A beautiful luncheonette situated in the heart of Portland, MÅURICE is a haven in the city. Blending French & Nordic cuisines, you can't help but slow down, breathe in, and enjoy the finer things in life. You'll find fresh flowers on every table, one of the many touches that make this place special. My favourite place to dine in Portland. Recommendations: the daily quiche, a glass of rosé, and a currant + fennel pastry.

An eclectic café located in the heart of Tel Aviv, Sheleg is the perfect place to brunch. While it may be hard to choose a place amongst the many wonderful cafés in Tel Aviv, Sheleg offers a classic and simply delicious Mediterranean menu. Filled with antique souvenirs, you feel like you are stepping back in time. Recommendations: black coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, "bread break", and toast with raw tehina + date honey.

Florence is beautiful, but with the amount of tourists it can be quite overwhelming. Todo Modo is a wonderful place, located near the centre that provides a space to sit, read, and reflect. A bookstore in the front, with a bar/café in the back, Todo Modo is one of my favourites in Florence. The hanging plants, the smell of books, the wood covered interior, all provide a cosy nook to escape to. Recommendations: a glass of chianti + a pen and journal.

Searching for a place to slow down and breathe in the bustling centre of Barcelona may be challenging, but Bar Cugat provides a solution. A timeless bar situated in Eixample, with an elegant yet low-key atmosphere. While originally only stopping in for a coffee, we found ourselves returning an hour later for a wonderful dinner. Recommendations: classic tapas + vermut.

Leah Nash and Christopher Onstott are an award-winning photography & videography duo based in Portland, Oregon. They specialize in real people commercial, editorial, corporate, education, and travel photography. Both originally photojournalists, Leah and Christopher take a moment-driven approach, capturing authentic imagery whether in life, at work, or on set. The result is graphic, storytelling, portrait and lifestyle photography that is full of color, light and intimacy. Not averse to dancing (her), telling bad jokes (him) or listening intently (both), their goal is to leave their subjects a little bit better than they found them. All the while creating a wealth of images that look and feel spontaneous. They feel darn proud to work for brands like Apple, Charles Schwab, Microsoft, Chase Bank, Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, The Oregon Symphony, Marriott, and Portland State University. They also shoot for a variety of editorial clients including National Geographic Traveler, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, NPR, and AARP.

Veronica Martin is a writer based in Portland, Oregon. Her interest in the historical leads her to work with archival material (objects, ephemera), and to research gestures of the past (how people dressed, prepared food, etc., movements lost as technology and tastes changed), examining how this ecology of the past appears and asserts itself here and now. Her poetry and essays have appeared in Vestoj, Kinfolk, Hesperios Journal, Design Week Portland, and other publications. In 2014 she wrote and edited a column for Tin House’s blog, The Open Bar, about the intersection of fashion and literature, called Your Slipcase is Showing.
