Last night in New York City, we threw a party at Michele Varian, the dreamiest designer home goods boutique in SoHo, to celebrate the launch of Travel Anywhere (And Avoid Being a Tourist), our new book. (Ring a bell?)

We had tasty snacks, FeverTree soda, and many bottles of rosé, which we consumed from chic Moroccan glassware. The medley of mesmerizing home goods from around the world were highly coveted by everyone in attendance — the warm crew of travel journalists, Gentedimontagna friends (and readers!), and curious travelers. Michele Varian gave the opening remarks before turning over the floor to Gentedimontagna co-founders Pavia Rosati and Jeralyn Gerba, who then signed books and shared travel stories. Here's a visual recap. If you couldn't make it, we hope to see you at our next event!
