in the Big Easy
It’s a place where costumes are king, and not just over the weeks leading up to and including its famous Mardi Gras celebration, for NOLA citizens will dress up and parade in the streets given the slightest excuse. And – throughout the French Quarter and the Marigny at least – there’s “music in the streets both night and day,” as Paul Simon so famously sings.
These might sound like words you hear within the four walls of your local yoga studio, eight minutes away from home, situated between your go-to dry cleaners and a Starbucks. This could also sound like what you might hear on a remote Southeast Asian island, 8,000 miles away, amidst a symphony of gently crashing waves and swaying palm trees, while staring out at a sparkling, sunkissed ocean beneath a swirling, pink and orange cotton candy sky.
Tulum Is Trending
Most in-the-know travelers have already heard that something special is going on in Tulum, Mexico’s eco-chic, jungle-beach hot spot. Long known for its ancient Mayan ruins, this preserved habitat has emerged as the new kid on the vacay block - with good reason.
Say the words “Bora Bora” and for most travelers, an image of the bluest lagoon and the towering Mount Otemanu above it are what comes to mind. It’s a magical place and one that lovers have embraced for decades as the destination to celebrate their official unions.
