A month and a half ago, I went to France for a week and while I was there, I took a French lover. He was a 24-year-old waiter that I met at the first restaurant I had dinner at and he didn’t speak any English. Don’t judge me (unless it’s for being awesome). I took two years of French in high school; he and I were basically equally as fluent in each other’s native tongue, which is to say, not fucking at all. As a result, we could only communicate in two ways: through the language of love, wink, and with the aid of Google Translate. In honor of Wanderlust 2013, and to encourage you to have your own foreign affair  someday, here are seven extremely simple topics my French lover and I were able to discuss thanks to Google Translate.  Keep reading »

I’ve mentioned AirBnB in a few of my traveling posts, most recently the story of my roadtrip from Portland to Nashville. Ever since my boyfriend Nick and I discovered the site, which lets people rent out their homes to travelers, we rarely stay in hotels anymore. In fact, thanks to AirBnB, we’ve spent a few nights in a modern townhome in Belgium, a week in a gorgeous apartment in Rome, a night in a historic home in Kansas City, 10 days in a south London flat, two weeks in a fabulous Paris apartment, a night in a midwife’s cottage in Wyoming, and the list goes on. If you’re willing to sacrifice the mint on your pillow, there are many reasons to try AirBnB instead of a hotel on your next trip. Here are a few… Keep reading »

great gatsby suite plaza

Our “The Great Gatsby” obsession just reached a fever pitch: the Plaza Hotel in New York City has debuted a suite that will transport you right to the Roaring Twenties. Filled with grey and sea foam tones, Deco-furniture and chandeliers, the Fitzgerald Suite — so named for The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda Fitzgerald — on the hotel’s 18th floor also features a library nook and a built-in bar (natch). The 700-square-foot suite was designed by Catherine Martin, set designer for the upcoming Carey Mulligan/Leonardo DiCaprio “Gatsby” remake. The only problem is that at $2,795 a night, the Frisky staff will only have to pool all our collective rent money to afford it. Boo!
