It can be tricky (and tempting!) to stick to your normal eating routine and daily dietary habits when traveling. The first thing to remember is to stay hydrated and reach for water wherever you go! It's super easy to forget to drink water while we're rushing to our destination not to mention the dry airplane air that you'll find if you're flying.

My mother-in-law Sharyn Mandel was a fierce and fiery force in this world. A passionate educator, her life's purpose was teaching.

Travelling is like being suspended above a world that doesn't need us to function. We're irrelevant. Despite how amazing travel is, that isolated irrelevance can gnaw at us. So it's important to remember everything ends, even travel. Few ever experience these prolonged journeys. Don't let homesickness or isolation spoil your adventure.

It's really sad when terrorist attacks and other tragic events halt travel to a country, especially because people depend on the tourism industry to make a living -- from restaurants and hotels to travel companies, shops and more. But big and small risks exist everywhere: overseas and at home.

The best travel looks are made-up of comfortable yet stylish pieces that can be worn in a variety of scenarios. Simplicity is key. I designed a comfortable black dress thinking of travel. You can pair it with flip-flops for the beach or with leather sandals for dinner. Add a nice scarf and some jewelry and you have created a different look with the same dress.

I am changing, my home is changing, and the former never feels further from the latter than during weeks like this. Change happens whether you're there or not, and that truth isn't always advertised front-and-centre by everyone who encourages you to chase your wanderlust.

This first month in Córdoba has felt a lot like Frosh Week at university; there's always a new friend to get to know in my family/tribe/tramily of remote workers, and between WhatsApp and Slack, I can always find someone to grab food or drinks with if that's what I'm feeling. It would be a nightmare scenario for anyone with FOMO, because you quite literally cannot do everything at once.

The French Riviera is exquisite, and at the time of my visit, American and German tourists were everywhere, falling in love with the city, which is tailored for tourism.
