While rock festivals in the States symbolize rebellion, in Japan they are about camping and family and nature.
Travel Package Giveaway from Global Girl Travels I’m excited to give away a travel package (scroll down) to one of my readers, as well as announce my new website, Global Girl Travels.
The Fuji Rock Festival was taking place in Niigata at the base of Mt. Naeba, not Mt. Fuji as one would naturally assume.
Just an hour-long ferry ride from Hong Kong, Macau is a must-see, must-do destination in Asia. That means that in just 6 or so hours, you could go from Guam to one of China’s most culturally diverse cities!
“Life on the Road – New Zealand” is 1,600 miles in a campervan on the wrong side of the road to 6 cities across 2 islands in 8 days minus a working stereo (or a bath, for that matter).
You’ve never seen a Holiday Inn like this. That’s because it’s the first of its kind in the world — a 5-star version of the faithful franchise.
Stay tuned for the full-length travel movie, “Life on the Road – New Zealand.” See more New Zealand photos…
I love living 5 hours from major Asian cities like Tokyo and Hong Kong. It means I can jet off to the upcoming Fuji Rock Festival to see some of my favorite indie bands perform.
The Music Cada Beijo (Thievery Corporation Remix) – Bebel Gilberto (click to buy) The Inspiration I was happy to oblige when United Airlines asked me to travel to Hong Kong and Macau to do media coverage.
The Music Of Monsters and Men – Dirty Paws (click to purchase) The Inspiration National Geographic Traveler is giving away an 8-day National Geographic Expedition to Alaska for two.
The Music Gulp – Seasoned Sun (Full album released July 8, 2014!) The Inspiration By now it should be obvious how much I love animals.
Brian Eno – Deep Blue Day (click to buy album) Landing on a glacier is nothing less than a bucket list adventure, but what made this even more special is the fact that this part of New Zealand is home to two of the world’s only three glaciers that meet sub-tropical rain forest.
Little Dragon – Pink Cloud (click to buy album) Read my review of this album. Living on the beautiful tropical island of Guam means staycations are a welcome alternative to jetting off-island to relax.
Pomplamoose – Don’t Stop Lovin’ Me (video is hilarious) Priest’s Pools is one of my favorite sights in southern Guam.
Lykke Li – No Rest for the Wicked The Music Lykke Li’s newest album, I Never Learn, finds her back with the same melancholy, romantic longing, and self-deprecation we’ve come to expect from the Swedish singer.
Little Dragon – Cat Rider (click to buy album) The Inspiration When I think of port towns, my mind gravitates toward images of feculent water and grimy sea towns rather than say, Portofino.
Nicola Conte – Jazz Pour Dadine The Inspiration I shot these portraits of my dear friends Christy and Aaron Sutton when we met for cocktails just prior to a 1924-themed gala at Hyatt Regency Guam.
Dan Croll – Maway The Inspiration I imagined crossing the Cook Straight aboard a ferry to be this romantic, tranquil journey with pods of dolphin leaping acrobatically from the surrounding waters and unreal sunsets that would guarantee my place on speed dial at National Geographic.
Yuna – Fading Flower The Inspiration I guess the biggest compliment you can give a city is to start looking for an apartment there.
Air – La Femme d’Argent The Inspiration Ironically, the most beautiful place on Earth looks like another planet.
