"I discovered Lee Litumbe's site when I was planning a solo trip to Mozambique and started to look into blogs about traveling overland. She was there about a week before I was planned to land so I started to follow her work and fell in love with her sense of style, her personality and how she finds travel experiences off-the-beaten track. In the last few years, she has evolved her business to offer content creator guides and retreats. I blame her for making me wanting to go to Zanzibar."
Arabelle Sicardi's Newsletter
"Arabelle's newsletter is one I really look forward to. It's about beauty in the broadest sense of the term: memes, culture, terror, news, self-care, etc. Her most recent one started with, 'Gonna cut to the chase: cue endless screaming...' So how can you not relate?"
"Anyone else collect places they want to go? Masseria Moroseta is a farmhouse in Ostuni, Italy that I have had my eye on for years now."
"Ghetto Gastro first got my attention at a dinner they catered, where the dessert was served on a mirror with lines of "coke" (it was powdered sugar). Based in Harlem, they create food as art—I'd consider it sculpture—and work within a space that promotes social activism and community empowerment. Based out of Harlem, when the lockdown hit, they hosted frequent IG Lives in white bath robes, interviewing their friends about what they are cooking, how they are living. Now they are doing fundraising efforts on their website for the Black communities hit hardest by the pandemic."
