Join this Brooklyn native on her global journey of cultural immersion and healthy living. The Best Of Everything New York (TBOENY) recently had a chance to chat with Nikki Longchamp and discuss the link between travel and wellness, her New York recommendations, and why The Big Apple will always be home.
We might be living in uncertain times but you’d never know it by spending the day with Nikki Longchamp of Nikki Travels Well. Her boundless optimism and positive energy serve her well as she shares her travel experiences with her followers. Nikki learned the art of hospitality at notable New York hotspots like W New York-Downtown, SoHo Grand Hotel, and 1 Hotel Central Park. After serving locally as a tourism ambassador, the next logical step was to branch out and experience new places.
Asked how travel and wellness are linked, Nikki says the answer is simple. “Travel refreshes you. It takes you out of your normal routine and offers a new perspective. It both soothes and excites the soul. Tasting new flavors, hearing new sounds, and meeting new people allows for growth in all areas. Mental, emotional and spiritual.” It’s these tenets that guide Nikki in her endeavors across the globe.
Considering the world is her oyster, why does Nikki always return to The Big Apple after jaunts in Europe, Asia, or Africa? “Diversity, culture & opportunity” she says. “New York will always be a place where art, fashion, and nightlife thrive. The creative energy is one of constant rebirth. It’s unique to New York and I am thankful to call it my home.”
