Back in December, I was raving about a travel start-up called Nectar & Pulse. Rather than reinventing the all-inclusive travel book, N&P founders Carina & Tanja have created an exceptionally curated and designed line of city guides based on a simple concept: soulmates. The "soulmate" taps into an age-old travel fantasy. You arrive in a strange city where you know no one, but somehow bump into an engaging, charismatic local who eagerly offers to "show you around".
For those of us who have lived this dream, we cannot imagine traveling any other way. And now, with Nectar & Pulse, you don't have to - because they've lined up a bevy of interesting, creative, enthusiastic locals from across the globe to show you around. Including me.
I reached out to Carina & Tanja after reading about N&P in The Brander, and was thrilled when they selected me as one of their New York City soulmates. Check out my slideshow and interview about all things NYC on their site, or you can purchase a physical copy of my guide for only 6 euros.
A great thanks to my photographer sister, Lauren DeFilippo. Without her, neither this blog nor my Nectar & Pulse photo spread would be half as beautiful.
And of course - you can always check out my "Manhattan" tab for an extended list of my latest and greatest hotspots in NYC.
