Elle Rahilly: The Stories of a Young Traveler
That same drive inspired Elle to study overseas during her junior year at UMass Amherst, where she spent five months living in Granada, Spain. The experience abroad allowed Elle to immerse herself in a foreign society, opening her mind significantly. During her time in Granada, Elle ventured beyond the Spanish borders into many different European countries including France, Switzerland Portugal, Holland, Italy and Germany, visiting the historic sites, arts and cuisine of several cultures.
Elle returned to the the States feeling like a global citizen, enlightened by her experiences touring Western Europe to continue to explore different countries, cultures and societies. She matched this with her strong passion for writing and communications, introducing her to a position writing for GoNOMAD.com
For the future, Elle hopes her love for travel and communications will take her across the globe, exploring unique and remote regions and cultures. She hopes to inspire a passion in others for adventure into the unknown.

How would you like to slow down to the pace of an Italian shepherd, spending languid hours just sitting and relaxing while your sheep graze verdant pastures in one of the most beautiful places on Earth? Oh, and at night, spend long hours at table eating the food that’s made the Mediterranean diet one of the most popular trends in food?
GoVoluntouring offers both shepherding and culinary workshops to visitors in the Puglia region of southern Italy in the summer of 2013. Participants will follow the ‘food journey’ from landscape to table and learn about how for centuries the people in the region have embraced a truly ‘green economy.’
Beauty has always been of great importance in mainstream society. Fly looks will get you everywhere, literally and figuratively. That being said, we all know that fantastic looks alone do not necessarily rack in the dough. Banking on comparative advantages, it has become commonplace in today’s world for affluent individuals to seek beautiful companions, and vice versa.
At first glance it may seem a bit glib, with the words “WHO NEEDS MONEY, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE TRAVEL FREE” stretched across the homepage, along with catch phrases such as “I only travel with beautiful women.”

Take the finest local organic produce and outdoor adventure, but compliment them with a tight-knit community, and so you have the state of Vermont. Most travelers never see this side—the one sans mass crowds of tourists swarming to the nearest mountain ski resort.
While I’ve ventured north countless winters to hit the slopes, I was curious to see what the Green Mountain State would be like during the harvest season. Enticed by a series of events that highlight Vermont’s fall attractions, my friend Dave and I headed up on a brisk September morning to discover what exactly this tight-knit community was all about.
The first site was a large wooden cabin surrounded by pick-ups and Subarus: “Eaton’s Sugarhouse” said the hand-painted sign on the cabin. I kissed my cell service and city shoes goodbye, threw on my sneakers and started to explore.
London has long been a tourist magnet, with its storied history and royal top attractions. Most visitors to London have seen the monuments, Big Ben, Tower of London, etcetera, while listening to tour guides share their history. But few have scraped below the contemporary surface to peer into the historical and cultural roots that have laid the foundation for British society.
Sterling Silver Tours strives to provide just that: a unique learning experience for travelers. Founded by a group of journalists and teachers who share a thirst for knowledge and travel, the Seattle-based travel company provides an innovative approach to exploring London by combining a television program wildly popular in the US with tours of London’s greatest attractions.
Hands On Approach
The Downtown Abbey Tour package includes hotel accommodations and breakfasts, daily tours, a gourmet dinner, etiquette courses and two afternoon tea parties, and an evening of heavy hors d’oeuvres and champagne. By rebuilding the past, the tour group provides a hands-on approach to learning that is both entertaining and enlightening.
Still intent to live in the lap of luxury both to and from London? Major airlines like British Airways drop flight prices to London three or four times a year, so catch the deals using fare alerts and other web tricks.
