“50 Best Travel Destinations” I asked great friends to share their favorite travel spots around the globe, both close to home and far, far off the beaten path. Herein are their responses.
NAME: Rachel Roy
OCCUPATION: Fashion Designer, Rachel Roy
TRAVEL DESTINATION: Ghana, Africa
HOTEL: The White Sands Beach Resort – a haven for shell collectors like me!
RESTAURANT: I bought local food from the street vendors that was delicious and unlike anything I’ve ever eaten.
BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT: Over the holidays in December – I work with a fantastic charity called OrphanAid Africa (www.oafrica.org) and I brought the children presents for Christmas.
RECOMMENDATION: The street vendors sell beautiful, black vintage-looking sewing machines that you cannot find anywhere else. I bought one for my showroom in New York and am pleasantly reminded of my travels to Ghana everyday.
