A Trailer Park Like No Other

MARFA, Texas – El Cosmico in West Texas is a creative hotel and community art project — and a place where time stands still.

Barack! Go to the Beach to Celebrate!

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC – Need a place to cool off after the hot DNC in Charlotte? Head to a beach still in summer swing. Water's fine. Bill has already stripped down to his skivvies.

Just Back From: Palm Springs

PALM SPRINGS – We laid on the floor while a series of quartz crystal singing bowls keyed to the energy centers of the body were played. It's like mental floss for your brain.

Family Heaven. With Sand and Tacos.

TULUM, Mexico – After a bumpy drive down a dirt road, a motorboat took us through nine different ecosystems. (Amazing!) Pristine, untouched, and beautiful nature at its best. 

Jamaica's Coolest Joint

NEGRIL, JAMAICA – A North American Indian-inspired compound in the middle of Negril? Enough said to get designer Geren Lockhart on the next plane to an island nation of the Greater Antilles.

Farm Fresh in Bondi Beach

BONDI BEACH, AUSTRALIA – The vibe is laid-back — surfer meets farmer Zen. The best part of my meal was an emerald soup with a fat oyster in the bowl like a crackerjack toy.
