Editor’s Letter: New Beginnings

“It’s only in stepping outside of our comfort zone, permitting ourselves to move towards something we can’t quite picture, that we allow for the slow unfolding of memories in the making – and, yes, for that horizon line to inch back just a little further”.  Pilar Guzman, Editor in Chief, Conde Nast Traveler


It’s almost been a month since Thomas and I packed our bags and said goodbye to New York City.  Change is not always easy even when we know that it’s necessary and that our soul will thank us later.  But I do have to admit that in the short (very short) amount time we have been living in Chicago….we are loving our new city.  Some may call it the  “honeymoon” stage but even if that’s true, we are gladly taking it all in and enjoying the ride. I will give you all a longer update on that later this month! Stay tuned. 🙂

As you can see, I have decided to start this month with an “Editor’s Letter” which moving forward you will receive at the beginning of every month to introduce the content that will be featured all month long. After sharing stories on the site for a few years, I’ve decided that each piece published on the site should be part of a bigger story.  A story that connects you all to the world near and far.  Whether it’s a theme, country or region of the world…Please, Do Tell will have a more editorial feel to it. Every month will be treated less like a series of blog posts and more like a magazine “issue”. Of course, I will still be featuring travel guides and art & culture posts throughout the month but overall you will definitely notice a more cohesive travel conversation.

The theme for May will be all about new beginnings. We will be featuring stories from people who one way or another have embraced change through travel in hopes that it inspires you to welcome new beginnings into your life because if there’s one thing I’ve learned is that it’s never too late to discover yourself through new experiences.

With Love,
