Post No. 11 SOUTHERN ITALY

We just got back from Southern Italy and have never been so relaxed.

We started out in Puglia, where my father grew up, so I knew a little about about the region and planned to check out the coastal towns but also go inland to Alberobello, a small town unique for its trullo buildings, which have been designated as a Unesco World Heritage. 

Post No. 10 SARDEGNA

Cradled in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, 180 miles from the coast of Africa, Sardegna or Sardinia was originally a Phoenician settlement before being conquered by the Carthaginians and finally the Romans.

We planned this as a family trip and wanted somewhere exotic but easy to access. We decided to head to southern most tip of Baia Chia where a beautiful lagoon is home to indigenous Flamingos and most villages still speak the native dialect.

The beaches are protected by giant white sand dunes and look onto beautiful crystal waters. We made sure to explore the charming inland towns of Pula and Teulada as well as the absolutely...


Post No. 9 INDIA

We had been planning for a long while to go to India, so when the opportunity to visit both the east and west coast came up we couldn't say no!

We landed in Mumbai, where we stayed for a few days at the majestic Taj Mahal Palace. The Taj was the first of many built by Jasmetji Tata, whom decided to build it after he was refused entry to one of the city's grand hotels of the time, as it was restricted to "whites only". When it opened in 1903, the hotel was the first in India to have: electricity, American...

How I Hiatus...

CDMX is a modern metropolis shaped by many great artists and designers over the centuries. From the once dominant Aztec city-state, it emerged as a global architectural capital in the 1960s. Mexico City based and beloved architect Luis Barragan, was even awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1980 for his contributions. Modern architects like Alberto Kalach, whose portfolio includes the Biblioteca Vasconcelos, carry on this legacy today. We recently had the opportunity to stay at Reforma 27, one of Kalach's rare endeavors into the residential. Like our own designs, the building follows the classic principles: beauty, strength, and utility. Our favorite...


Post No. 7 CABO SAN LUCAS

Our spring break in Cabo could not have been more relaxing. We were excited to stay at the Grand Velas, a new hotel, wonderfully decorated by our friend Melin Castro. Set on the last sliver of undeveloped beach, right by Playa el Chileno, the hotel's luscious and colorful landscaping overlooks the very tip of the Gulf of California.

This was the perfect setting for some sunset margaritas on white sandy beaches. At night we were able to catch some of the most incredible blood moons melting warm light over the nocturnal waves.

The true highlight though, was joining the whale watching boat ride,...
