Tripping with: TV Host and Actress Carly Steel


What I love most about LA is its diversity; there really is something for everyone! Beach, mountains, city, town…you name it, L.A. has it. My favorite spot is the Chateau Marmont because it really encapsulates old Hollywood glamour, and there’s always an interesting crowd there. I love the new Nobu Malibu too; Executive Chef Gregorio Stephenson has done an incredible job with the menu and it’s right on the beach so you can eat fabulous sushi with the waves almost crashing on your table.

Perez Hilton, or Mario Lavandeira, hardly needs any introduction. Love him or hate him, he changed the face of blogging in general and celebrity gossip blogging in particular when he launched Perezhilton.com in 2004. Since then, the site has grown by leaps and bounds, currently attracting an incredible 2 million readers each month. His success allows him to regularly explore the world, having been to Turkey, Israel, and India in the past year.
