Bali isn't what it used to be, but you can still find a few places that feel like they're away. I just wrote about one of them for Departures International.
Someday, I'd like to own this book shop.
Good hunting ground! I wanted to take that wrinkly, weird whale home with me.
My cover story for Budget Travel gets some love. Thanks, Fathom!
My story on a self-guided walking tour of Tuscany with my mom and sister landed on the cover of Budget Travel. I'm not sure what captured the journey better: my words or Aya Brackett's photographs. Click on the cover and check out her envy-inducing portfolio.
Planning a trip to Stonington, Maine, for a visit to the Marlinespike Chandlery. They still make rope boat bumpers. And sea chest beckets…
Some 2600-year-old texture at the British Museum.
Gilbert & George, London Pictures, at White Cube Mason’s Yard.
Wish I was here instead! When I wrote about Isla Holbox for Budget Travel in 2005, I scooped the New York Times and Travel + Leisure, who followed suit (much later) with stories of their own. And now Tatler: there’s a Holbox story in the March 2012 issue. #therefirst
Completely taken with the wax works of Felicity Powell.
More Felicity Powell. This one is called Yeti Hands. Her dark humor totally gets me. I couldn’t stop smiling in the gallery. And those hairs? They’re infinitesimal.
I almost mistook this 18th-century German Romantic print for a Henry Darger creation.
My Budget Travel cover story on the Seychelles gets a shout-out from Fathom. Thanks!
It wouldn’t be a country house without some taxidermy and a Staffordshire dog. #classic
In four months, I've gone from Lutyens' Delhi to Lutyens' Scotland. Staying at Greywalls makes me wish I played golf!
My cover story for the September issue of Budget Travel gets a mention on Fathom. Thanks, ladies!
Check out the March issue of Budget Travel because I tell you where to drop anchor.
