For me, LA is an Instagram paradise. For many reasons. It's a quick, cheap flight. I don't have to leave the country. The weather is almost always warm and sunny. Most of the city's prettiest photo locations are FREE. And, most importantly, I love the variety of sights and locations that can be squeezed into a quick visit. I was in LA earlier this month for just a couple of days, and I was amazed at how much I packed into my itinerary with just 48 hours in town - beaches, murals, hotel pools, art installations, views and even a hike!

Six years ago I traveled to East Africa to tick Uganda off my bucket list. I spent two weeks in the most remote corners of the country, embarking on epic hikes to see gorillas, chimpanzees and several monkey species in the wild. To this day, it remains one of my all-time favorite travels. And for years I've been dreaming about making it back to this part of Africa. This summer I was lucky enough to spend a week in both Kenya and Tanzania, and while neither come close to the magic that is Uganda, it was amazing to experience safari life in The Serengeti. Below is a photo diary from my adventures - seven safaris, two markets and nearly 40 hours of driving in seven days. Quite the whirlwind...

I've put together a South Korea guide to all the best spots for Instagram photos. Most of the locations are in Seoul, but there are also a few off-the-beaten-path gems tucked away in the southern part of the country. South Korea really has it all - tea plantations, cute cafes, Seoul rooftop views, colorful murals, libraries, iconic temples, etc. And it's one of the safest placed I've traveled to - that always makes taking photos so much easier.

I spent a whirlwind weekend in Punta Cana last month, my second visit to the Dominican Republic. It was three days of sunshine, turquoise water and postcard perfect palms trees at Club Med Punta Cana, and I wanted to share a photo diary from the weekend. I stayed in a spacious suite in the Tiara Exclusive Collection Space with oceanfront views and a private infinity pool. It was an absolute dream waking up to the paradise waters every morning, the Dominican Republic beaches are on another level! Our last day at the resort went on a morning excursion up to Miches to experience the iconic swings of the region high atop Montaña Redonda. Club Med will be opening a brand new resort in Miches...

To be completely honest, Bermuda was never on my radar, and definitely not a place I'd considered a bucket list destination. I knew it was an island in (or near) the Bermuda Triangle ... and that was pretty much it. I quickly learned there was MUCH more to this beautiful slice of paradise than just the myths and legends. A cluster of remote islands set in the Atlantic, Bermuda truly was a dream destination. And the kicker was that it was surprisingly not overrun with tourists, making it the perfect escape for travelers looking to avoid the all-inclusive and cruise ship crowds of the Caribbean. In fact, most days on Bermuda I wondered where everyone was? I'm so grateful the...

After a decade of traveling, I finally made it to the Instagram darling of Southeast Asia, Singapore! I had more than 20 trips to the Far East under my belt, but the island city-state located off of Malaysia's coast was always a tricky destination to get to. For me, Singapore was a place I could spend a long weekend, not a two-week holiday. I told myself I'd visit one day, tacking it onto a larger trip - maybe a visit to Myanmar, Sri Lanka or The Maldives. Then as I started to piece together a 10-day trip to The Philippines earlier this year, I realized it was the perfect excuse to finally visit the Lion City

It's been awhile since I visited somewhere really high on my bucket list. For so long, my top three had remained intact: Tanzania, Puglia and Oman. And Puglia was a place I could have traveled to a number of times, but I kept passing it up for more popular destinations in Italy - Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre and Venice. I was beyond excited to finally experience the heel of the Italian boot, the places I'd been dreaming about for so long - Alberobello, Poerto Miggiano, Cisternino, Matera, etc. And you know what? Puglia is now by far my favorite part of Italy. I wish I'd visited sooner! The region was beyond picturesque with such a variety of charming towns, beautiful beaches and...

Ciao, Rome! I just returned from an amazing week in Italy where I spent three full days exploring Rome and the Amafi Coast with City Wonders. This was my third visit to the Eternal City, but my first time using a private guided tour. We visited several sights I'd been to before, but I walked away from this trip having learned so much more about the history of these incredible places, especially The Vatican, Roman Forum, The Spanish Steps, The Pantheon and Piazza Navona. I want to visit Italy again in the fall, and I've already started looking at the tours City Wonders offers in other cities - Florence, Pompeii, Milan, etc.

I've spent the last month traveling the world with Patricia Nash Designs, and I wanted to share a few highlights with you guys from my adventures in Italy, Singapore and Hawaii. For me, traveling is all about discovering places, cultures and experiences – something that aligns so well with the Patricia Nash Designs, a brand that is inspired by discovery.

Here it is, my guide to the Yucatan and Quintana Roo. I recently spent two weeks exploring these neighboring Mexico states, and without a doubt they make up the most vibrant region of the country. In just 14 days, I experienced a wonderful mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine - I felt like I checked all of my travel boxes in a very short period of time. For this trip, I filled my itinerary with off-the-beaten-path gems; places I didn't see popping up in my social feed every week. Yes, I still made time for touristed Chichen Itza and Cenote Ik Kil, but for the most part I tried to focus on places that were off the tourist radar. Before this trip, I'd never heard of the Yellow C...
