenberg) at The Bean. See page 58 for more Chicago must see sites.

In any case, what can I say about this issue? In a nutshell, we cover America. I’m happy to introduce Leora Novick - a girl that travels constantly and always has fashion on the mind. In this issue, she shares her thoughts on the land of bright colored saris - India! On familiar level, Megan from Bohemian Travel is back with a coverage on NYC markets. (If you’re a shopper, you may also want to check out our interview with Sarah Spies of the Renegade Craft Fair on page 76. Definitely something you do NOT want to miss if it comes to your town!) In these summer months, I hope you are enjoying the longer days and using the time to explore your world - whether you’re near or far from home - with loved ones. If you’re traveling, be safe and take the time to appreciate the beauty of your country (America or otherwise). As always, please email me at diana@toandfrommag.com for anything related to this issue. (I hope to hear from you!) Cheers! Diana (aka Mrs. Sparky)

PROTECTING

The wetlands


This Facebook Stalking is brought to you by one of my family members, who went on a volunteer trip sponsored by his company. The week-long trip was a collaboration with 10 other social responsible companies. For this initiative, everyone came together to plant 4,200 burlap soil sacks with each biodegradable sack holding one to three native wetland plants. The intent is that after a few years, these plants will help replace some of the lost land. 12

CARRY ONS Do you check your luggage at the airport? No? Welcome to the Carry On Club. Since airlines began charging for checked luggage a few years ago, it’s evident there are more and more travelers opting to bring their suitcases with them into the main cabin. While that means a few sacrifices (yup, gotta leave that large bottle of shampoo home), luckily, you have a great pick of the litter when it comes to style options. Whew.

SEATTLE’S BEST “Seattle isn’t big like Chicago, but I still think it’s the best city in the country,” someone once told me about her home town. After my first trip in 2003, I could see why she loved the Emerald City as much as she did. As it was summer, the weather was beautiful. Although the skies sprinkled for a few minutes here and there, it didn’t rain nearly as much as you would think. (The truth is that Seattle gets less rain per year than Houston, New Orleans and even, New York.) If you’re lucky to be there on a sunny day, you can see Mount Rainier in the distance. And if the conditions are favorable, take a ferry ride so that you can appreciate the sight of Seattle from the water. Truth be told though, it’s really better to be in Seattle than to admire it from afar.

Life Around the Globe with An American Girl Leora Novick is the blogger behind An American Girl in Transit and makes it her mission to find style and culture around the world. She recently pursued this while on a trip to India. Here, she shares her insights and thoughts on the land of “brightly colored pashminas, embroidered saris, and Rajastani style shoes�.

Designed by Melissa B Griffin


Everyone has their own wish list of places to visit one day. For me, it was the glamorous French Riviera, the exotic cherry blossoms of Japan, and the Inca ruins in Peru’s famed Machu Picchu. While my list of places to see was large and ever growing, one country stood out with a certain distaste in my eyes. India, with its Slumdog Millionaire reputation, extreme poverty, and herds of cows creating massive traffic jams, held no appeal for me. I figured there were many other countries with more to offer. How wrong I was. When Compass India, a luxury touring company focused on personalized experiences offered me a two week expedition through Northern Local appeal: vendor selling items to women in New Delhi. India, I jumped at the chance to find out what made this mysterious country so appealing to its swelling number of tourists. Arriving in the New Delhi airport, I was shocked to find a light summer breeze and a sweet scent in the air. This was definitely the opposite welcome I had anticipated! The next two weeks flew by in a blur of Mongolian influenced palaces, intricately carved Hindu temples, and rickshaw rides through the local markets. As I sped past the stalls overflowing with brightly colored pashminas, embroidered saris, and Rajastani style shoes, I had to stop myself from leaping off my ride and into the impossibly crowded streets. Baskets overflowed with spices and the streets were full of people, wagons, and a few lone cows. I soon learned that India’s appeal is found in its ability to provide such diverse experiences, from extreme luxury to abject poverty, in a country that is embracing Leora with local children. its ancient history while looking forward to its bright future. One particular highlight was seeing the Taj Mahal in person. I didn’t expect to lose my breath at the sight of this iconic building, but after learning its romantic origins (the Taj was built as an eternal memorial to Maharajah Shah Jahan’s beloved wife) and seeing the ornate carvings up close, I couldn’t help but get swept away. As the sun climbed steadily overhead, I snapped picture after picture of the icon, and was even invited to join in a few photos with local families. They had journeyed from a tiny village and had never seen anyone with such light skin before. It was definitely a surreal paparazzi moment for me. I ended my Indian journey with a visit to the holy city of Varanasi, situated on the banks of the Ganges River. Known for its silk industry, I couldn’t resist a visit to the

silk factories, where I got to try my hand at the intricate hand looms. The art of silk weaving is passed down through families, and children usually start at age 17. The teens put me to shame as I struggled for a few minutes to get just one correct thread. I watched with amazement as they seamlessly created the stitches that formed a brilliant metallic scarf, complete with gold strands. Afterwards I visited the showroom for my very own sari fitting, and chose a bright teal wrap with purple and gold embellishments. The scent of the markets and the liveliness of the bustling streets will always remain some of my favorite memories of India. Having only conquered the Northern part of the country, I now know to add the rest of India to the top of my ever growing travel wish list.

Located in Utah, this hotel has rooms with direct views of the beautiful Monument Valley. Better yet, The View is the only hotel in this Navajo Tribal Park. Talk about exclusive! Flip forward a couple of pages, and you’ll get a Hawaiian treat. Without needing to see the images, hearing the name of the state is enough to know that staying at this hotel will be pure paradise.

A NYC Guide

or the millions of people who visit each summer, New York City is a blur of constant inspiration. From avant-garde street fashion to Art Deco skyscrapers, it’s hard not to fall in love with the city that never sleeps.

While locals are constantly on the move during the busy daily grind, they slow down a few paces for their favorite weekend pastime: market shopping. Although there are a slew of notable indoor and outdoor markets, a few regulars stand out above the rest. Whether in search for a rare vintage necklace or simply enjoying the view, these fleas make a scorching summer in the city even hotter. Designed by Melissa B Griffin


A weekend afternoon at Brooklyn Flea


Vintage Paradise: Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market Come Here For: Antiques and Vintage Steals Scene: This popular midtown market is perfect for the quirky traveler. It’s hard to anticipate exactly what you’ll end up leaving with since most items are oddly intriguing. Browse through old photographs, channel your inner rock-star in a leather jacket or simply pick up that old-style telephone you’ve always wanted. Recommended Vendors: “George’s Collectibles” has just about anything you might need or want. “Lady D” sells coffee bean bags from Colombia, Brazil, Ethiopia and Vietnam. Hang one in your apartment for decoration or get creative by turning your bag into a rug, purse or curtains. Getting : 426 West 39th Street at 9th Avenue (closest Subway lines: A, C, E). The fun begins every Saturday and Sunday 9 am-5 pm.

Trendy Finds: Soho & NoLIta Come Here For: Local Art and High-End Jewelry Scene: Despite the close proximity of these two trendy downtown neighborhoods, each specializes in a different type of find. Head South of Houston on West Broadway to feast your eyes on work from an array of talented local artists. For more upscale boutique jewelry and hats, head northeast to Prince Street where the foot traffic is far and few. Recommended Vendors: John van Orsouw sets up his regular truck of art on West Broadway – not to be confused with the more touristy and less authentic items found on Broadway. Find hand-made metal jewelry at Andrew Clark’s kiosque or buy a graphic tee at Dangerous Breed, both located on Prince Street. Getting : Try either West Broadway (lines A, C, E) or Prince Street (6, N, R). Vendors usually set up in the morning and stay open until evening hours on the weekend.

Indie Rocker: St. Mark’s Place Come Here For: Fedoras, Bold Sunglasses and Colorful Scarves Scene: Strolling down St. Mark’s will immediately transport you to an edgier New York City. People come here for cheap international food, random accessories and the occasional tattoo. Get ready to see lots of leather, plaid and multi-colored hair – all seamlessly sported by none other than East Village residents. Recommended Vendors: Waga is an African & Ethnic gift shop in the heart of St. Mark’s. Break up your shopping trip with street food or frozen yogurt. Unlike the other featured markets, most shops on St. Mark’s are open daily. Prices for sunglasses, scarves and hats are pretty reasonable but definitely haggle a bit for a better offer. Getting : Between East 7th and 9th streets from 3rd Avenue to Avenue A (closest Subway lines: 6, N, R, L).

Fun & Fresh: GreenFlea Market Come Here For: Handmade Crafts, Books and Fresh Farm Products Scene: The Green Scene continues to gain recognition, as more people admirably work to protect the environment. This outdoor and indoor market has a laid-back atmosphere, giving shoppers enough breathing room to search for hidden treasures at their own pace. Recommended Vendors: Check out Norman’s “Out of the Norm” impressive hand-carved wood pieces or get some travel inspiration from Mingmar Tashi’s Tibetan Art Palace. If you’re in the mood for a little spice in your life, head over to spices and tease. Getting : 100 West 77th Street at Columbus Avenue (closest Subway lines: 1, B, C). Open every Sunday from 10 am-5:30 pm.


Chic Collectibles: Brooklyn Flea Come Here For: Antiques, Repurposed Furniture and Vintage Jewelry Scene: You can’t make a market list without including The Brooklyn Flea so in some ways, we’ve saved the best for last. Fort Greene is the flagship location but for a waterfront view, head straight to Williamsburg. Sample top-notch cuisine during Saturday’s Smorgasburg or wander through the local flea on Sundays. Recommended Vendors: Roots in Rust is a collection of innovative repurposed and functional living décor. “Intaglio” sells rare maps from around the world and if you aren’t quite sure what to search for, dAn’s Parent’s House has enough collectibles, each more unlikely than the next. Getting : 176 Lafayette Ave Brooklyn between Clermont and Vanderbilt Avenues (closest Subway lines: G, C, B, Q, 2, 3, 4, 5). Stop by Saturdays 10 am-5 pm, rain or shine.

If it’s a hot day, splash your feet into the shallow pond between the two 50-foot glass block towers of The Crown Fountain. If you're not too tired, bring a picnic and catch a concert at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.

Sears Tower You can call this by it’s official name (Willis Tower) although locals will use its better-known alias. Either way, on a clear day you shouldn’t miss the sky deck on the 103rd floor of the Sears Tower. To truly conquer your fear of heights, step out onto one of glass ledges. The view is worth it. (For a night cap, consider the John Hancock Building - the city’s other skyscraper. Instead of heading to the sky deck, take the elevators to the Signature Lounge on the 96th floor. You’ll bypass paying an admission, but will still get a great view as you drink away.)

Six Crafty Cities

Austin · Brooklyn · Los Angeles · San Francisco · Chicago · London

A shot of the fair in Austin this past May

I

f you have ever lost an afternoon looking through Etsy, the Renegade Craft Fair (RCF) might the perfect market for you. With five US cities on its tour – plus one international stop in London – RCF brings together the best DIY artists in a weekend market environment. Craft items include paper goods, housewares, ceramics, bath products, jewelry, clothing, knits, collectibles and artwork. Interested? So are we! Sarah Spies–Director of Media & Vendor Relations for RCF–gives us more details on this indie-craft market.

Designed by Melissa B Griffin

All photos courtesy Renegade Craft Fair.


Right center: First Renegade Craft Fair, Wicker Park, Chicago, 2003; Top and bottom: Items from the Chicago RCF.

What’s the story behind the Renegade Craft Fair? The fair started in 2003. The founder is a woman named Sue Daly. She and a friend of hers were crafters themselves. They made their own jewelry and little illustrations and things like that. They found that there wasn’t really a niche for that. At the time, there was a strong DIY and artist movement–and this was before Etsy existed. There really was a market but no venue for it. So she [Daly] went ahead and reached out to a bunch of her other friends who were crafty and put on the first Chicago Renegade craft fair which was actually in Wicker Park–not the neighborhood, but the actual park. There were about fifteen artists at the first one. It’s grown quite a bit it looks like. It has! We’re now doing 11 fairs in different cities. Wow. So what kind of vendors are we going to find at these fairs? You know what, it’s all over the map. But really, our goal is to have a dynamic fair in terms of diversity and craft. In Chicago, for instance, there are always lot of printers because it’s a great print city. But we also have a lot of housewares, jewelry makers, t-shirts, toys – really a run up the gamut. There’s definitely something for everybody.


What types of people are usually in attendance at the Renegade Craft Fairs? Again, it’s all over the place. We definitely see a lot young-ish, hipster types. But there are also people with kids since there are a lot of activities going on. Lately, what we have seen a lot more of is people almost treating this like a trade show. There are a lot buyers coming to the fair. They’re looking to create wholesale accounts with the vendors. It used to be, basically, customers buying directly through the vendors but it’s grown to be almost of a trade show atmosphere for some people. Are there any roadies that follow RCF from show to show? Yes, but not roadies in a traditional sense. There are certainly people– vendors–who travel with our show. There are definitely vendors who treat this as a road show, especially with our London show last year. We had quite a few Americans vendors who followed us all the way across the pond, as they say. So there’s definitely those that do the whole tour. For the attendees, I would say probably not so much to the extent the vendors do.

Getting back to the fair, what products do you find are most popular? It kind of depends on the city. For instance, in Brooklyn, it’s clothing because it there is such an emphasis on fashion in that area – being the fashion capital of the country. The city has its own little niche. Chicago has its print makers. San Francisco has a lot of housewares–there are a lot of great design firms in San Francisco. In London, we had a lot of jewelry and a lot of printmakers and illustrators, I noticed. The one thing in London that struck me was that their crafting trends and craft fairs are really similar as they are here. I thought they’d be way ahead or maybe certain trends would be there that we haven’t seen yet. But they’re really comparable in terms to the themes and history–it’s really similar to what we’ve been seeing here.


RCF in LA


From the London RCF show


RCF put London on the tour for the first time last year and you are having another show there later this year. Why do you think the fair worked so well there? I think it was successful because we were lucky to have the name recognition. People definitely knew about us over there. And we were very excited to find that locals who did the fair wanted to know if we would come back. That was one of the first things they would ask when we were talking, if we would come back next year. So that was great that Renegade had a bit of reputation that helped us over there. I assume you travel to each fair? Yes, there are five of us here that travel to all 11 fairs. What do you like the most about taking this on the road? One is getting to traveling. You know, being here in Chicago for the year, it’s fun to go to Austin. It’s hot there. It’s sunny. I mean, it’s like that here now, but it’s nice to get out of Chicago. [Laughs.] No, it’s really exciting to see how different parts of the country responds to the fair. Please tell me you travel in a trailer. That would be so awesome! We’ve looked into that but financially, it’s not the wisest choice. No, we fly. I wish we had a cool Airstream trailer! So Los Angeles is the next fair... what can people expect from that event? In LA, we have some exciting workshops. We have the Side Street Projects, which is a bus with a little woodwork studio inside. We also have a lot of great workshops put on by The Urban Craft Center. We are also partnering with the LA ZineFest. I think it’s a perfect partnering for us because it’s kind of underground and definitely DIY but it’s also very accessible. We’re really excited for that. Any other cities being added to the tour? As far as other international cities, not at the moment. But we might be

looking at other places in the States. But I can’t reveal the names of those cities just yet. And for those who can’t make it out to any of the Renegade Fairs, how can they purchase products or find out more? We used to have a market store, but we don’t anymore. However, they can visit our website artist page in any of our cities and they can click there and find all our current artists.

American Travels: Kym of Kym & Dustin Adventures Name/Profession: Kym White / Dog Sled Tour Guide and Blogger

Designed by Melissa B Griffin

I

’ve been on your blog and while it has a gazillion adventures, I wouldn’t classify it 100% as a travel blog. (Or am I mistaken?) How would you describe it? Yes, you are right! I wouldn’t classify my blog as a travel blog either. I would say it is kinda a mix of our life with some adventures thrown in, so I will call it an adventure lifestyle blog.


So....when did you catch the travel bug? When I was nineteen I found a website with a list of seasonal jobs from all over the country. It blew my mind that I could have a fun job and call the outdoors my office. My boyfriend at the time (my husband now) and I dropped everything and moved from California to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. BEST. Decision. EVER. Everyone in Jackson is well-traveled and I would say that we caught the bug there.

Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah

You’ve done quite a bit...what’s been your favorite adventure? Wow, it’s hard to narrow it down! I think Alaska and Hawaii are tied on this one. Both places are extremely beautiful with incredibly amazing scenery and totally different from one another. I wish I could live in each place for half of the year! If I could have Hawaiian mangoes, Kona coffee and Alaskan glaciers then I would be a happy lady.

Kym “holding up” a rock in Arches National Park


Where did your last trip take you? Alaska... but I’m not sure that counts. I go to Alaska every summer for work. Last fall we went on an awesome road trip from Alaska to the national parks of Montana and Utah. Why did you pick this/these location(s)? Fall in Alaska can get wet and cold. We needed to warm up so we went exploring. We don’t always have a plan but we make it work anyways. We went to Glacier, Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Parks. I think my favorite was Arches National Park and The town of Moab. Top: Hopping around on the Denver Glacier–an Alaskan hot spot for dog sledding tours.; Above: A view of Canyonlands in Utah


What did you enjoy most about it? Everything! The sun was glorious and it was so warm! Arches National park was breathtaking! We got to the park right as the sun was coming up and no one else was around. What did you like least about it? National parks do not allow dogs to hike on the trails so we had to find hikes outside the park that would allow us bring our dog. It was easy enough to find good places to hike with her so it wasn’t a problem. Also, Utah’s liquor laws make it hard to find a good beer.

“ I feel like there is

nothing better than a cross country road trip that takes days or weeks.

What was the best thing you ate? Fresh fruit and I.P.A. What was the best thing you bought? We bought a night’s stay in a tipi just outside of Bryce Canyon National Park. I started the trip by saying that I really wanted to sleep in a tipi so when we saw them near the entrance of Bryce Canyon I was SO happy! Would you do it again? YES!!! We might go back down to that area to go to the Grand Canyon ‘cause we haven’t made it there yet. Any advice for those planning the same trip? Get up early to go see Arches, it is beautiful during the sunrise! What do you typically travel with? My husband Dustin, our dog Dixie and my SLR Nikon digital camera. What are your general feelings about traveling in the US? I feel like there is nothing better than a cross country road trip that takes days or weeks. The U.S. is so diverse from one state to another that a road trip is the only way to experience the U.S. Other countries have good public transportation and it can be easier to experience other countries without a car.

Kym with her husband Dustin under the Mendenhall Glacier


Where are you now? Juneau, Alaska. I work with as a dogsled tour guide on the Mendenhall Glacier during the summer. I get to camp on the glacier all summer and wake up in the morning to the most amazing mountain and glacier view. Where will your next adventure take you? I might spend my winter here in Alaska. I have never stayed in Alaska during the winter for fear of being frozen, but I really want to experience the northern lights and learn more about Sled dogs. Since dog sledding is Alaska’s state sport, I figure this is the place to learn more. I also want to go on a warm vacation in the fall or spring, maybe Nicaragua, Peru or Costa Rica. Best souvenir you’ve ever picked up? The best souvenir I have picked up was my dog Dixie. We were visiting our family in California and found her at the shelter. Having a dog can make traveling a little bit harder but having her around makes every single day so much fun. Above: Dustin and Kym hiking Alaska; Kym and Dixie– a “souvenir” she picked up on her travels.

H

ow would you describe lets-be-adventurers. com? I started lets-beadventurers.com for a few reasons: to keep a personal travelogue while my fiancé and I explore everywhere we can, to set up a platform for our big travel plans next year (shhhh, it’s till a secret!) and to get some tips from fellow bloggers and, most importantly, to inspire other people to get out and explore the world. I’m just an average person with a love for travel that led me to living in Europe for the last 4 years—so many people can do the same as me, they just need to take a step. If you want it, you will get it—adventure out!

When did you get the travel bug? From a young age my parents often took us around the US and to Mexico. But I really caught the travel bug when I went bungee-jumping during a trip to Costa Rica. It was the last day of an amazing 2 week trip visiting volcanoes, ziplining in the rainforest and playing with monkeys on the beach, and we decided to go bungee-jumping in the middle of the jungle. I was so nervous up until I stood on the edge and just before I jumped I felt so alive! It was the defining moment when I realized that traveling and living life to the fullest was what I was meant to do and to just go for it! Then I jumped off the edge, it was indescribable.

Where did your last trip take you? My last trip took me to Northern France and Italy. My parents came to visit me in Amsterdam and we explored Normandy for a few days followed by a few days of relaxing in a villa in Tuscany. It was beautiful. Why did you pick this/these location(s)? My parents were dying to visit the D-Day beaches in Normandy (and who says no to a trip to France?!). Visiting the lush, green hills of central Italy was an extra treat since they wanted to drink good wine, eat fresh food and visit medieval villages while still being able to relax—so Tuscany it was!


What did you enjoy most about it? The countryside in Tuscany is stunning. We were driving through the hills between San Gimignano and Volterra and stopped whenever we pleased to enjoy the view and take pictures. It seemed like we were standing in front of a painting of bright green fields meets winding roads lined with cypress trees leading up to rustic villas. Tuscany is incredibly magical and romantic. What did you like least about it? Not staying long enough! I was so impressed not only with the Tuscan countryside but also the countryside in Northern France. Small, quaint villages, fields of yellow vibrant

flowers and random chateaus along the road made quite the view. Unfortunately we were only in Normandy for 3 days and only in Tuscany for 6 days. I could have easily stayed in either place for a week or more! What was the best thing you ate? This is a difficult one, French and Italian cuisine are both so delicious. We stayed in Paris for a day and I became obsessed with vanilla macaroons! And of course Italy has some of the tastiest food in the world. The pepperoni, garlic and sun-dried tomato pizza I ordered on our last night in Tuscany was the best pizza I’ve ever had. Hands down.

Would you do it again? Absolutely! Tuscany is the one place that we’ve always returned back to multiple times in the 4 years we’ve lived in Amsterdam. It’s so easy to get there, the scenery is unbeatable and there is fresh wine and pesto available nearly everywhere. I always recommend a trip to Tuscany to friends planning trips to Europe. Any advice for those planning the same trip? For both Normandy and Tuscany, I’d definitely say rent a car. When I travel I typically like to go off the beaten path a bit. With the freedom of a car you can take backroads and discover hidden chateaus and villages. In Tuscany, we


drove 20 minutes from our rented villa and found San Galgano Abbey— we were practically the only tourists there and it felt like we stumbled on a hidden part of the countryside. What do you typically travel with? The more I travel, the less I travel with because I start realizing what’s essential. I always travel with my camera, a gorilla pod tripod and a notebook. Before a trip I usually try to jot down some local tips from friends so I can get a unique experience. And my notebook is perfect for writing down unforgettable moments while on the road. The best part is that I can look back to notebooks I’ve filled up and reminisce about those moments I may have forgotten. How do you spend your time on long flights? The secret to surviving long flights is to bring more to do than you actually can do. I make sure to have plenty of options. When I do it like this I forget about how long the flight and usually end up switching between bouts of reading, watching movies and sleeping. And before I know it, I’ve arrived! Do you have any travel habits? (i.e. wake up early, immediately hit the streets, look for a specific food, etc.) While we often use travel guides and blogs to plot

where we want to go and what we want to see, we’ve begun leaving the books behind and just get lost in a new place instead. Rather than trying to stay completely on a set schedule, it means we can do whatever we feel like. Stopping for a local beer every few hours is great because we get to ask bartenders what some of their favorite things are to do, too. Are there on-the-road beauty products or secrets you swear by? I rarely bring a hairdryer anymore which was always necessary for my long, thick hair. Nowadays I just leave the extra weight behind and let my hair air dry a bit before I twist it in a bun overnight. When I take it out the next morning or later in the day, my hair has wavy, natural curls. They aren’t perfect curls but it still looks laid back and relaxed.

What has been your favorite US destination up to this point? I’m definitely biased to my native California but I recently fell in love with New York City. My Dutch fiancé and I stopped there en route to a wedding in California and were in heaven the entire time. We let the city swallow us up and we got lost in life in The Big Apple. Outdoor movies under the stars, hipster backyard bars, mango-chili popsicles in Highline Park, live music on the streets and my fiancé especially loved the hotdog stands on every corner. New York is really the world within a city, it was great! Where are you now? I’m in Amsterdam, Holland! I just reached my 4 year mark since I moved here from California. I loved Amsterdam from the first moment I laid my eyes on this city a few years ago and now I love it more than ever.


It’s amazing how much a place keeps opening up to you in unforeseen ways after being a local for a while. Bikes, canals, local breweries and parks? It’s so fun to live in this city. Where will your next adventure take you? In a few weeks, we will be heading over to Lisbon, Portugal, with my sister and her husband. I got a little taste of Lisbon when I was there for 1 measly day before so I’m excited to spend a long weekend there. We rented an apartment from Air BnB in old town which will be a perfect base for exploring! Right after Lisbon we fly off to Croatia for 6 days of island-hopping in the Dalmatian Islands. Croatia has been on my bucket list for a while now, and I can’t wait to swim in crystal clear water, lounge in a boat all day and dine on cheap local delicacies next to the harbor. What is the best souvenir you’ve ever bought? A pair of thick grey mittens from Finland with white reindeer on them. I had just arrived for my semester as an exchange student and it was -20 and snowing outside. I popped into a department store and pick up the gloves because my gloves from California just weren’t cutting it. That was 5 years ago and to this day my Finnish gloves never fail me! And they were the only souvenirs I brought home from Finland so everytime I look down I think about how amazing that semester was. In 3 words, answer the following: When I’m traveling I feel...alive…inspired…elated.

just book it! Because the summer is about relaxing and enjoying the short season, this issue’s book choices may seem like easy reads. Perhaps they are, but who needs a brain buster when the sunny days you’ve been waiting for all year is here, along with a busy travel and social calendar? Reading might be the last thing on your mind, but we urge you to get these books (through your library, at your local book store or on your Kindle - whatever works for you) and stick them in your beach bag.

GOOD, EASY READS

Divergent VERONICA ROTH

The Fault in Our Stars JOHN GREEN

We follow 16-year-old Beatrice Prior as she and her peers chooses their future in dystopian Chicago. The decision comes down to selecting the faction - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent) - that determines their futures, despite their pasts. Struggles, friendships and romance are all included. And don’t be surprise if this becomes a blockbuster movie sometime down the line.

A young adult novel that advanced readers will still appreciate, The Fault in Our Stars is narrated by 16-year-old Hazel Lancaster. Living with terminal cancer and taking a medication that is shrinking her tumors, her life is prolonged but her disease is not cured. Her life takes a turn when she meets Augustus Waters at a cancer survivors’ meeting. Their friendship turns into a romance and seeks meaning. In short, this is a beautiful story.

Well, here’s a book from one of the late night show’s writers and round table panelist Sarah Colonna. Female comedians have a way of tying in humor and life lessons in their memoirs. Sarah Colonna is no different. Funny and a little insightful. You’ll be rooting as she leads you through her life and career path.


ROAD-FRIENDLY BOOKS

The Great Gatsby F. SCOTT FITZGERALD

Jeneration X JEN LANCASTER

Art of Racing in the Rain GARTH STEIN

Having recently seen previews for the movie, we are inspired to reread this classic before it hits theaters in December. If you haven’t heard of the wealthy and suave Jay Gatsby and his life quest for one woman’s adoration, maybe it’s time.

Oh Jennifer Lancaster, it’s hard not to appreciate you. Full of sarcasm, wit and anger (that melts as soon as she vents),she shares lessons she’s learning as an adult. Read this (or one of her earlier memoirs), and you’ll want to make her your friend.

Written in a dog’s perspective, this novel takes us through Enzo’s life with his master Denny. Like you’d expect from any dog, Enzo proves to be man’s best friend during Denny’s highs and lows. And we’ll say this much: any dog owner might be convinced there is a bit of Enzo in her fourlegged friend.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN READING? “Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner. This is my favorite book and I finished it while poolside in Mexico. Eric travels from country to country to see which place is the happiest. I highly recommend it.” -Kym The Adventures of Kym & Dustin

"The Drifters by James A. Michener. It’s set in the 70s about a handful of young Americans and Europeans who meet in southern Spain and travel through Morocco and Africa. The vibe is great and it most definitely makes you want to drop everything and just go on an adventure. Favorite quote: ‘Youth’s a time for dreaming and adventure, not war.’" -Rachael Let’s Be Adventurers
