Thanks to powerful ocean waves, and a tourism hub keeping cruise-going tourists further south, Todos Santos has kept a considerable amount of low-key, Baja charm. With a walkable downtown covered in bougainvillea, empty beaches, horses running wild, baby turtles journeying to the sea, luxe boutique stays, and wild excursions in every direction, Todos Santos has attractions for every kind of traveler. And best of all, out-of-this-world tacos.

Todos Santos, Baja California Sur
“America is my country and Paris is my hometown.”

- Gertrude Stein

On again, off again, may my yearslong love affair with Paris be to all of your benefits.

Paris + excursions in France


We ate eggplant at every lunch and dinner for two weeks. Homemade donuts and yogurt for breakfast. Fresh fish, cheap wine, grilled octopus. We stayed in suites with pools on our own private balconies. Milos was left for just the two of us. Reality has been difficult to handle ever since.
