  What is your favorite destination and why?
One of my favorite destinations of late has been London. Like NYC, all of its many neighborhoods are filled with hidden gems for dining and musing and shopping. And it has so many brilliant outdoor markets, too. Broadway Market is a contemporary fashion and foodie dream, with serious artisan cheeses and the finest, most delicate hand sewn lingerie (a la Chantal Thomass) - at neighboring stalls. In Islington, just below the High Street is Camden Passage, a cobblestone street full of longstanding antique shops and such. You’ll find proper early 1900’s fashion, odd taxidermy, and curiosities, vintage toys, etc.
 
What is your favorite travel indulgence?
An extra shopping budget - I tend to allow myself a special self-gift of some kind; perfume from Diptyque in Paris, or potpourri from Santa Maria Novella in most Italian cities.
