Touring one of Charleston’s iconic homes

I spent a weekend in Charleston, South Carolina, during which time I went on a history tour with Charleston Old Walled City Tours, ate the region’s famous shrimp & grits, learnt about their haunted graveyards, enjoyed their world-famous architecture + overlooked their stunning ocean. Here’s a 1-minute video Skybok produced on this gorgeous town!

Headed by two-time James Beard award-winning chef Sean Brock, Husk’s menu is unique not only because of its interesting takes on Southern favorites but also because the menu changes twice a day.

Pineapples are a symbol of hospitality in Charleston. Back in the day, sea captains would announce their arrival and invite people to hear their stories by sticking a pineapple prominently outside their homes.

All the homes in Charleston have verandahs that face south or west.
Architecture Charleston
It was originally Charles Towne, named for King Charles II, but they dropped the “w” and fancy “e” in 1783 (it wasn’t popular to have cities named directly after British royalty then)

I’m in Aspen, Colorado. The shops in Aspen are gorgeous, I love walking around taking photos of all the high-end stuff. They are so great to check out when no one else is around. When I travel, I like to get up as early as possible and catch the best light around town. It’s amazing to see the history of some of these buildings. They are still standing from the 1800s. They are so attractive!

Charcuterie + Artisan Cheese Board at 8,000 ft

Wok charred spicy edamame, shishito peppers, garlic + sesame with a charcuterie + artisan cheeseboard at “The Living Room” in Hotel Jerome, Aspen. The room is warm + toasty (excuse the pun), it lends itself well to warming you up after chilly adventure in the mountains! As it happened, we had just returned from visiting The Continental Divide, and I couldn’t get over the mystical feeling I had from the sights of the snowy mountains. What a thrill sipping red wine and nibbling from this cheeseboard in a magnificent lounge at 8,000 ft elevation!
