Travel is part of our DNA. It’s how we get out in the world, live with no boundaries and, most of all, have fun. Since our June feature is all about the summer of long weekends and going your own way through travel and style, we thought we’d point the compass toward some of our BR employees and see where they’re off to in the next couple of months. (Hint: If you procrastinated booking and are looking for travel ideas, look no further!)

Who: Eva, graphic designer

Where: Paris

Travel buddy: Spring romance

Occasion for adventure: “I had no summer plans at all until I stumbled into a spring romance that has been pure magic. He asked me to join him on his solo trip through Europe by meeting him in Paris in July. Now I’m dizzily scrambling to whip up an itinerary (dizzily in the best way).”

Who: David, marketing manager

Where: Seattle

Travel buddy: Girlfriend

Occasion for adventure: “I’m a huge rock fan, so this year for my birthday, my girlfriend booked us a trip to Seattle to see Adam Lambert with Queen. Not only do I get to see a legendary band, but I get to do so in one of my favorite cities.”

Who: Carrie, store operations director

Where: Hawaii

Travel buddy: Best gal pals

Occasion for adventure: “Nothing is better than a girls’ trip—especially to Maui! We’re staying in Kaanapali, and we have access to boat tours, shops and miles of beautiful beaches. I’ve heard the water is mesmerizing and the perfect temperature for morning walks on the beach.”

Who: Lindsay, marketing manager

Where: Morocco

Travel buddy: Boyfriend

Occasion for adventure: “We wanted to do something off the beaten path, so we planned to spend time in Marrakech and in the Sahara, ride camels, go off-roading and soak up the desert sunset.”


Who: Stephanie, editorial director

Where: Japan

Travel buddy: Husband (sans kiddo this time!)

Occasion for adventure: “Celebrating my husband’s birthday. We try to take an international trip every year and this was the perfect excuse to check off Tokyo and Kyoto from the bucket list.”
