Jericho: The Ancient City of Biblical Proportions

Apr 8, 2016  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

As a child, Jericho (to me), was a fantasy land where walls miraculously fell down at the blowing of trumpets and the marching of men. It was a biblical city that somehow never felt like an actual location that could be visited. Fast forward to present day, and the very real destination, is just as intriguing to my adult self as it was all those years ago.

Maybe it’s the warmer weather, longer days or all the butterflies-in-the-stomach type of love floating around—but whatever the reason, spring is one of our favorite travel seasons, especially for couples.

A SoCal Local's Perspective at Tower23

Apr 4, 2016  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

As a Travel Editor, I’m often asked about which hotels around the world are the best to visit, and this is especially true when travelers head to San Diego (where I currently reside). Having lived at the beach for the past six years, my initial response is somewhere that views out onto the Pacific. The problem is, when it comes to luxury beachside properties, there are only six that offer oceanfront locations (versus bayfront). If you want close to downtown and just steps from the beach that number gets even smaller.

Singapore is a vibrant and exciting city that is both cosmopolitan and sophisticated as well as sexy and a little bit naughty.
