Rude Places

Juvenile? Yes.

A little funny? Yes.

From Hooker to Spread Eagle, there are enough not so politely named places on our planet to keep you giggling like a school-girl for hours. Start clicking the interactive map and prepare to chuckle.

7 Steps to Becoming a Better Traveler

There is some wonderful advice here from National Geographic about being a more responsible traveler. We love the idea of only leaving our footprints (and some wonderful cultural exchanges) behind. 

Disconnect

Being disconnected when you travel can be a beautiful thing. But sometimes, you could really use one of your favorite travel Apps. 

We love these lists for working off-line. What are your faves?

Louis Vuitton Art Museum

The Frank Gehry-designed museum is set to open in October. We’re surprised it isn’t covered in L.V.s - then again, there’s still time.

We think it can be inspiring to be removed from our own element. This video inspires us to travel further, and deeper. And it makes us want to take better photos and see beauty everywhere - even when it makes us uncomfortable.

"To travel is to live."

About:

I am Shellie Cohen, a luxe nomad roaming from place to place seeking culturally rich and authentic experiences. Typically, following the path less traveled gives way to the most memorable journeys. Just as often, the path of least resistance is equally rewarding. Luxuries can come in the smallest packages: An exquisite boutique curated ‘just so’. A personal touch in what becomes a favorite hotel. Or perhaps the best cocktail - ever.

Wherever I am (and I’ve been to 56 countries), I seek out hidden gems to make each destination feel authentic, luxurious, and inspiring to easily find myself at home.
