Prior to Town & Country Travel, Simone spent three years living in Paris, where she was a contributing editor for Departures and also frequently wrote for Vogue. Simone received her BA in English and French from Vassar College. She lives in New York City but hopes to one day divide her time between the United States and Europe.

Sri Lanka: wild, undiscovered and heartbreaking. Mozambique: untouched and with the most pristine white sand beaches. New Zealand: so beautiful it seemed otherworldly. Sicily, a completely fascinating, varied place — I can't wait to return. And Bordeaux, an unsung treasure of a city that feels like a mini Paris without the chains and tourist crowds.
