Near + Far // Inside, Out + About

I always love to discover new places and hear about people’s favorite adventures – and I thought it would be fun to share those discoveries with you! So each month, I’ll feature a different blogging friend of mine they’ll share with us their two favorites, near + far.


Another Monday, another opportunity to gather a little travel inspiration for some new adventures! I know for sure that I would love to visit both of this lovely lady’s favorites. I met today’s guest, Elita of Inside, Out & About at Alt Summit back in January – we were both getting tattly’d up at one of the mini parties. She had just returned from an epic adventure to Africa + her business cards included little hand warmers made with fabric she found on her trip – how cool is that! So, without further ado, here’s Elita:

What is your favorite haunt close to home?

Bosie Tea Parlor — New York, NY

I LOVE big cities, but even this urbanite needs a little break from the hustle and bustle, every now and again. Bosie combines two of my favorite things: a ridiculously good cup of tea (+ macarons to die for) and the West Village.  Stop in for brunch, wander and shop til you drop…then, swing back by for an afternoon treat. The best!

What is your favorite far away find?

Table Mountain — Cape Town, South Africa

Hands down Cape Town is one of my favorite cities in the world.  I would visit regularly, if it weren’t so far away! Should you find yourself in town, be sure to make it Table Mountain.  You can hike, rock climb, cave…you name it, but whatever you do make it to the summit, at sunset.  First, you’ll be above the clouds; it’s a little glimpse of heaven.  Then, as the last of the suns rays push the clouds away, you’ll get gorgeous views of the city below, from the harbor in the East to the Atlantic Ocean in the West.  Take me with you!
