If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch. Move.

THREE DAYS IN ROME

DAY ONE

ROME

Day one of my three day journey began in the heart of Rome. Landing early in the morning, I hit the ground running and made my way from the Leonardo DaVinci Airport all the way to the city center - roughly 30 minutes from the airport by bus.

Situated between Florence and Rome, in front of Civita di Bagnoregio, UNESCO patrimony, the estate is surrounded by thirty one hectares of vineyards, a beautiful sculpture garden, and breathtaking views of the Calanchi Valley.

LUGANO, SWITZERLAND

Situated in the Ticino region of Switzerland, Lugano is a little slice of Italy nestled within Swiss values. When in need of some sunshine, slightly warmer temperatures and a more relaxed atmosphere, Lugano is a three hour train ride from Zurich, making this a great weekend getaway spot - or even a day trip option.

ZURICH

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

Zurich, known for its chocolate, banks, and swans, is a city, that when studied closely, has much more to offer. The impression Zurich has made on me is that of having two personalities. Often characterized by a grey and cloudy moodiness, which gives way occasionally to days filled with sunshine and warmth (even on a cold day).

CARTAGENA

CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA

Cartagena - A major port, this small beach town has a contagious energy and spirit. Characterized by its vibrant colors, textured and worn colonial facades, and its undeniable charm of the old woven discreetly in with the new and modern.
