Celebrity Travel: Go Away With Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman
A. Lanikai Beach in Hawaii is beyond stunning. My partner, Andrew, and I spent a few days there a couple of years ago while attending our friend's wedding. The white sand beaches and blue-green waters paired with the epic amount of LGBTQ-friendly love in the air made for an unforgettable island paradise experience.
Q. What are your five favorite cities?
A. New York, Los Angeles, Savannah, Paris, Cape Town.
Q. When you go away, what are some of your must-have items?
A. Cocoa Butter; Melatonin; a good book to read; my journal and a pen; iPhone and headphones; vegan snack bars and a quartz crystal and pyrite stone to keep me grounded.
Q. What kind of research do you do before you go away on a trip?
A. Luckily for me, my partner is very well versed at planning travel and navigating foreign cities, so all I tend to do is search for the best vegan restaurants, flea markets or spa, et voila! It's proven to be a beautiful way to discover a city I've never been to with completely fresh eyes and no expectations.
